Re: First Avenue - Modern OO Freightliner - Now with sound

Thanks for the pics Ron. Very useful for some of the smaller details I will want to add later. I have a spare phone box, so will be painting it red for Maritime. I had thought about including the 2 main lines originally but it would have made the board too wide for where I work on it and storage. I ...

Re: First Avenue - Modern OO Freightliner - Now with sound

Today I have had all of my modern stock out of the loft and given them a run in on a simple loop. The problem with building layouts for so long is that your locos end up just sitting there gathering dust. Once they were all running again I couldn't resist putting them onto First Avenue to make a qui...

Re: First Avenue - Modern OO Freightliner - 8ft x 2ft

No need to apologise Al, I appreciate your comments and advice. I have seen some fine filler at Toolstation, so may give that a try. Good news on the sound front. CoastalDCC posted the speaker next day. Speaker replaced, part of the chassis around the motor cut off to allow the decoder to fit in, fr...

Waton coming to DEMU? Well that's made my mind up - I will definitely be there!
Looking forward to seeing this in the flesh.

Re: First Avenue - Modern OO Freightliner - 8ft x 2ft

As it was my birthday last week and my family all gave me money, I decided to take the plunge and treat myself to a sound decoder! I managed to pick up one off ebay for my hornby 08 for a bargain price of £67. Tonight I have had a little play by removing the chassis and plugging it straight in and I...

Re: First Avenue - Modern OO Freightliner - 8ft x 2ft

A few pics of my latest progress: Test board to experiment with creating the concrete areas by using filler. I am quite happy with the results and have now sent the board to my brother for painting and weathering before I start on the actual layout http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y18/daverandle/666...

Re: First Avenue - Modern OO Freightliner - 8ft x 2ft

Hi Geoff I'm still here! I have spent the last few weeks working on a few bits, but nothing worth posting updates for. The main job has been the construction of the scalescenes concrete bridge. This seems to be taking me forever and is still work in progress. I have started ballasting the 2nd board,...

Re: Hood-dale Main - My Loft Layout OO

Passed by The Works in Derby today and remembered your post, so popped in and got the last circle cutter off the shelf. Bargain at just £1.99, so many thanks for the tip.

Re: Hood-dale Main - My Loft Layout OO

Now that looks a nifty little tool. Those arches look very neat.
Must tell the mrs to look out for one of those in the Works next time.
Looking good!

Re: First Avenue - Modern OO Freightliner - 8ft x 2ft

Spent some time ballasting the remaining line last night. I have started work on the fencing that separates the depot from this line and added soil & grass to this area too. Never done any scenery before so had to guess how to do it! In the end I did it like ballast and it turned out ok. http://...

Re: Hood-dale Main - My Loft Layout OO

Great storage! If I ever get back in the loft to finish Chadwood then I might just consider doing that with mine.

Re: Wolford - Desicion time

Hi Kevin It seems a real shame to rip up all of the great work you have done so far on Wolford. Having said that, I know how you feel because I changed my Chadwood layout several times during the build and even now I still wish I had done some things differently so may end up changing them one day. ...
