Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

OK, spoke to my free timber man today and put an order in for 5 x 8 foot lenghts of 4" x 1" and a sheet of 10-12mm ply sheet for the baseboard top so all framework including the cross beams will be 4" x 1". This should help with the amount of wiring holes I plan to use underneath...

Re: Dead mans cutting

Excellent stuff. Im still amazed every time at the level of detail a decent modeller can get on an N gauge layout. I love the way the photos are almost staggerd to give a sense of waiting for a train in some very quiet backwater as summer evening sets in. Great atmosphere!! Love the cast shadows and...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Thanks for your reply bufferstop. After measuring again, the thinner ply is definatly 5mm thick. Not knowing sizes of boards sold in general, I wonder if 10mm ply is available as this would stop 10mm track pins from penetrating underneath? I was planning to use 3" x 1" for the whole frame ...

Re: ballast/underlay

What about Cork + Ballast rather than the pre-produced underlays available? I'm wanting the sunken channel inbetween the tracks (not sure of the correct term for this), and thus laying on cork and then ballasting but I'm not sure which cork to use as once "model railway" has been added to ...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Number 2 - light and thin (roughly 5mm) 4.JPG 5.JPG 6.JPG In this 3rd picture you can also see the TENTEST board (like sundela) but it is not perfectly flat so has been discounted, for perhaps use as scenery bases rather than the baseboard. So are these suitable for the baseboard top? As mentioned b...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Well it's been a while since I last posted so it's time for an update and more questions. I now have all the 18 PM1's I need, won a Guagemaster CDU for only £5 and have purchase lots of connecting blocks so only a heap of cable to buy now hopefully :?: Some possible baseboard tops have also arrived ...

Re: City Streets resin building kits

Bit of a long shot, but if your after only 1 kit have you thought of trying to contact perhaps the old company director to see if he has one knocking around? A quick net search and I found this - http://directors.findthebest.co.uk/l/598490/Mr-Kenneth-Horace-Hadley And if you need another goods shed ...

Just click on UPLOAD ATTACHMENT below this posting text box, browse for the file you want on your pc. Then click on ADD THE FILE box and once uploaded put your cursor in te...

Re: New Layout. Planning and Constructing.

I've never had to equip a layout with sensible buildings before, and the prices I find frightening (Bachmann, Skaledale, etc.,) though the quality is seriously impressive.(You still end up with what's on other peoples layouts, though:the "Superquick cinema effect.") I'm on very restricted...

Re: confused parent lol

Hi carins84. Just a couple of thoughts... O and G gauge are quite large for an indoor layout. If deciding on OO try to keep to 2nd radius curves and larger so all (??) loco's and rolling stock you may buy will manage the curves. Hornbys RAILROAD range of loco's and rolling stock have less delicate d...

Re: Garden buildings: chiefly large scale.

There's a lot of choice, and I think mine's not that far removed from some of the simpler ones. Anything large enough to have pillars in front would have been too big for anything else, (and to be honest too much work!). There are two Wesleyan chapels in my village, both now private houses. That's ...
