Re: CMX TRACK CLEANER - Anybody got any opinions (Good or Ba

Hi guys. It's a year tomorrow (02/12/16) since I started this thread so just out of interest I thought I'd put the 'thread to bed' so to speak. Well in that year I've not been able to find anybody with a CMX cleaner in stock in the UK. Early in the year (around March/April) I got in touch with DCC S...

Neil, try FreeTrackPlans.com.
There are loads of different track plans for both ends to end and continuous runs (Ovals etc) on this website.

Re: Newbie Here, All advice Welcome, New Man Cave

Hi Neil and welcome to the forum. That's a really nice looking 'Man Cave' you've built there. It reminds of my time over 10 years ago when I started a similar journey building my 'Layout Shed' for PETERSDALE. You've come to the right place for both inspiration and advice regarding anything model rai...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Hi guys. Well Warley exhibition weekend’s come and gone again. I keep saying I’ll give it a miss but at £9.50p return from Northampton virtually straight to the door it’s not too expensive or that much effort really to get to. I had to go this year anyway to pick up 2 locos I’d given to TMC at Peter...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

Hi Jim. Layout looking really good as usual (it's my favourite layout on the forum). The industrial north is an ideal setting for a layout. Gives a real working railway atmosphere, depicting what the majority of the 50s/60s railways did. Apologies as I seen to have been neglecting to visit Millsend ...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

SHHH...you'll wake the cat! :lol: Thanks for the progress pictures. I especially like the natural growth and grime. :) Can I ask RaliwayRobbo, what / where is your backscene from? Thanks End2end Hi End2end. Thanks for the comments. I think the backscenes are called ID backscenes and I got them from...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Here's the general view looking down the platform. IMG_1598.JPG If you look at the platform just after where the Station building finishes, you'll see an old lady getting some extra support. It's a little frame I constructed from card to give support to my figures when they are being glued. This old...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Well guys after a long period of inactivity I can proudly announce there has been some visual progress on PETERSDALE. After my epic battle with the Signal Box Interior Kit I was able to glue it in place, put the roof on the upper part of the box. Then glue it to the lower half, add the toilet and st...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Just spent a grey, wet afternoon completing my Signal Box interior. Oh boy did it bring home just how unsteady the old hands are getting. Trying to glue small parts with a surface area of less than a square millimetre is quite a challenge. Glad I was home alone, well me and the dog (he wasn't much h...

Re: GWR / LNER layout - station help needed

Hi Rusty. Progress on the layout is looking good. Nice backscene by the way. Never thought you'd find a free one on the net. Well done. I've had this little Peco booklet for more years than I'd like to confess to (at least 30+). In the back is a handy diagram with all the measurements regarding clea...

A few pictures of PETERSDALE with locos. IMG_1501 - Copy.JPG The shed yard is full. It must be Sunday and the locos are waiting for their Monday morning turns.

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

It's certainly an absorbing hobby that tends to make you look closely at things you never did before. There are things that I want to try, hence my like for small dioramas, or just test pieces. I have yet to do the ridges in a steep field where animals walk along the slope. Architecture was of no i...
