Re: C and O station as it was by CandO

After reading PnP's post above I had a play about and came up with the following plans for the Fiddle Yard layout. The below diagram has Peco 55 at the top and Peco 80 settrack at the bottom.....Although PnP advocated the use of Peco 55 I like the look of the settrack more....AAAAARRRRGGGH!! Does an...

Re: PM1 point motors

Sorry for hijacking the thread slightly but are these PM1 point motors suitable for N gauge and if so how big are they? (just the bit under the baseboard) I'm asking cos my layout will be elevated with a 30mm gap between boards....thanks!

Thanks PnP - I'll run through that when I get a few more minutes....

Re: C and O station as it was by CandO

<Cough cough> Jeez it's a tad dusty in here! A quick sweep through and it's back to basics :D Hi folks, I'd like opinions on whether I'm better using ElectroFrog points or Conductive Frog please.....

Views on using cork sheet for trackbed

Hi there, My layout construction will be mainly elevated ply above the ply baseboard and I was wondering if I would need to use some cork under the track to dampen any 'echo' which may be caused by the void between the ply.
