Re: Frontington & Backwoods Railway

I'm running on DC, so I don't have a constant power feed from the track It actually works for DC or DCC. :) The capacitor acts like a stay alive unit, but instead of power to keep a motor of a loco moving, it releases the power back into the circuit to light the coach when there is no track power. ...

Re: The VLBR

None of that.... take the whole train past the point and reverse into the siding back down the mainline, like so many trackmats. :roll:
Thankks

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I'm still slowly continuing with my Inn, I am now upto the 2nd floor with the lights for the ground floor glued to the underside of the upper floor. I've added internal walls upstairs so the different room lights don't bleed into each other. I've decided not to add any extra lights to the room with ...

Dry ice or a CO2 fire extinguisher?
I was told yesterday that you can buy packets/boxes of dry ice in small inch sized (roughly) cubes.

Re: Gift ideas for railway modeller

Why not a retail model shop voucher to spend on what he wishes if your not sure?
Hattons / rails of sheffield amongst others do them. Perhaps your / his local model shop too.

Re: Hattons Announces 4 and 6 wheel coaches

Very nice and very pleased these will come on the market indeed.
I never had faith in making coaches for myself but did like the look of the ratio kits so some of these will defintely be joining the fleet. :D
Thanks for the info.

Me neither I'm afraid. If I was to enter a competition it would be to make something for my layout.

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Typical! :roll: I started adding the adjustable feet to my layout legs today and found that I'm 8 short. :oops: Luckily a quick look through my receipts and I found where I bought them from so have ordered what I need to complete them. Don't you just hate having to leave a job half done. Thanks End2...

Re: Location based freight stock

A couple of ideas. Have a look at model shops for the area your modelling and see if they have commissioned any PO wagons. Try the limited edition commissioners like Burnham & District MRC (Sadly not producing wagons anymore but you may find something on thier website - https://www.burnhamanddmr...
