Re: Rayne St, Fictional N-Gauge Layout

Thanks for your kind comments Jas & Chris & the tip about using black acrylic paint, I'll definitely be trying that one. :D :D Was also thinking of adding a resistor in the circuit to tone done the brightness. Not sure if it needs to be placed in the + or - side of the curcuit. Better do a b...

Re: n gauge winterish layout now called Rabenkralle

Nice progress Herr German.

The addition of scenic framework & buildings are starting to give it a nice 3D feel to it now. I especially like the rock faces below the girder bridge

Those n gauge soldiers look really good, excellent detailing considering the scale.

Re: Kent coast in N. Have your say...

I like this, very intriguing with its direction. Looks like another 1930s , so looks like SouthernBoy has some competitiion :D :D :D I agree with Michael. The finer ballast is more appropiate for the scale. Also it looks like it has a slight weathered look. As he said paint the sleepers too. Oil, gr...

Re: Unnamed 00 in a bedroom - Mud, mud, glorious mud!

I do like you layout Chris, been having a good read. I like the novel idea for making your own coupling linkages with staples. I know they not quite prototypical, but much better looking than OO std ones, or the bulky n-gauge knuckle couplers. The mud for a muddy area idea is a good one too. Looks r...

Re: Richford Station - A NSE Scene in N Gauge

Yep you'll need insulating joints on for both points where the two rails meet of each pair of points. You'll need to run an electrical feed to the isolated section of track,that runs by the platform, somewhere along the platform striaght. An optional thought about this electical connection. If you h...

Re: Rayne St, Fictional N-Gauge Layout-Sprung Buffers Pg6

Thanks for your kind comments guys :) :) :) Yep you can get so much more into the space with n gauge Paul. But you lose a certain amount of detail in n compared to OO & the more realistic feel of the larger scales. Although the quality of stock has improved a great deal in recent years. I suppos...

Re: Allenik TMD 80's to present day Diesel OO layout

Fantastic amount of space you have there & you've used it well. Must have taken a lot of planning. I love the sweeping curves. Too many modellers try too fill straight lines right into the corners, leaving too tight a radi. I unfortunately have a couple of those due to poor planning lol :lol: :l...

Re: PeakDale 80's 90's Modern Image

Thats a lovely looking layout you have Jon. Excellent detailing and having the option to change sheds is a great idea.

I'll definately be following this thread. Do you have a track plan we look at?

Re: Round the room

Yep points can be ballasted. Have seen many layouts where peeps have avoided doing so in fear of fouling up the mechanisim with pva.

But with care, they can be ballasted to complete the look.

Re: New member layout

Nice updates Keith. Its 1st time I've seen your thread, read through it & very interesting. You've packed in a lot of detail in a relatively small area. I noticed you said that you've used mat ballasting so you can re-use the the track for the loft layout. So I assume this layout is an excerise ...
