Re: Noch Illuminated Christmas Tree

Thanks for the replies and sorry for not coming back sooner. I wasn't sure if it was AC or DC so have tried both, but neither worked. It is the same as the N scale one in that the wires aren't shielded which is tricky. But I checked with my multimeter and all seemed to be OK. So I'm not sure. I've t...

Noch Illuminated Christmas Tree

Hello,

I just taken delivery of the above said item (code 11912) and I can't get it to illuminate?! It says on the box 14-16v and my transformer is putting out 15.5v DC but nothing is happening. Has anyone had similar problems, am I doing something wrong?

Cheers

Mark

Re: Is this physically possible?!

I've just measured my 3 lines at 13cm. I used track spacers when I layed it and these give a slightly bigger than prototypical gaps, so I think 16cm would be possible for 4 lines. But not on bends. You'd need to widen the gaps there for sure. I suggest just laying a bit and trying it with your longe...

Re: First time N gauge layout, coments welcome

This looks very good, can't wait to see it in progres. Good luck. My only concern was the gradient from the lower deck to the top section, will the gradient allow it to clear the lines below OK? There seems to be one quite quickly into the climb. You don't want your gradients to be too steep. But I'...

Re: Torr Works - Biting off more than I can chew!

Hi Barks, This is the thread that helped me out: http://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3333&st=0&sk=t&sd=a I bought it off Ebay and is very good quality. I've set mine too low though and 1/2 of it is now hidden behind hills so I need to buy another myself. C...

Re: Torr Works - Biting off more than I can chew!

Little bit of an update. I've put some fencing in, started my first scratch built building and am in the throws of fitting a tunnel portal. Here are a few pics: http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r86/mark_brody/Jan%202009/100_7489.jpg http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r86/mark_brody/Jan%202009/100_...

Brake fluid? Wow, thats a new one on me, didn't realise it had such qualities.

Re: Torr Works - Biting off more than I can chew!

Evening all, The concrete pillars are now a bit more like concrete colour and I've put the start of the horizontal pieces in. I've also decided to put some LEDs in there to give a bit of atmosphere. The conveyor is next to be built but after much deliberation I've decided not to go for a moving one....

Re: Torr Works - Biting off more than I can chew!

I've rubbed some plaster onto the wooden supports and then began to paint them. Not quite concrete enough colour yet, but getting there: http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r86/mark_brody/November%202008/100_7323-1.jpg http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r86/mark_brody/November%202008/100_7324.jpg htt...

Re: Torr Works - Biting off more than I can chew!

It does look steep in that picture I must admit. It doesn't look so bad in the flesh but I'm going to try to 'flatten' it with some tree of different heights. I'm not keen myself, but I'm stuck with it now. Any ideas? The waterfall is 100% Woodland scenics, I can take no credit other than reading th...

Re: Torr Works - Biting off more than I can chew!

Hi, Sorry I've been so quiet of late. I thought it was about time I stuck in an update and showed my progress albeit slow... The river is still ongoing under the viaduct, finally added my waterfall to the wier though. Problem is the garage is a bit cold and the river is taking a long time to dry. ht...

Re: Torr Works - Biting off more than I can chew!

Yes, that was a special delivery to the little people in the tunnel.... ahem! I now need a bit of advice though. My intention is to run 4 to 5 trains on the track at once. So as a viewer looking at the front a different train passes by every few seconds. Will it be easier to do this with DCC or thos...
