Re: Fixing N gauge track.

Thanks chaps. I did not realise that one should make multiple power connections to the whole layout ! I thought that DCC supplies full 12v to the track at all times, and I was hoping to only use about 5 or 6 pre soldered fishplates on my simple layout (probably something similar to ParkeNd's layout)...

Re: Fixing N gauge track.

I was thinking about using the lazy way, ie PECO PL 82 pre-soldered rail joiners. Is this not recommend then? I personally cannot see how connecting power wires to the fishplates can be any worse than to the rail itself, but, I am a novice!

Re: N gauge peco code 55 question (newbie warning!)

INCREDIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!! That is one superb layout Parkend. There is just so much more scope for realistic train running and ops with N scale. May I ask how you secured your track to the board? Did you mark the track layout with a pencil and then glue the track to the board? Did you use the peco fis...

Re: N gauge peco code 55 question (newbie warning!)

Thanks Pat. Here are the generic type, but I am sure that there a 2 modes of cutting. One type is for cutting rails from above, and another type is to cut the rails from the side. I want to be able to cut the track only from above !! http://www.ehattons.com/8614/Gaugemaster_Controls_XU2175B_Flexible...

Re: N gauge peco code 55 question (newbie warning!)

Many thanks everyone for all your extremely helpful posts. Having recently bought the latest bachmann graham farish catalogoue, and a peco N gauge track book, a lot of my previous concerns have gone. I really do like the realisitic layouts one can achieve on a small board with this N scale. I am pla...

Re: N gauge peco code 55 question (newbie warning!)

Many thanks for all the tips chaps, I must admit this flex track route looks a little daunting to a beginner like me. I suppose I could buy the peco setrack, but am I right in saying the rail height (code 80 I think) and sleeper size is not very realistic?

Re: N gauge peco code 55 question (newbie warning!)

Many thanks guys, so the tracksetta is not essential? I must admit I am struggling to design a layout on anyrail using peco code 55 flexi because i am not sure how to make the curves ! I do not want to make a layout with too much track, as I believe that sometimes 'less is more'. I have a spare door...

N gauge peco code 55 question (newbie warning!)

Guys, with the code 55 flexitrack for N scale railways, what happens to the sleepers when one bends the metre long track sections into curves? I assume one has to purchase the peco tracksetter tool in order to make clean radius curves? And I guess I will need the track cutters and fishplates connect...

What Era are concrete sleepers?!

Hello again, (subject of this thread should read "what ERA are concrete sleepers"!) Having decided to scrap my 00 scale project due to space constraints, I am firmly thinking of building a N scale layout and seeing as I was born in the early 70s, I fancy modelling a late 70s/early 80s frei...
