Re: N Gauge Plan (4 ft x 2 ft)

The layout I have attached below fits in a space of 38"*2' and could easily be extended, it allows for a station with 2 platform areas, and with a double loop you could easily double the station area.

Re: N Gauge Plan (4 ft x 2 ft)

One thing I can see being a problem with that layout is that the lines aren't linked up, and your station platforms are going to be 150 ft long in scale terms, which will fit approx 2 coaches without a loco on the front. Have a sift through the under construction board and see if you can get any ide...

Re: Graham Farish Intermodals Min. Curve Radius

I tried some on a radius one curve, they weren't heavy enough but they would go around the curves, add a bit of weight to them and they'll be fine, although they'll look pretty pants!

Re: [To be named] 38"x2' N Gauge Layout (Pics now up!)

Right, been a while since I updated but the update isn't really worth picture just yet, I've been re-doing the tunnel, it's half done, half flocked, just a little bit of paper maché just to go over the tunnel mouth. I bought 2 of the 5 point motors today as well as the CDU, and a control box, and a ...

Are CDU's essential?

After reading in a thread the other day that no CDU is needed unless 2 points are being controlled by 1 switch then a CDU isn't necessary, all of the point motors I planned to use will have their own switch, and I know that keeping the circuit closed will burn out the solenoid that is being supplied...

Re: Hallam Junction - N Gauge Layout for Uni!!

Sorry if I've missed it but is the station a ratio kit? Or did you construct it yourself?

Cheers :)

Re: [To be named] 38"x2' N Gauge Layout (Pics now up!)

Wow, It's been a long time since I updated this, for the reason that I decided to put the project on hold over the summer because of funds, and that whenever it's raining I can get it out and do a bit of work :D Now I've got a bit of a kitty built up I decided to pull up the paper maché and I opted ...

Re: Idoit seeks enlightenment.

Just use plain rail joiners on all of the rails except the V's of the points if you're using electrofrog points, no need for soldering the rails together.
