Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Well, I thought I'd come clean ...... not exactly 'clean', but Dave flashed his tidy, in the house workbench, at us. This is what a real workbench looks like. https://image.ibb.co/jDo1h6/IMG_2547.jpg Perhaps not exactly the workbench, but more a location for pending jobs. Things awaiting some bits t...

Re: Crisis point

Nothing New is there ? I'd always looked at your insatiable appetite for secondhand locomotives as something of a fetish. The train had to hit the buffers sooner or later. As to having self control, no problem, the problem is always mission creep. I can recall saying I was ONLY going to do blue dies...

Re: Dave's Corner

Too tidy by far !!

I appreciate the radiator location, but shouldn't that have a nice padded
seat to lounge in rather than a wooden stool ?
We need comfort, once past a certain age.

Re: Glazing buildings

Hi muggins, TimberSurf starts with exactly the same word as me ..... It all depends ....... Firstly on the size of your windows and then the type of window frame. All glues can mark windows and the actual material used, something we're not always fully aware of is highly significant. Cyno glues can ...

Re: HS II - The Kadee Experiments

Hi retiredoperator, Best to continue here with the query as it's out of context in my Workbench Thread. I gather you're wanting to use Kadees ? Are both those 57XX locomotives you have Bachmann ? If so do these two different undersides represent what you have ? https://image.ibb.co/gL0Kzb/IMG_2544.j...

Hi retiredoperator, Yes, Kev you're correct it wasn't this thread, but one in 'Layouts Under Construction' called HSII - The Kadee Experiments. Trouble is I can't really remember details of the question you asked. I can't remember if you were wanting to fit and use Kadees on a shunting layout. Almos...

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

FS123, I was so impressed with the signal box that I would - if pushed made a set of steps for it. To spoil such a superb building would be almost criminal. I could have suggested I'd make steps in exchange for a 5 story wharf-side building, but that might be a little unfair !! Anyway we're not in a...

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

It would need a 'Fancy' paint scheme ........

I must say I'm impressed with participants layouts, imagination and
involvement. A sign we have great members dallying on NRM.

Re: A new start in Finescale OO: NSR Stone junction station

Cracking work there FS123,

I love seeing experimenting - It's the only way forward
even if I really couldn't justify spending on computerised tools
like cameo cutters, 3D printers and such. No space to keep
such tings, one disadvantage of down sizing home.

Re: Loco with a mind of its own - Short Circuit?

There are odd idiosyncrasies occasionally with DCC chip/loco/controller mismatches. We had years ago on here someone with a Bachmann Desiro set that wouldn't work with a Bachmann decoder and his Bachmann DCC control set. He swapped the decoder into something else and it worked fine as did the EMU on...
