Re: 8x4 roundy round- Lemmington - update page 12

Thanks josh,,,, for the up date it is Always interesting hearing the results when new methods are used and if the results are good or otherwise.

G'Day Gents & master Oliver. Looking good, But I'll let you in on a secret, trains run on the 'Left'. manna Haha its funny you say that manna, the layouts wired to run to the left. We had a train run from the inner to outer loop and subsequently all trains rain reversed for the rest of the day....

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Looking great there! Ive done a little mould making, its quite interesting. Always very cool seeing some ruins!

I have to apologise, when I first saw your comment on people from the future I was trying to work out why you had 'the wiggles' on your layout, then I realised it was kirk hahaha.

William was under the weather today so gave us a bit of time running trains. He enjoyed a bit of shunting.

Re: 8x4 roundy round- Lemmington - update page 12

That all is looking very nice the only thing I am not to keen on is that poly foam stuff you have used as a base. One problem you could have is not bing able to tack down the track very well and points need to be held down flat on the boards firmly or in time they can bow upwards in the middle. Thi...

Here you go mate! The cantilever is pretty high so I doubt any issues.

Re: New Layout

Ahh yes I see with your further photo. Jumped the gun, my apologies.

I think having the center cutout is great, obviously fitting to your space but giving you the opportunity to focus on only 1 part of the layout at a time which breaks it up nicely. :D

Looking foward to more!

Re: New Layout

Im not sure what your using to take photos but I manage it through my mobile phone. Im able to take a photo, I run them through a free app to change the size then upload them.

I see your last photo works. Is that to be a bridged area between the boards there?

I actually have a couple of copys of this tucked away, from memory there were a few terminus plans in the back. Ill have to see what I can dig up. Its great get...
