Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Dec 24th saw a start to testing the Clackwick layout following completion of recovery work on numerous lengths of track. The following morning it was clear that Santa had brought more than the usual range of presents, but nothing whatever appropriate to my layout. However, one large package containe...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Ten days on and I'm still struggling on the underside of the layout. Having wired in a number of extra feeds on the larger (station) side, I thought the remainder was just a formality - but I had overlooked the raised embankment that covers four metres down the south side, and which effectively left...

Very nice Jim; a pleasure to watch. Clackwick still "in maintenance", but I see distant light.

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Had the rest of the panels off today, and spent another couple of hours locating the rest of the track connections (the masking tape stickers): Track Supply 5 1024 x 768.jpg Track Supply 4 1024 x 768.jpg Track Supply 3 1024 x 768.jpg I'm hoping that the addition supply feeds at two more point sets a...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Thanks Jim. I plan to remove the remaining two side panels this morning, then complete the "northside" survey and carry out whatever rectification needs doing. With the panels out of the way, it also provides the opportunity for me to give the area a good clean (it's certainly due one afte...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Made a start today on looking into the track problems I experienced before visitors arrived last week. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had installed the layout side panels (back in 2005) with some degree of foresight, and within ten minutes of starting I had access to the underside of the ...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Well, here's hoping its not the end. Hopefully a good clean will keep things on track.. so to speak. As said has done 13 years, surely a good clean will do another 13? I fear that the condition is beyond being recovered with a good clean joshv8. The degree of "flouring" at the joiners is ...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Thank you for your complimentary remarks guys, and good luck to you "down under" in your quest to source an alternative to seafoam. Having been a country-boy in former years, I am sure that something could be found among your own wealth of wild plants. Unfortunately, I have to report a clo...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

I do believe that sea grass is a natural plant, as it's very name implies. If this presents a problem re importation to Oz, you might well find an alternative plant in your own natural environment that you could usefully trial. The important thing, it seems to me, is that the plant must be fully dri...

Easier than you would imagine joshv8: Get a box of this (you might get it cheaper elsewhere as Sea Grass) Trees 1 1024 x 768.jpg Trim your piece to suit (with care, very fragile). Spray with this (English version): Trees 2 1024 x 768.jpg Mix some of this (foilage scatter) to suit your colour(s), and...
