Re: Temporary, ever changing layout?

In N scale there is the option to use track from Kato; sectional track that can be taken apart numerous times. It comes 'pre-ballasted', which does look a little plastic-y and the wiring can be routed underneath.

I don't think there is an alternative for larger scales.

Re: Board design to store under the bed?

I have to ask - will the baseboard be in one piece? No matter how light the construction is I can image it would be a pain in the backside to manoeuvre a 6x4 slab out from under the bed. Have you checked to see if there is a supporting leg in the middle of the bed? Having the baseboard in sections c...

Re: Yet another struggling for inspiration thread!

Here's an idea; What about move the station to the bottom right, furthest point from the garage door. You could potentially have some extra storage loops hidden 'back stage' behind a back scene. Maybe model a smaller station with an island platform in the area you originally placed a station. You ca...

Re: ROBINSON ROAD GOODS DEPOT - Layout No.2

I think I'm going to enjoy this ! Not exactly a light bulb moment, but a crazy laughable thought. Remember the good old autochanger with records stacked ? How about doing it with layouts ? Several in a stack and move the one you want at any given time to the top to either use, or work on. Geoff T. ...

Re: Track Circuits (Train on Track Indicators.

This was a comment that I thought I'd made about the description of a latching relay as being a point motor with contacts but no points, but I found it in the drafts folder so perhaps it didn't go. If it did, I apologise for the repetition. Maybe you were thinking of a different topic :?: @Suzie me...

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

Blueday, there is an "export" function in Scarm. As NedFlanders suggested zoom out until you can see the whole plan, then go to File > Export In the dialogue box select "jpeg" and save. Your plan should now be saved as an image. Ref. http://www.scarm.info/blog/basic-stuff/how-to-...
