Re: Platform and trackside trunking questions

Ten commandments make it. http://www.cast-in-stone.co.uk/shop/images/l77.jpg http://www.cast-in-stone.co.uk/shop/index.htm They're under "Buffers, lineside clutter and relay boxes" I've heard people use the little straws you get with juice boxes for the orange pipes.

Re: Could anyone help me with some info please!!

Hi, I'd go with DCC a the whole track has 16volts on all the time. With DC the voltage reduces as you slow the train down. DON"T get a Bachman Dynamis Infra-red controller though, they don't work in sunlight :cry: I'm looking at changing to a Gaugemaster wireless in the future. I like the idea ...

I'm looking at DCC with a long lead.

I bought the Bachmann Dynamis but as a few of us have found out, they don't work in sunlight :cry:

The signal looks spot-on.

Re: The Blue Line OO Garden Rail

".......The Great British Summer has delayed, progress on the blue line..."

Paul's putting people like me to shame with his astonishing progress.....
The secret is he's probably planned it a lot better than someone like me who does things 'organically'.
