Re: arboretum valley

We've had a few dogs over the years. The first dog was highly intelligent. A Sealyham Terrier. Saved my life when I was a baby.

Re: Query for people making their own points/junctions.

I just went ahead and experimented. My work is not neat. I also often heat up rails to move them a little... And yes, I make mistakes and need to correct them, but somehow I get there. It is an i teresting learning curve. I never have used jigs. My track is a bit rough and ready which suits narrow g...

It does not always rain here though! (Just to prove we do get sunshine!)

Re: Gaps in track

Seeing flexible track laid in that manner makes me cringe - It really is very simple to slice off those rail chairs with a sharp knife. I tend to agree here. Does not take long to gently remove the chairs with a sharp knife and do a neat job, but as long as it works and gets the trains running! Beh...

Re: Complete New Layout -Advice

It all depends on the available space. Usually most of us make our plans to suit the location. There are ways via online programs to plan a layout, but I tend to try things and see if they fit. Is different foe me as I am now into 7mm narrow gauge. When I was into 00 gauge more, I would use Hornby t...

Re: Some help

I will need to look myself. Though not a diarama but a mini layout, I put mine in the "Model layouts under construction" section as it is not finished yet..

Lots of nice places. The seagull was near the railway and it was about to fly off.

Re: eHattons re pricing on enquiry?

I never forget the only time I part exchanged a car at a well known car dealer in Crosshands in Wales. The vehicle I was buying was a year and a half old. It was kept from me how many previous owners it had had! I became owner number seven. I had been promised £1000 for my old car in part exchange. ...

Re: Peco 0 gauge track (code 143 / 32mm)

Ah. There. At least that is a question answered. I know it is not a problem with 7mm narrow gauge on 00 track because most mechanisms used are from 00 gauge chassis. Ok, they don't work on 0 gauge track, but you can use 0 gauge wheels on SM32 track. At least this option exists if you have to make wa...

Re: UK or Bust 2020

I've never been to an official football or rugby match. I would not be concentrating on it as I'd be in a bit of a panic with the crowds and all the noise! Working trains crammed with rugby crowds was so difficult, and I sometimes had to retreat to the back cab to survive! Something worth visiting.....

Re: Peco 0 gauge track (code 143 / 32mm)

The thing is, unless the manufacturer or the model shop has tried it, no one knows. A few 0 gauge enthusiasts have used code 100 rails to represent light railway track. If you have a means to turn down any deep flanges, it is not going to be a problem. Ok, single cast pairs of wheels may pose a prob...
