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

After much research into improving my Airfix Autocoach, I stumbled upon the newer Hornby and Bachmann models. Although Bachmann calls it an Auto Trailer. :? With Rule No.1 in full force, the Hornby version just looks too garish and toy like to me so, with a little shuffling of funds I manged to find...

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Very nice Dublo. "Clean as a whistle" as they say. :D There was an article in the Railway Modeller many years ago on making "flexible rock faces" the method was to make a mold with natural "fault lines" with some kind of fabric netting pressed into the back. If you don'...

There's no need to go to all that trouble. Just paint over the insulation. :wink: I haven't had it fail yet.
Thanks

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

Thanks members. Unfortunately it's worse than expected. :?
After careful study to loco seems to jerk or lurch forward once every revolution of the wheels. Something that actually stops the loco moving when running slowly.
More investigation needed. Something seems to be getting caught.
Thanks

Conductive Paint

I've used a Circuit Works Conductive paint pen (8.5g) to bridge the plastic gap on wheels so they can pick up power from the track. The pen was expensive, so needing more I looked around and found this conductive paint which is both cheaper and much larger at 50ml. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GAMD-Co...

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

My Tolgus Tin 0-4-0 just refuses to go over my crossover unless it's at lightning speed. The track is clean as so are the wheels and pick ups. It feels like I'm running clockwork having to keep touching the loco. :evil: It wiggles a bit and it and has those older wider flanged wheels. Not sure if th...

Which side for the driver?

I'd like to add an engine driver to a loco of mine but I'm not sure which side of the loco would the driver sit in a loco like this?
