Re: Finnington

A very nice layout there, I wish I had room to build a "roundy roundy" layout, but i'll have to be content with a small end to end for now. Also, I'd like to thank you for your guide on building a control panel, it will come in very handy when I get to that point, (excuse the pun,) althoug...

Hi guys, I am soon to begin building a layout in 00 gauge, but I am suffering from a complete mental block when it comes to planning which is where you lot come in. I know that for some of you, designing track layouts is enjoyable and so I was hoping that by throwing down some basic ideas of what I ...

In the spirit of free models, let me point you to these sites, I'm sure most of us could adapt at least some of these kits to suit our needs. http://baudandbui.free.fr/ http://www.mike.martin.dsl.pipex.com Your model is looking very good so far, keep up the good work.

Re: British Rail 1988 to 1990

I like the look of this one, my favorite era and a great use of the helix system to extend the running lines.

Re: Small oval

I think you're now onto a winner if you want to stay with set track, I personally prefer using flexitrack, but that's partly due to me buying a full box of nickel silver peco flexi a few years back. If you are happy with set track then just go with that plan and start sorting the baseboards tomorrow...

Re: New Rebuild.

Not sure what to suggest for the top set of points but I'd lose the 3 way points in the bottom circle, the crossover isn't needed between the running lines as you've already got an extended one further along. I'm not too sure if the two spurs at the top will offer any real, practical use to you, the...

Looking good as always, I'm wondering what the next project will be, but I guess thoughts of that nature should wait until at least the end of the show season, eh? :wink:

Re: Please take a glance at my first attempt. (OO)

To be honest, I think passenger workings would be totally out of keeping with the rest of your layout and it's intended purpose, also, bottom right, that short spur looks too short to be of any real use. Other than that, it offers quite good scope as a shunting layout, something that'll give hours o...

Re: Cornish China Clay Works In N Gauge

Yep, the side elevation does make my suggestion obsolete, unless you run the track under the scenery towards the rear. I like your idea though, I'd suggest building the mainlines onto the board from the outset though, rather than try to add them on at a later date. It wouldn't matter that they just ...

Re: Cornish China Clay Works In N Gauge

Well, if the points feature there in real life, leave the plan prety much how it is. I have a slight concern about the mainline link, when you do get around to building the second board, is this going to block the current viewing point of the layout? I'm wondering if you could extend the length slig...

Re: First Stab

I'd suggest swapping over E and F on that plan you've shown, it would allow the bay platfor to be used easily by trains going in both directions then.

Re: Embiggen Docks - modern 00

Quick question, but I have a box full of Peco code 80 flexitrack and I'd like to plan my layout to use code 80 medium radius points, (SL-395/6,) but anyrail doesn't feature this track. Is there any other points I can use on the program as a substitute? (I'm not sure of lengths and the net says they'...
