Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

The Clarence Dock section of the layout has always been run with steam engines. The past couple of days I tried running diesel locomotives. The first run with Class 25 25237. IMG_5296.JPG IMG_5298.JPG Then Class 27 27037 decided to join in. IMG_5300.JPG IMG_5301.JPG The little platform is from an ol...

Re: A Set-Track shunting loop Project

The idea sounds good.

Ah! I see the problem. There are no images I can see. :mrgreen:

Then as if by magic they can be seen.

Looking good. Love to see the scenery on it. :wink:

Re: Hello from America

Welcome on board, SM.
As SRman says OO and HO use the same track gauge.
Over in the U.S.A. you can get Peco track (as well as American makes).

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

A misty, almost rainy day as Class 25 25218 on the Leeds Central to York local waits at the signal.

And near the junction. Is the mist clearing?

The same train near Canal Corner. A shaft of sunlight?

Re: advice required

Just a thought --------------- Looking at your trackplan. It looks complicated (to me). You say you cannot stand up most of the time. Are you the only operator? Is it easy to operate; especially being on your knees? When things go wrong are they easy to correct, or mainly difficult? Perhaps where it...

Re: advice required

I'm forever building the damn thing and I always seem to get stuck at the same things I love this hobby but it doesnt half test my patience Why give up on a layout to start again when the challenge is always at the same place? Perhaps if you mention the challenge to us, someone most probably will h...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

On Monday I received an email from my model shop that some 40mm Bofors guns had arrived and was I still interested in them. I duly paid for them and they arrived Wednesday. Here they are on their first trip around the layout on Lomac vehicles, Class 47 47404 Hadrian in charge. IMG_5264.JPG A simple ...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - Maybe Sometime!

Then allowed 'the small bedroom' (11ft x 8ft) I never looked back. Family know exactly where I am. :lol: Looking forward to...

Re: Scaling in Four (or More) Dimensions

I think (in the main) that whilst a modeller will ensure a locomotive, coach , wagon, railway building etc. is 'true to scale' the scenery is a 'representation' of the real thing, because they do not have the room. Therefore a platform is not as long as the real one. A bridge or viaduct becomes shor...
