Ned's Shed

The authorities have deemed that a Castle is required for the layout.... the fact that the track hasn't been laid yet doesn't come into it apparently. Anyhowdy, a spot of browsing for a castle/folly showed up the Scalescenes castle - https://scalescenes.com/product/t020-castlefolly/ - which I think ...

Wiring, Inclines and a job that should have been done ages ago

Slow and steady fettling is the order of the day. Over a couple of evenings, when I had 20 minutes to spare, I got out the soldering iron and worked my way though the remaining main loop lines in the tunnels. not much to see for my work from here; https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48570616702_2751...

Re: 00/H0 15'x11' Simple orbital shelf layout

Hi there, I've not had much experience but I do have quite a few 2nd radius curves on my in build layout - during testing it was invariably at points or at bad joints in the track ( big gaps, slightly twisted) etc. where any derailments occurred. Once identified and sorted nothing had an issue with ...

2 steps forward......

Its definitively a case of slow but steady now, after getting the use of the playroom back by virtue of finally cutting all the joint connections I have been able to work away on the multitude of jobs that need to be done. however there seems to be an element of swans here as I have been working awa...

Re: Cannings Cross

Well done Lamby. It's all looking very good.

I've just had a most enjoyable time catching up with your progress. I love how that overall roof is looking and the greenery on the platform.

Need.

Fitting Seep motors to the three way point Pt 2

Next step - wiring up the Frogs. another tip I picked up courtesy of Everard Junction was that one motor did the left frog and the the second did the other. A penny dropped from very high with that one! Now the wiring diagram actually made sense when I looked at the frogs. I looked at the tiebars - ...

Fitting Seep point motors to the three way points. Pt 1.

While not possessing the screws to mount the seep motors to the baseboards I wanted to keep moving so I had a thought that the double-sided tape that I used on the temporary inclines might work for me. I set to wiring up the point motors https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48399848616_45efcfa8ce_b.j...

Re: UppyDownyRoundyRoundyRailway

Not that I've installed any yet but the screws I bought for my Seep's are from Brimal Componants. The thread is 8mm not including the head. They are coded HW612 but I cannot find them on the site at time of posting https://www.brimal.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=HW6 I also recently bought this too...

Movement again

With one thing and another not much has happened since but some spare time has been released so I made a start on a couple of Jobs. 1. Replace 1 curved and 1 medium point with a three way point. So at the top left here on the diagonal ( just to the left of the jam jar...)I still had a curved point a...

Re: UppyDownyRoundyRoundyRailway

How will you handle the lift out? it seems it will be very ungainly and the ends will need to clever idea to protect them while in storage! Underneath the upper station baseboard will be a void about 6ft in length, so the two halves of the diagonal will fit neatly - albeit that I haven't figured ou...

Re: UppyDownyRoundyRoundyRailway

Your lift out section appears concerningly large, and heavy but without it would be quite a crawl to get to the operating well. Aha.... The Lift out section is actualy in two pieces - as yet, all members of the household have no issues with crawling under it so while its up - no need for lift out. ...

Re: Blown TTS Decoder - what did I do wrong?

If you are using two speakers on one audio output, then if they are an identical pair, wire alike, if not identical look for any indication like coloured insulators on the tags... Sorry Bigmet, it was a general question in case there was a chance I could have wired the sugarcube speaker ( only one ...
