Re: DCC control of points and signals - guidance for an idiot

You need ACCESSORY decoders rather than loco decoders to control points and signals.
I'm going to use DCC for train control and simple DC for changing the points, this way I don't have the expense of extra decoders just for the layouts tracks / signals.

Re: And the next photo will have...(real railway version)

I think this coach is from South Africa or Asia owing to the "AS" and "SA" on the undercarriage. Repurposed outside an Indian resturant in Kent somewhere.

Re: The Best Scale And Gauge To Use?

I must admit, some of the nicest layouts I have seen have been a mix of gauges. 00 with 009 or narrow gauge for example. I did have an idea to have N gauge on my 00 gauge layout as a sit on tourist ride but changed my mind. I think it could work though. Just while we're on the subject, how about 7mm...

I finished the Pegasus Hobbies Russian farm houses kit a few days ago and have been waiting for a sunny day to take pictures in natural light but the weather hasn't played ball so here are the finished houses albeit under false lighting, making them look lighter than they actually are.

Re: Road signs

All power to your modelling elbow Gary. :)
I recently saw a boxed set of old road signs at a toy fair for an astonishing £45. "Heysoos! HOW MUCH!!" :o
I nearly needed another sign for the pothole my jaw created as it hit the floor. :shock: :lol:
