Re: Back to backs

I use a DCC Concepts b2b gauge. Simple and easy to use albeit on set track. I'm sure they do one for code 75 though.
I used it on Monday for 2 new Hornby wagons that arrived. I check the b2b on new wagons as usually it's out.
Thanks

And finally, a close up of the ground floor on the other side of the arch with painted concrete floor.

The 2 levels are not glued together yet as I want to add the internal strength, figures, details and windows before making it a complete single building.

Re: Capacitors, chokes & mysteries - Bachmann "Hall"

Re: Bridport & District MRC - Exhibition 27th July

Good luck with the exhibition.
I'll be on foot leaving from Lulworth cove going West on Saturday so sadly won't be able to make it but due to recent events I do hope you have some sort of security at the exhibition.
