Re: Whitemans Wharf

I like the first boat. Presumably the prototype had sail propulsion as a backup ? but rather nice anyway. Not that keen on trawlers like the second one, but nevertheless both models are excellent builds. Are they kits or scratch built ? Regardless, good workmanship in both, so take a bow, sir.

Re: HS II - The Kadee Experiments

Geoff T.,

Apart from the effects on couplers of your magnetic personality (grin !), I did see a posting on another forum recommending the use of the Kadee height gauge. Just wondered if this might minimise any problems you might have,

Re: H0 ship on 00 layout

Some layouts use N gauge buildings at the back for forced perspective, so this could well be looked in the same light.

Roger Rabbit,
What an excellent idea.
That packaging can also be used for ordinary windows.

Thank you.

Re: Idiot

Had a bad couple of days with a stomach upset, needing a lot of washing done. (I'm a widower with no children) Washing machine starts flashing an error code - guess who thinks about pushing off down to local dealer for a new machine. Hold on a minute - lets look at the manual. Error code says "...

Re: Leicester Fosse (Central) Sishades new epic

First time I've looked through this thread for ages. There are so many impressive bits, particularly the houses, that it would be invidious to pick out any particular feature. A most impressive set up. Makes me realise it's time to move my butt and get some real modelling done, instead of sitting on...

Re: Seaton Junction

Agree with the CHIEF - it's a very well done layout, "wiv propa ingines". And being a Southern prototype, even better.

Re: Dremel corded multi tool 3000

The flexible shaft attachment is also very useful. It allows a cutting disk to be really close to the point at which you want to cut the flexible track.

Re: Quick signal diagram question

My Model railway (when it's built) will be an American industrial line, but I find these discussion on British signalling informative and interesting. Thanks fellas for the information and detail.
