Re: A 1944 themed layout

Nice. You may find a piece of flexible track ideal for lining up the sidings. You won't need much. Just a short length.
The track is looking great.

Re: Wagon Number Sequences?

Something that may have happened in narrow gauge and was very popular with standard gauge was where a small company who owned a fleet of wagons would have a small fleet, but would want to give the impression they were large, so they would add a few numbers to mke their fleets seem like hundreds or e...

Re: Dragonfly's Workbench

Some examples. The coupling height was worked out (You don't need any great accuracy as you can be a mm out, prehaps two) so the lowestpart of the buffer will rest against the frame of my lowest waggon. The lowest waggon, a skip type waggon has little squashed wire loops sticking up and soldered to ...

Re: Dragonfly's Workbench

After a weekend spent mainly in the garage working on baseboards, I still don't have much to show on here. But one little project I've begun is building up a 7mm narrow gauge fleet. I have a couple of locos and coach kits, but first off is putting some wagons together. These are all 3D printed kits...

Re: Very simple question,

Talking about glues. I have in the past glued with paint. It was the best way to apply scatter and flock to my previous layout. Paint could also be used with card but it would need to be held firm. Probably best buy glue though! :D

Re: Soldering Iron

Others may advise more as though I have done quite some soldering I am still learning. I tend to overdo my soldering joints! Now first the question is what type of things do you want to solder? A 25 watt iron is good for electrical work as you can solder wires to rails, wires to wires etc. I would s...
