Re: Fixing N gauge track.

I'm using 1/2" x No. 2 screws to pin the track to the plywood base, but I'm not going to glue it down, just on bare plywood . It will be a shunting yard with the track in effect "buried" in the earth, and ballast tipped on top of it and glued down.

Re: Cable Mounting Brackets - 4mm Scale

Re: Dear Santa...

When are you lot going to get real ? I've already booked Rachel from "Countdown", so you'll have to settle for a couple of coaches, or a pack of Hornby buffer stops. And Yah boo to you too !

Re: List prices

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

Regrettably, I've only just seen this thread. That September 5th posting with the walls being held up by bracing, and the corner shop look absolutely super, so well done. Obviously a high standard is being maintained.

Re: How almost "Barryesque"!

Thanks for those photos - good to see them ! I don't know which is more saddening to see, the graffiti or the rust.

Re: Small Set Track DDC Plan
