Re: First layout and limited space

I have kept a cut off from the baseboard which would add about 400mm of depth but the main problem with this is negotiation with my better half as she isn't keen on the only door to the garden being blocked by what has now become called the Transservatory express.

Re: First layout and limited space

Hi everyone, I'm back again to annoy :p ..... anyway I finally got enough free time to sort out an actual base board yay .... the negative is due to things being juggled in the room its ended up a little different size wise to how it was originally, 2000mm x 800mm which is shorter than planned origi...

Re: Lima Class 60 Body removal

That worked, I was a bit worried for a second then it popped off.

Thank you for the help.

Lima Class 60 Body removal

Good Morning, I have a Lima class 60 diesel loco and it sounds a bit rough while running even for a Lima but it was bought second hand with no instructions, does anyone have one and can tell me where the clips are to remove the body. I've had a go at removing it but there seems to be something aroun...

Re: First layout and limited space

So I went away and redesigned the station area to simplify and go with the idea to make it look larger than it is, this has also had the benefit of using only points I already have. I've also found some old flexi track which if its in decent condition after an inspection, may be good for doing the s...

Re: First layout and limited space

The left of the layout is against a wall so I can push right upto the wall to make the platforms longer. I'm going for a mainly diesel fleet using DMU's for passengers but I think two car DMU's will be the largest that will reasonably fit so I can delete the station building I had planned and move i...

Re: First layout and limited space

So I've been thinking and if I can make a foldable table that can sit at the other side of the room I might (provided its neat enough my better half doesn't hate it) be able to create more space but I'm stuck between two options. First is a small redesign, changing for the current plan to leave via ...

Re: First layout and limited space

I've actually done a pretty big re-design again to squeeze a bit more in and also bring the yard to the front where its easier to reach to decouple anything. The only problem with this layout which I havn't come up with a solution for is the bottom most siding can't be used as a siding without trapp...

Re: Thinking aloud.

I had a visit there last week, it's a lot bigger than I had expected and more dangerous to the wallet :P

Re: First layout and limited space

I do like the idea of a fordable board but after an hour of measuring and adjusting plans I just can't get it to squeeze in. However I have had a future scoping idea, if I can come up with a way to add removable parts to go in front of the door I can happily run the track around the edge of the cons...

Re: First layout and limited space

I thought about trying n gauge but since I already have 00 gauge stock, track and locos it seems a better option to build out from what I have. As for a loop, ive tried my class 60 round 1st order curves and it didnt enjoy it so even smaller will take it off the list options which is a shame as its ...

Re: First layout and limited space

Using new money its 2 meters by 0.75 meters. Then there is a small area to the right of the table where the room tapers in which is an awkward shape but would allow me to fit in a shelf for a fiddle yard off the main board.

Re: First layout and limited space

Ok so things have changed, which has caused a major rethink. To explain quickly, my original base of a paste table while never ideal went from bad to worse as I discovered just how warped it had become so it was a complete no go. Fortunately I was reminded of an old table I had stored away which is ...

Re: First layout and limited space

Ok so I've been away and come up with a plan to shuffle the table to make a little space for a fiddle yard to solve all my problems, so here is the new and hopefully final plan.
