My next N gauge layout!

Although technically still in the planning stage I am going to go ahead with this so may as well start a thread for it! I have gone through a couple of plans and have come up with this current version that I am quite happy with :mrgreen: This is a revised version of a set track layout that is in the...

Re: Few questions regarding ballasting?

ASFC - do i need to add anything else to the water, like a small drop of washing up liquid, or does that not matter? Nope, just water. As you have already realised it isn't a quick job and new fishplates will be needed. Add a drop of washing up liquid,not so much as to make loads of suds though :D ...

Re: Few questions regarding ballasting?

When I lifted some of my track I was in haste and did damage it but if you are REALLY careful it should be possible to lift it. I have found that despite the fact I soaked some of the ballasted areas so much with PVA I thought the track would never come off it did in fact come off quite easily and t...

Re: My N gauge layout

Bit more work in the last few days. Laid a floor for the depot area,used the same stuff that makes up the retaining wall at the back :wink: Painted it grey and gave it a wash of black to make it look oily and dirty,also grassed in between the tracks in a couple of places as well. The engine shed tur...

Re: Minimum Radius Curves

Hi, Does anyone have any idea if a Dapol class 66 loco(N gauge) is okay with R1 setrack curves. Thanks Martin Yes and no! I had a Dapol class 66 that would go round them but made a right racket when it did :shock: The loco was noisy as it was but going round R1 curves it was a lot worse.

Re: My N gauge layout

There has been another state of demolition today :D Ripped up the two sidings to create an area of hard standing where the engine shed will go. Also wired up the new yard light and one of the new lights for the sidings. The white lights are so much better than the yellow ones they replaced. Need to ...

Re: Dapol Class 66 Running Qualities

The Dapol EWS 66 I had was awful :shock: It might have been sat in the shop for a while but it would barely move when I got it and no matter how much I ran it over time it never seemed to loosen up enough to be a really good runner. Also it didn't like my 9" radius corners,it stayed on the trac...

Re: My N gauge layout

Right,a bit of progress :D In a fit of destruction that I quite enjoyed ( :shock: ) I have ripped out most of the "old" lights. I have managed to bend most of them in the past so they were not quite vertical anymore :oops: There is now a bit of a platform that also meant removing some of t...
