Re: Leicester Fosse (Central) Sishades new epic

An update of sorts. I have populated the station areas with some people, namely the Bachmann products which are rather good. But the main reason that I am here , is that for the first time in my life I experienced what can only be described as Train ****. Oh the joy and shuddering that ensued. It al...

Here was my attempt at water using toilet roll, pva and biscuits. The white bits were accidental but look the part.

Re: North Wales inspired layout 1970s

I strongly recommend that you do not build your layout on a duvet. It will get all soggy and wrinkly, trains will derail and your sleep pattern will be severly disrupted.

Re: Whitemans Wharf

Really do need to make more frequent updates as it is over a year since the last batch. Anyhow, I lost my mojo for modelling and it has only returned just recently. I dont have long so here a bunch of photos to show it in its current state. The original idea was to model the wharf as of Haven Bridge...

Re: Very slow Class 08

Just viewed your video and can confirm that rather than being slow it is running way too fast. These are very slow moving machines in real life and rarely went faster than jogging speed. :)

Re: Bachmann DMU, Cravens / class 105

I also took the liberty of permanently attaching the motor car and the immediate coach with micro plugs thus doubling the number of pickups to the motor. Works a treat although I am looking at conducting couplings to replace the plugs.

Re: How Good is It

My advice would be to go and buy the very best system that you can afford, after all it is the heartbeat of a layout. I would avoid the trainset type controllers and go for somethng more "grown up". There are some good starter sets like the NCE powercab (so many exhibitors use these), the ...
