Re: MILLSEND WORKBENCH/BREAKFAST BAR

I do like 'Milly', I have this thing about small hard working locomotives
and with the Millsend weathering treatment it's going to look great !

Re: Wobbly Bachmann Wagons

Hi Matt, I like that idea. Just yesterday I was sorting out 'bad' wheel sets, as I said earlier even one set of Alan Gibson wheels needed to be replaced. What I'm doing to putting the duff wheels into non-running scenic cameo wagons like a Dapol kit meat wagon with doors stuck open, a cattle wagon w...

Re: Good Morning

He, He, flattrack60, a mischievous sense of humour !
Reminds me of my first layout - "Two short planks & a bit on the side"
4 years, so early stages still !!
Welcome to our crowded abode - never big enough for all the ideas,
or time to make them.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

What a cracking set of photographs ......
Made me wonder how many locomotives 'Guy' has been hauled by !
looked very much at home there on that extensive and well made
layout. All good stuff.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Easy to find - just go back to page 1, towards the bottom.
No matter how many pages we end up with page 1 is always
there to pick out without having to sift through loads. Which
is why I left it in Dave's comment.

Re: Hello - I've been inspired!

Ahh just my sort of thing, well done I like that !
If you've not looked at it yet you'll find several
of my dioramas in the 'Not A layout' thread.

Re: Budgetbrooke

What can I say Matt !!

Thanks on behalf of all members, the photobucket disaster tore so much out
and it's great to see restoration.
I think I still have up to 1000 photos to try and identify and reinstate - someday ?

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I'm a big believer in painting all the baseboards, top & bottom.
It's a way of trying to seal and stabilize moisture content to reduce
subsequent movement .... although in truth nothing works !

Re: Hello - I've been inspired!

Yes, Another welcome aboard Kavster. Been doing some dioramas, as good a start as you'll ever get, dare I say my favourite part of the hobby. Beware of planning the big loft layout, better to start with something you can get up and running quite quickly. There is always a learning curve and best to ...

Re: Wobbly Bachmann Wagons

There are so many off centre wheels it's an embarrassment !! Many of my wagons wobble, Parkside Dundas supplied Alan Gibson, Bachmann, Dapol perhaps worst of the lot ? I have very few Hornby wagons. B2B is nothing to do with wobble, although the accuracy needs to be between 14.5 & 14.3. It's bas...

Re: Not a layout - but railway modelling

You naughty man Jim !! I'm too busy at the moment, CM at an exhibition in just over a week and then my Fosdyke Drove in the diorama competition on 31st, BUT. I was wondering what size axle 'N' gauge wagons have ? I wonder if some 'N' wagon wheels could be modified to make a low light trailer ? Crazy...

Re: Operating 'Minories' and Improvements

No problem running straight onto a slip. I've not looked to see, in fact you may not have mentioned,
but Code 100 slips are all insulated frog design.
Those two rails that join at the 'V' are the ones that must have the IRJ's.

Are you O.K now ?

Re: Operating 'Minories' and Improvements

One thing I didn't add ............... Don't see having a live frog point as being a problem They ARE the best thing to have and when wired correctly are the ideal. Peco do packets of nylon rail joiners for your two lines away from the 'V' If it's easy enough to lift just try with these IRJ's (Insul...
