Hi. That looks like a well built layout you have there. Is the paper mache "real" or the powdered stuff? It looks a bit neat around the edges to be glued newspaper or similar. I used some of the powdered stuff for the bank of an incline and I found that it expands and shrinks lots dependin...

Ah, cunning! It's the N versus OO thing that makes them look much bigger than they actually are.

Excuse my ignorance, but what are all the drinking straws (?) for in the earlier pictures. There seems to be one per point - are you using them to channel wires for point switching? I thought to start with you were doing TCS...

P.S. I love a bit of Bully.

That's looking very good; very well constructed.

Is that engine ex-live steam and now electric? I see it used to have a whistle but now seems not to.

That Aussie site gives the game away - they're not just like normal trains but smaller. Rather, they're static models mounted on a belt underneath the layout so, no motor inside the locos, no de/re-railing, and nothing more complex than a single circuit.

Yeah, that's the basic theory :) you start needing a pretty powerful supply if you change too many points at once afaik. If you could find a way of changing them all in sequence from 1 button press then you'd only need a little power supply. Gaugemaster (and others) sell CDUs - capacitor discharge ...

That's fabby. The street looks so good that the shelves in the background look other-worldly rather than the reverse.

Finally got it done though. All one-and-a-half scale ruddy miles of double track :shock: My index finger is still numb even now, lol. Add to that the lower track loops, the station area and the storage sidings and I recon I've cleaned just over four scale miles of track today. If you're modelling t...

Very snazzy web site you've got there. Might be better though if the news section was the other way around i.e. new things at the top, getting older as they go down. Well it confuseled be anyway.

Hiding the wall makes a huge difference and with that shade of blue they could almost be atop a cliff looking over an azure sea. When I did a very simple board for my son a couple of years back I used B&Q bare wood primer then two coats of B&Q low emission satin wall paint. The second coat o...

Looks great. Is that mud all dry in the pictures? It looks very wet (which is fabby if it's actually dry).
