Re: Fort Ealasaid- N in the Highlands: Posh trees.

The trees are a great addition Luke and I think you've done a really good job round the tunnel. This layout just keeps getting better every time I look at it. :D

Re: N gauge 50s/60s era

Interestingly (or not) I found using an off cut of the foam to 'sand' worked very well especially when trying to create a smooth finish.

Re: N gauge 50s/60s era

Looks very promising. The Kingspan (and similar products) are great for this kind of terrain building.

Re: Hi. A Newbie in N gauge.

Hi Marcus and welcome. :)

Always ask away if you have any questions. I've been model making for years and am still learning. The guys on here have a wealth of knowledge and are really patient and helpful. Thankfully. :lol:

Re: Help with Peco point motors

With Seeps I'd definitely say yes. From my experience, the pins are liable to come out the solenoids if care is not taken. They can be glued back in if it does happen, just make sure that the solenoid is free all the time it takes for the glue to dry.

Re: Help with Peco point motors

They look like they'd do the job but I'd be wary cutting them in situ in case I exerted uneven pressure. That's what caused the Seep pins to come out of their solenoids. But then I am a bit cack handed. :lol:

Re: Help with Peco point motors

Definitely don't use your Xurons. Guess how I know that..... That's how I buggered mine. :(

Try a dremmel or hacksaw. The Peco point motors aren't too bad but n the Gaugemaster Seeps pins are prone to coming loose from the solenoids. Guess how I know that. :lol: A small vice is useful for this.

Wow, some great work there Luke. Your track fettling has certainly paid off. Fort Ealasaid just keeps on getting better and better. :D

Re: Unnamed DCC plank

Glad to see you won't be without a layout build Chief. It's not an era or layout type I know much about but knowing your skill, I'm sure it'll be a cracker. I'll certainly be watching. :D

All the best for the new venture. :)
