Re: How Tall (yard lighting)

Yard lighting now installed (less ladders which will be fitted after more scenic ground work) https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49302867868_7454e57050_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49303354156_9ea6e13907_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49303354181_366e83bda2_b.jpg

Re: Modify and combining standard points and slips

How much would it be to buy the two Peco elements and with some careful measuring, cutting and soldering do it yourself?

Re: New layout design.

I'm sure my landlord would be well impressed with that :mrgreen: If you just take out hinge screw's, so at later date it can be replaced with no damage. Curtain pole could be the expandable type like some shower curtail poles or some exercise bars. no damage to door frame. https://cdn.shopify.com/s...

Re: Semi-Foldable Model Railway

You Can also think about the height of the layout, My layout is 1300mm high to make more storage underneath, fit my computer and printers underneath. This means that depending on supports for the railway bikes could fit underneath..... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49280039668_f5e43d5591_h.jpg

Re: Semi-Foldable Model Railway

If your layout ends up 11' x 6 ' (I think that's what you mean) you will find it very hard to reach the middle and side against the wall to fit scenic's and reach any stuck trains. you may be better off with a long thin shunting yard. I started a 6 x 4 hinged to the wall on 6' side and had to scrap ...

Re: How Tall (yard lighting)

This is a 100mm mast, but with the addition of the power/telegraph cable bracket I am thinking a little shorter (5mm) so the cable carrier is the same height as the telegraph pole cable carrier! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49145711667_d962d1940c_b.jpg Yes Bufferstop I do know the final decis...

Re: Anyrail 6 users help please

I have always thought that £45 is too much for full version.
Maybe I would pay £20 ish and if many think the same then they could make more money!

10 people @ £45 = £450
100 people @ £20 = £2000
