Re: The Herefordshire and Worcestershire Railway, after some advice page 2

Enjoying a second look at this fine layout. I particularly enjoy the three ladder passenger station at the top, and the way in which the
fiddle yard cleaves in two in the centre. I've seen a few (thousand) American layouts and have never seen anything done like this.

Re: Henley

Thank you, Josh. I didn't know that one could easily shorten that foot bridge, yes, please drop in a photo of what you did, and thank you. The cantevelier might whack the coaches if shortened, so perhaps management will see fit to create a portal for the poor passengers to enter the platform proper....

Re: Rails in the Road

I had no idea whatever that France had such an intricate tram network. It looks to be delightful method of transportation. I often feel that the internal combustion engine has robbed us of the beauty, safety, and efficiency of many types of rail travel, this being one. Not to mention, once at your d...

Re: A Question of OO Canals, advice please.

I did take the tour of Foxshaw Gardens, a remarkable endeavor. As it was, the particular purveyor I was
trying to track down was indeed Scalescenes, thank you so very much. My own efforts will be quite less
impressive, but none the less in the spirit of things.

A Question of OO Canals, advice please.

A while back I was in search of a decent OO canal, and the prices of the old Skaledale stuff, when it turns up, is horrific. Someone had kindly mentioned a purveyor of canal images one would download, then print out upon paper in color, and mount upon a plain cardstock base. I cannot locate that pur...

Re: Triang/Hornby Stephensons Rocket

Thank you foot plate, there is a loose red wire, presumptively the positive lead,
where does it attach? I assume the motor grounds to the frame.

Re: Triang/Hornby Stephensons Rocket

rocket repair 002.jpg OK, so I've got it apart. Cannot determine the ground and the positive. Any ideas? Is that chip missing off the rotor important? Where did this red wire go? What is the little transistor thing, is that one of those suppressors to not interfere with TV signals? Can it be remove...

Re: 13 x 4 layout. Pulling hair out !!!

If I may be so bold, this is a link to a Forum Member here, and I hope it is not minded that I refer to it here.

Re: Rails in the Road

Have not, but it looks fabulous. Stateside, I lived in a rather desolate Texas town that was criss crossed by the remains of a once booming onion and cantaloupe industry, and some small industry up to the 1950's. All gone now, out the door with NAFTA. While visiting Santa Cruz, California, I was rat...
