Foldable Spraybooth - Shows you how...

One of the youtube channels I enjoy sitting down is this this Chaps' The tools he builds are a joy to behold, for me I think of him as the Luke Towan of the "make my own tools/jigs" community. And this one might be useful for inspiration for some of us. https://youtu.be/3J6s1o6RNNk ( warni...

Some interesting Electric bits and peices

While on the Key Model Publishing website I spotted an ad for this website.

https://www.rkeducation.co.uk/model-railways-125-c.asp

Some interesting CDUs and bus bars and other bits.

I think I will be getting some of the the busbars.

Cheerio

Re: UppyDownyRoundyRoundyRailway

Grand looking layout. As for your problem turnout it appears that you have correctly identified that it spans a joint. As a rule of thumb, “thou shalt not place thy turnout undereth a mountain.” Able to shift the turn out placement? Hi Chops, Well noticed -it's less of a joint and more of just the ...

Constructive Efforts

Hello all, It's been a bit piecemeal in the last while. A bit of this and a bit of that. While doing a painful real world job one Saturday ( largely consists of monitoring devices and occasionally selecting options and sending commands for 12 hours). I had a lot of time where I had to watch a screen...

Spindleshanks

You may have noticed that the supports for the bridge deck don't appear to be symmetrical - you're correct. SpindleShanks.jpg In a classic case of coming up with a workaround and then discovering they do it already in the real world, I give you a flyover at Hornsey in London. "SpindleShanks&quo...

New decking!

Howdy Neighbours. As I was saying, The bridge deck left me less than enthused on its quality. At the time it was made out of two separate pieces of ply as I didn't have one long enough and it wasn't really that flat - the ply was obviously those offcuts/bad cuts from other sheets that I thought migh...

The visiting Were-Rabbit and friends

Nice backdrop ! :D


Yes indeed. Another work in progress, I have a couple of options in my head, not sure which way to go yet.

There's a family story to the border, so removing it completely is not an option as yet. Hiding part of it on the other hand.....

The Angle of the Dangle

So now that the first quandary fix was (kind of) in place there needed to be a bit of testing but I wasn't happy with the build quality of the bridge deck over the lower station, so reinstatement of track was on hold for the moment. i had knocked it together with bits I had to hand at the time but t...

Re: UppyDownyRoundyRoundyRailway

When it comes to testing your new facing point set up, do you have any known 'troublemakers' among your stock of vehicles? Thank you, yes, quite correct I am also concerned about the running - and that coach is one of the occasional miscreants. I don't have the crossover permanently fitted yet unti...

Ooooo ... bidirectional running and a loop!

Howdy all, After I fought my way through the playroom and cleared out 6 months of debris I considered where i had left things and what were my quandaries, having thus prevaricated enough I picked the first one and looked for my next opportunity for a mistake to make...... So, One of the operational ...

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

That's all rather impressive - I particularly like the Shades of green in the grass, when/if I get to put down some of my own I hope it looks as good as yours :idea: .

Ned.
