Re: 00 gauge tram line track

i think they just leave enough room for the points to move about, it's where you sometimes see a collection of cigarette butts etc. some sort of plaster sounds like you best bet as it could be difficult to get the rest of the road to blend in with that track that has road already on it.

Re: The cost of locos

A hundred year old tinplate boat fetched £78000 at an auction in Newbury today. The estimate was £35000 - £40000. and there was that titanic menu that was sold for a hundred and eleventy pounds :shock: there do seem to be plenty of complaints about prices here, perhaps we should have a forum for th...

Re: confused with dapol
