Re: My next N gauge layout!

The final update :cry: I am getting out of this hobby as it just doesnt hold the interest for me it once did. I have already sold the locos today and have started dismantling the track itself. It is getting sold as parts rather than a complete layout (well it isnt complete anyway) as it might fetch ...

Re: My next N gauge layout!

after my dismay at the sale of your last layout been following this one closely, but several months without an update! hope it's all still on track! Sort of de-railed at the moment :( Still got it and done very few little bits on it since the last update. Not really bothered though at the moment as...

Re: My next N gauge layout!

No real great leaps forward on this one :( Still waiting for some lights to come so cant fix the remaining part of the top section down to move forward on the rest. However in my impatience I have started on some scenics on the top part,hopefully this wont prove a mistake and I will damage it whilst...

Re: Random Layout

I take it then that the curve into the middle then was just to show the intended expansion but doesn't represent what you actually intend to do?
That was my point in asking :mrgreen:

Re: Random Layout

Following on from my baseboard thread , here is a rough layout plan: http://www.dynamicarcade.co.uk/pictures/Rail/Plan_v3_forum.png It's a 6'x4' 00-scale layout, divided into three 2'x4' baseboards. The split/join lines are on the plan, and only go through straight pieces of rail to make it easier....

Re: A time travellers layout - grand designs!

My research (or rather your help!) into my layouts steam/diesel transition setting has got me thinking of a bigger picture: Constructing a layout where the history of railway developement can be seen as a transition across the railway era from the beginning to the present day. It could perhaps be d...

Re: 6x4 Starter layout - new class 08

Nice,I had a Bachmann EWS 08 before and seeing as it was a DCC ready loco there was no information on how to get the body off and fit a decoder :shock: I found it a very tight fit as well and that was with a Bachmann decoder,took the heatshrink off it and put some tape on it instead as the heatshri...

Re: 9 inch radius, what struggles?

Dapol 66 I had didn't like them,made a racket as it was but twice as bad with 9" radius curves. I have 9" radius turns on my current layout as well and everything I have at the moment makes it round them fine,108 DMU,class 37 & 47 and Voyager 220. You can see and hear that the 220 isn'...

Re: My next N gauge layout!

Hi Smallman, nice work once again. I would be tempted to nnow paint the insides a grey colour, it might blend in and look better in the depot than black does. And as the black is still there no light will get through :) Just my thoughts :wink: Ste Too late now :oops: In my un-necessary haste the sh...

Re: New N Gauge Plan - Advice Appreciated

Also if it is one board can you comfortably reach to the back of it if the board is up against a wall? I think the pan has been drawn without any specific track selected,might be wrong. There is no way it can only be 2ft-3ft sqaure though,even settrack points are 3-4 inches and there are 5 along the...
