Re: New 1/32 Diorama but this time in slow motion

Your scenes are amazing. Just a thought. Did you know that Smallbrook Studio do loco and rolling stock kits in 1/32 scale?

Re: DC to DCC And Back To DC Again!

That Lenz DCC control system is the exact one that I have, and it is very good and if anything, it still holds its own today because more modern DCC systems do not actually offer that much more if one looks at them in a practical way other then having a few extra sound functions, which to be honest,...

Re: DCC Theoretical Question.

The idea is to run the locomotive from onboard batteries via radio control. Yes, there have been and are DCC systems that have wireless control from the handset to the control system, but this is not where I see the advantage of a control system. I see it in the ability to run on track that has a co...

DCC Theoretical Question.

Question. There are radio control systems like Deltang and others that do not rely on track power, though they can actually be made to work with track powrr, but it defeats the object. Is it possible in theory, to have a radio control interface that allows one to use a DCC controller to power trains...

Re: DC to DCC And Back To DC Again!

I may have edited it a little since you wrote. With DC, unless one just has a trainset style simple oval,I would always use cab control with or wirhout common return (Depending if the controllers are comaptible with common return or not). The DCC advantage on a larger layout is less wiring and if on...

DC to DCC And Back To DC Again!

I invested heavily into DCC just over 20 years ago (Was it really that long ago?) and as things progressed, I stayed out in front of the DCC technology for a fair few years and ended up with my first DCC sound loco, extra handsets and an extra booster etc... I worked it out I had spent over £1000, b...

Re: New layout...OO or N gauge

If you want something different and can stretch your space to 4ftx2ft, were you aware that with both 7mm narrow gauge and 4mm narrow gauges one can fit a small oval of track on them? I believe Pinknosedpengins layout is 4ft x 2ft. Mine is a little larger and is just under 7ft x 2ft as I wanted to in...

Re: New 1/32 Diorama but this time in slow motion

Oh. I know the plant you mean. It grows in towns. Not sure it does that well in the countryside as it needs walls to grow on.

Re: New 1/32 Diorama but this time in slow motion

It might be the stuff that grows in ponds. If it is, we did have lots of it, but then we had ducks.

What is glycerin? I did look for some before to rubberize lichen as we have lots of lichen growing around here, but I did not know where to get it or how to use it.

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

It is interesting. I used to have a Mainline wagon "Ellis & Everard". If any would come off the track it was that one, but I was mixing the older Hornby and Lima stock with wide couplings with this Mainline medium coupling wagon. BUT, what I will say is that because my other Mainline w...

Re: New starter Layout 00 Gauge

Thanks. I am downloading it but I do not know if it will work as it says it is for windows, and I do not know what system this tablet works on. I will see if it works when it finishes downloading. It is taking a while so far...

Ammended. It says "Can't open file". It was worth a try.

Re: New starter Layout 00 Gauge

Though I would consider a headshunt and other safety features, just by altering your plans a little bit so as to avoid curved points and also make the lines a bit easier to use, how about something like this? (Sorry. I do not know how to get the train track software. I would love to use it and know ...
