Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Evening lads. Another new loco joins the fleet... I've had my eye on one of these for a while, I suppose mainly for nostalgia purposes as I had one years ago. A Lima Class 59 in National Power livery! I got it off the bay, DCC fitted, so that has saved me a job! Have just given it a quick run and it...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Hi Scott, yes from what I've read the CMX sounds like the best track cleaner around. I've tried one of the Dapol ones and it didnt really do much for me... A couple of years back I had a model shop (how time flies), and when I closed I was left with all of this unsold catenary... so I figured I'd us...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Me again! Having a really tough couple of weeks in work at the moment, but on the plus side I'm doing plenty of overtime... cash in hand... So to cheer myself up today I thought I would take a jolly to the model shop and see if anything took my fancy.... and as usual, it did. :D You know me, I cant ...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Evening all. Some serious work going on in the strogaloft today! A good friend has been round to help me fit my lighting up in the loft, and its coming along very nicely... He made the mistake of saying he enjoyed doing it, so now I'm going to rope him in to help me do my backscenes next! :lol: http...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Thanks Poindexter... yes I'm well pleased with the 47. :D Well today has been frustrating... went for a jolly to B&Q earlier, to spend my Xmas voucher. While I was there, I spotted these 'link and light' fluorescent tube lights that looked perfect for the loft. Got them home, one didnt work, so ...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Evening chaps. Nothing major has been happening on the layout over the last month, have had a few good running sessions though! The other day I found some plastic billboards, so today I decided to put some of my favourite 80's movie posters on them! (Apologies for the grainy photos) Commando http://...

Re: Hornby 2012

Very pleased to hear about the GWR tanks. Will definately be getting a 52xx, as it was the loco we had for my wedding a few months ago! Hope they release it as 5239 'Goliath' :)

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Afternoon gents. Well since my last post, I've had a good few running sessions. So the running problems seem to have sorted themselves out for now... I think it must have been down to the coldness on that particular weekend. Anyway, this week I've splashed out on a Hornby HST in BR blue/grey livery....

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Evening chaps. Really hacked off with the layout at the minute. I went and got a replacement for the Class 25 last weekend, got around to running it in and chipping it yesterday. On initial testing in the loft, it ran really well, much quieter and more responsive than the first one. Then I decided t...

Was sorry to hear of the demise of Shaftesbury. Your previous layouts were superbly detailed in OO, so I have high hopes for this O gauge project ! :wink:

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Hi guys.

thebritfarmer, yes I have also tried a Bachmann decoder in the 25 to no avail. (The one that was taken out of the 47).

Basically I've tried 3 decoders in the 25, all with the same results.

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Hi guys. I'm having a rather frustrating day with the ol' trains. Yesterday I got a Hornby Sapphire Decoder to go in the Bachmann Class 25 as I had taken out the 8 pin + adapter arrangement.... I was disapointed to see that it is still very noisy, jerky, and just a bit crazy. A couple of times durin...

Re: The Strogaloft - Construction Begins... Again!

Hi thebritfarmer

I am fancying some of the new mk2's, I could mix a few in with my blue/grey rake.

In the photos the 47 is hauling a single Replica MK1 coach, because the MK2's werent playing ball. :x
