Salisbury Model Centre

Called in at Salisbury Model Centre this week. Clean, tidy, friendly staff, nice selection of accessories and 'bits', especially scenic materials. Came away with some DECAdry rubdown transfers which I hadn't seen anywhere else. 37 Fisherton Street, Salisbury on the way from the railway station to th...

Re: signaling junction.direction modern 3 or 4aspect signals

I don't think he has really grasped the fact that whether the signal is LED or otherwise you only need a small signal to get into sidings and not one of those big multi aspect thingies. They are for the running lines, not for going into sidings where the Driver has to proceed at a slow speed. matty1...

Re: GWR during WW2 Questions

Many wooden boxes, GW and others, had brick walling built around the bottom part of the box up as far as the operating floor to stop the blast damage. Unless you knew you would assume it was just part of the structure as built. Others, it was a bit more obvious.

Re: EBay shenanigans

On that general subject I have never been able to work out that when an article starts at 0.99p and there are no bidders you can put in a bid of (say) a pound and it immediately comes up as being outbid and then shows an amount far in excess of the starting price. How do they do that ? It's the same...

Re: DP2, the genesis of class 50

Those railbuses were always a peculiar ride, especially over the points where you got the sensation of going straight ahead, and then lurching left or right when the chassis got to the pointwork. I used to ride on them regularly when they were on the Northampton - Bedford and Bedford - Hitchin servi...

Re: signaling junction.direction modern 3 or 4aspect signals

That, I am afraid, I can't help you with.

Perhaps there are others on here who can help you.

Re: signaling junction.direction modern 3 or 4aspect signals

A diagram will help, but you might find the British signalling is different to those in other parts, so one signal might cover many routes, or you might need more because one signal will not cover the area you want. We need something to go on to give a good answer.

Re: signaling junction.direction modern 3 or 4aspect signals

More details please, with a diagram if you can. Short answer is one of these, for starters. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7101/7303850058_3e983954b4_z.jpg Its the little one on the left. The main red aspect you can see is the controlling signal, and the small triangular one comes one when the route ...

Re: Soldering Stations

Keep an eye out in Lidl's. I got a Parkside PLS 48 A1 soldering station, cost me under thirteen quid. Three types of solder included, pointy and spade type blades (for which spare can be bought) and 5 heat adjustments. I use it in preference to my Maplin one. Nothing wrong with either, just the Park...

When I was in the game a train with an X in the headcode denoted 'exceptional' amd had to be accompanied by an RT3973 issued to signaboxes in advance showing the exact route to be taken, without deviation, and any restrictions that might apply, ie limited to a lower than line speed at particular poi...

Re: M G Sharp - Sheffield

I had the same problem when I emailed them some time ago, nor did they answer the phone. I went to Sheffield and a decent bus driver dropped me right at the door just at ten o'clock when they should have opened. Half past ten still no sign, and no answer from the phone. Jumped on a bus to go back an...
