Re: Need Help with a 6x4 foot track layout.

Have you had a look through this thread, http://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=15038 . There are lots of links to different trackplans. You might find one you like. Or you might like to combine parts of different layouts. Let us know what you think. Alan.

Re: SCARM - Simple Computer Aided Railway Modeller

Hi Mixy. I haven't gotten around to trying that with the circles yet. I have a question though. In the 3D viewer is there a problem with the snapshot tool. It doesn't seem to make either a bmp or jpg file for me.

Thanks
Alan.

Re: Thomas At Silver Fox Island - one for kids to drive

Excellent idea with the matches. One to store away for later use (hopefully). The grass growing down the middle looks great. I've been keeping an eye on this one. It's looking good. I look forward to the next update.
Alan.

Re: Thomas At Silver Fox Island - one for kids to drive

Kebab stick? They kinda look like matchstick size. Would kebab sticks be similar. Would gluing them to a piece of paper speed things up. The paper could be hidden under the platform on the inside. Just a thought.

Edit: I now see you posted at 4 o'clock. I may be a tad late with that idea!! :roll:

Re: great waterton 00 gauge ideas

OK so I couldn't resist. Here's what I was trying to explain in your other thread. Don't know if it'll fit or if it's workable or even if it's any way realistic, but hey. My thoughts were, that either 'mainline' should be able to access either platform, and that either platform could depart directly...

Re: GT WATERTON LAYOUT 00- ideas?

I agree with Gronk about the curves and running them to the back edge. Then again if you are limited to that space, it may be irrelevant. May be a future extension though. I think the curved turnout on the top left looks like it's too close to the edge. Is there enough space to get an engine onto th...

Re: SCARM - Simple Computer Aided Railway Modeller

Mixy, the 3D terrain is a great new addition. I really helps to show how things look, when there are bridges and tunnels involved. I look forward to seeing those mountains and valleys added. As you can see I've been experimenting some more with the libraries. Any ideas on how to make circles. I want...

Re: Wiring a Traffic Light

My 3 way switch arrived yesterday. Wiring that was a whole pile of fun :roll:, but I eventually figured it out. Won't get to do any more for a couple of days but I'll post again when I get a chance, with some pics of my creation. Did somebody mention solder ... Oh no :o

Re: Model Rlwy in Philippines

I like the layout. It has great potential for running a whole variety of trains. I can't see your previous plan (maybe you've removed it), so I'm not sure where the stations are, and I can't quite figure out the inner area. The outer tracks looks like it'll give you plenty of room to run a couple of...

Re: Wiring a Traffic Light

Thanks lads. I will look into that. A rotary one should work just as well. I have a go at that, but I'll keep looking out for a toggle switch too.

Re: Wiring a Traffic Light

So ... I went to Maplin this morning and it seems that they don't have any three way switches (on-on-on switches). And they weren't too bothered about looking into it either. Well okay, they were a little busy. Usually they're waiting at the door to ask if you need help. A happy medium would suffice...

Re: Wiring a Traffic Light

Thanks for the replies. Bufferstop, yeah the relay is probably OTT. It is something that I want to do whenever I get a proper layout up and running but I don't think my 3 year old needs that. I know what you mean about Maplin's website. Hard to know what you're looking at when you're a new to this! ...

Wiring a Traffic Light

Hi. I've made and wired up a traffic signal and I'm looking for a bit of help. I want to make it for my 3 year old, with a switch to change colours (not bothered about red and yellow lighting together. That doesn't happen here (Ireland)). I've used an ON-OFF-ON (DPDT?) switch to switch from red to g...
