sad to see it go.. it will be missed!

with DCC, you can have more than one loco on any stretch of track without having to isolate and block off sections.

makes wiring up a whole lot easier, but adds extra cost with the needed decoders.

good luck, and can;t wait to see the next one!

Hi All, thanks for the replies, they are greatly appreciated, as always. This layout really is amazing - I'd probably get a headache if I had to run it all, it's so big! Does it need cleaning often? How long does it take to clean it all? :shock: My Dad has a number of Relco units that do a pretty de...

in reference to inclines.. they are fine.. but.. you generally don't want to have them on a curve if at all possible.

If it's on a straight, and gradual enough, any loco should be able to haul a reasonable train up it.

(ie: Hornby 58 hauling 14 hoppers)

Absolutly fantastic! A job very well done! Just a question.. how much space do you have to work with.. and.. any chance of a track plan? Does not have to be exact, or even to scale.. just getting some idea's for when I build by new layout in a significantly smaller area than I am used to working wit...

As promised.. shots of the new GWR extension... This is where the extension joins up with the rest of the layout: http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g193/Blue_Dalek/10-08-07/IMG_0359.jpg the line then snakes off, over the removable section. It's on wheels, and simply rolls out of the way. http://i56....
