Re: Crazy Prices

I have been thinking a similar thing about their (Along with other manufacturers) locos, rolling stock, track, controllers etc! I think I am behind the times when it comes to prices! I would imagine they will be lovely buildings though, and put it this way. If one is prepared to pay £150 for a decen...

Re: Hornby terminal male ends hi all.

Those end parts should be available from Hornby. I don't know the price or if they have them but I would imagine they do. Buying those contact switches that Hornby make... See if you can get them secondhand as new they are expensicve. (Try Elaines Trains or somewhere like that). Make sure they are t...

Re: Hello from jane

Hi and welcome. Someone mentioned about modelling on a budget (Or words to that effect). I am modelling to a tight budget and basing my modelling on the type of prototype which was run to a tight budget, but in the days when most other such narrow gauge lines were starting to close so one could pick...

Re: Hello From Sunny Norfolk

Hi and welcome to NRM Forum. Sounds exciting! Japanese N gauge. Unusual for us in the UK. Out of interest, have you been to Japan? Those lovely long trains do need a small scale to get the most out of them as Japanese passenger trains are pretty long! I am now an 0-16.5 modeller. More about trains h...

Re: '0' gauge- Another for the club.

Weight is a funny thing. My loco number 1 has ended up slightly too heavy as though it goes ok, it does not wheelspin, and really wheelspinning does provide that little "Give" to prevent damage elsewhere. Other locos I have need a little more weight. (Which I add when I need to. The rollin...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Great story Bigmet, you are right it's quite remote around Bayford, I heard a story when I worked at the 'Cross', a driver hit a Deer, when he exited Bayford tunnel with a empty DMU, he went to Hertford Nth, picked up his passengers and made his way back to Bayford, where he had to stop...

Re: Suitable Curve

If you are using 00 gauge, then 39 inches is just enough for first radius which will just about fit in 36 inches if one does not have any edges. So it can be done in 39 inches using first radius curves. I would use sectional track to do this if you can like Hornby or Peco Settrack as it holds the cu...

Re: Edgware GN,

Nice. The building looks interesting. It does look small for a station building but they came in all sizes and shapes.

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

Wise words, Mountain. I think many potential modellers get put off the hobby by trying to run before they can walk. It's easy to get swept up in the initial enthusiasm. I'm definitely guilty of that. When I returned to model railways after a gap of many years, I decided that I would build a main li...
