Re: Cutting MDF straight

No, definitely tenon saw as it's all I had to hand, I kept it more or less flat to the surface and got a perfect straight edge.

Re: Cutting MDF straight

Always used a tenon saw myself, enables a straighter cut if your line is drawn out.

Class 14 Farish

Hi all, does anyone have this model? How does it run over Set Track points? I've noticed that it has a longer chassis than most 0-6-0 loco's so I was wondering if this was less of a problem than it is with the standard 0-6-0's?

Re: Latest idea:

Thanks, I was planning on having a small station so I could operate a single or twin coach service pulled by the Class 14 I will be buying, even though it is a bit un-prototypical, but the idea of a good shed is a good one, I was planning on having mainly grass land with maybe some animals in fields...

Powering points

Could I use a generic power transformer for powering points? Say if I found one with an AC output of 1A at 16V? As the controller I have doesn't have an accessory output.

Just to point out I was referring to an HST 125 (2*class 43's and 8*Mk 3's)

Re: Train lengths...

An HST at full length and you're looking at about 5 feet, just under.

Re: Warley 2010

Best layout by far was the one with the little WORKING cyclists, it was fantastic...it drew a large crowd, the Japanese one with the working level crossing and stuff was great too!

Re: Laying N gauge track

You need to add screws yourself, I used some nuts and bolts with a counter sunk head and then drilled a counter sunk hole into the baseboard to accommodate the head of the bolt.
