Re: Who wants to test some card building builds?

Looks good, the eaves seem too deep and extend beyond the roof, the lintel's on the wall are too large, corners are good but too thick and a little more blending of brightness for over all aged look.

I would like to try one.

Re: Sleeper Spacing again!

Going to use 'Peco Streamline Code 100' at the moment because of older running stock. (Requested by committee member)

I looked at some GW point drawings and the Peco points are quite accurate (Sleeper spacing wise)

These other makes and sizes, whats the price comparison??

Re: Sleeper Spacing again!

My plan is to use Peco track and cut the webbing, I just don't know the best spacing!

This will weaken the track but once it's ballasted it should have plenty of strength.

Re: Megapoints Controller (Point Servos)

I have now received back the re-flashed board with the latest update and fitted it back on layout,
The re-flash of course came back with factory setting so I had to reset end-stops which is easy enough and expected.

I works a dream, nice slow movement, no twitching, fantastic.

Re: Megapoints Controller (Point Servos)

Yes that's the problem I have. other than that is fantastic, easy to wire, full instructions, slow and accurate movement. Its only that constant twitching that spoils it and if that's cured with a update they are perfect for me.

I have sent it back just waiting for it's return now, fingers crossed.

Re: Megapoints Controller (Point Servos)

Does anyone have the problem of twitching with Megapoints? I purchased a controller some time ago now. I have not been able to work on the railway for some time Before I had a forced break I was having some problems with the Points controller, the problem being that the servos twitch all the time.

Re: Coppenhall Goods (Late Crest) 00

OK How would the (1.) semaphore look similar to A. or B. or something else, should the bracket for the shunt signal be on the right as the head shunt is on the right?
