Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

The scenic potential of your board is increasing significantly :D - I'm following with interest... I doubt my scenery will be as lovely as yours, but I have a few ideas to put a different "Slant" on things which will hide my shortcomings as I am a bit out of my depth. The good thing is th...

Re: Mixed Traffic Train Set R1236M (which DCC Chip)

Before going doen the stay alive route, if the loco goes and then stops with the acceleration slowly starting up again... Have you tried turning off the settings for inertia and back EMF etc? As sometimes, unless the loco has lots of pickups, a slight interuption which would not even be noticed when...

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

I don't really know what I'm doing as I am making it up as I go along. I need to be aware that I need room for the legs to fold underneath the board so certain areas I can't go too deep, and I can't go lower then the framework of the board unless I make it into seperate parts. So I am just enjoying ...

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

Looks ideal. Are those parts from another unmade Smallbrook kit I see?. :D

A few chassis will fit from the looks of it. Even a reversed Hornby 0-4-0 may squeeze into there (One without piston rods?).

Re: Mixed Traffic Train Set R1236M (which DCC Chip)

Not wanting to confuse things, as I am a little out of date with modern DCC as I stopped buying DCC about a decade ago... But doesn't stay alive need to have a decoder that works with the stay alive gadget? (So one may need to get a suitable decoder that can be used with stay alive if one wants to g...

Re: Hello from Poland

:roll: Hello and welcome. Just running trains is fun. H0 and 00 can be freely mixed apart from the couplings, so one could do with adopting one coupling type and using that. I make my own couplings, but there again, I am modelling in 7mm narrow gauge which I find easier to scratchbuild in... But I d...

Re: Has the torrent of new RTR OO suppliers halted?

Yes. Certain things (And to be honest, one can never tell what they will be) will go up in price due to an unexpected demand. For example, the recent shortages of Peco track. Who would have known that this scinario would have taken place!

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

I have not done a great deal but I have done a little which involves pinning and glueing hardboard to the holes and then cutting out to deepen the holes, and then glueing more hardboard on and cutting it again... This adds depth and the idea is that it also adds strength, where if I filled in the ho...
