Re: Few questions regarding ballasting?

ASFC - do i need to add anything else to the water, like a small drop of washing up liquid, or does that not matter? Nope, just water. As you have already realised it isn't a quick job and new fishplates will be needed. Add a drop of washing up liquid,not so much as to make loads of suds though :D ...

Then soak the track in a bowl of water for an hour or two, before cleaning with an old toothbrush. Leave to dry before re-use. No idea on Cork I'm afraid, I don'...

Re: The sheer awesome and win of grafar/bachfar

Ill try Br lines then. The bachmann line seemed to be closed today. :evil: Funny that, because like most manufacturers, they are shut until 4th Jan 2010. If I remember correctly, it was never Bachmanns job to service old Poole built locos anyway, they gave that to BR Lines. Perhaps you have been ba...

Re: Minimum Radius Curves

Hi, Does anyone have any idea if a Dapol class 66 loco(N gauge) is okay with R1 setrack curves. Thanks Martin Yes and no! I had a Dapol class 66 that would go round them but made a right racket when it did :shock: The loco was noisy as it was but going round R1 curves it was a lot worse. And I have...

OK then, are they any good, i.e. worth the money? :)

Re: Andrew's garage layout - Hookstoke Junction

No offence, but I saw more of your Garage than the layout. Perhaps you need to find somewhere to park your camera to give an overview of the layout (or part of) and then leave it, as looking at the movement of the film made me feel dizzy. Also pictures speak alot on their own, take a look at beerand...
