Baseboard joint problems

So back last Autumn I was busy laying and cutting the various baseboard joints and having varying degrees of success, and there are a few running issues I must address before all the ballasting can take place. This base board joint appears to have lost its transition gradient. If a loco is going slo...

Trackwork developments Its been a while, the trains had to take a back seat for a bit but every now and then a few things got done - here's some trackwork news. TV corner was going to become available for "Train Table" expansion so the trackwork for the upper station was rationalized. Orig...

Re: 6x4ft GWR beginning layout

Absolutely brilliant! :D

A great inspiration ( at least to me) for those of us that are "Scenically Challenged" (bare baseboards :( )

Well done to you,

Ned.

Re: So, My First Ever Layout Starts ....

Hi Blueday, there may be a more elegant way to do it but what I did was to zoom out until I could see the full plan ( presuming you have a windows PC/Laptop), open the "Windows Snipping Tool" ( Click start and just start to type Sni..... it should appear in the search results) Then I click...

September was slooooooow.

Well, September went fast and the progress was slooooow. Didn't get much headway - and I've confirmed that I don't like laying track on inclines! After getting the inclines stuck down and the cork roadbed in place I couldn't face laying/wiring the track on it. As I looked at the baseboard joint at t...

Ratings? - when/where do they come out?

Hi all,

Seeing as last year the series performed well enough to be renewed and extended I am interested to find to how its getting on this year thus far relative to how it was doing last year.

How do TV ratings get published etc?

Re: Getting Off Lightly

Wellllllll, As a youngster, not sure what age exactly but it was probably before primary school age, I wombled under a 6X4 Marklin layout that my father had bought and proceeded to cut most of the wires with a nailclippers! As I'm still here - I suggest I got off lightly! :shock: That said, when I w...

Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

We all enjoyed it again this week. One of the minor criticisms of the first week in our house was that there didn't seem to be much "Railway" involved, to which I suggested that depending on the theme and teams, that content would ebb and flow. Sure enough this week much more railway was a...

Some cardboard mock-ups, starting the powerbase and small jobs

Not much to report over the last two weeks, still tipping away at the list After getting the inclines in, I laid cork down on the trackbed. The cork I have is some self adhesive floor tiles, which was all that was in stock nearby when I started laying track. As I was in the horrors of the glue on th...

The Lartique Monorail - Listowel, Co Kerry.

One of the few preserved (recreated, if I'm honest) railways near me - The Lartique Monorail ran from Listowel to Ballybunion in Co. Kerry and had what can easily be described as a fairly unique approach to both rolling stock and permanent way. The drawbridge road crossings in particular reminded me...

Castle/Folly suggestions

Thanks for your suggestions.

the Domestic Authorities reviewed them and picked the Scalescenes one.

I've also bought the Box File layout from them to also practice with - that should be entertaining.....

Cheerio,

Ned.
