Re: London loft build

Indeed manna it is tight getting into the middle section. In previous versions of the layout (same board setup) the corners were a little tight. However I will explain this as a slow junction. Flyover isn't a bad idea - not sure I can be @rsed to build it though. I'd take the run up from the longer ...

Re: London loft build

I went to an event organised by http://bit.ly/2iXoWpd at Finmere and there was the 20' sea container which opened out into a static museum thing and then there was a bus, tube, train all mashed together. Must have been some sort of promo idea from the time. Went to my local model shop today http://b...

Re: London loft build

Zero activity on either. Lack of bits due to finds being spent on summer holidays etc. Anyway yesterday I went to the Network SouthEast Railway Society thing at Finmere Station. Its not a public site and the station is now just a platform that they have rebuilt on site of the original station. It wa...

Re: London loft build

Wow thanks for your reply Bufferstop. I also have a couple of Hornby 110 units - 1980's vintage. So I may be following your experience with that one! Have now constructed a small 4' x 2' baseboard with a back scene plank thing. Took me about an hour to build using the ply top & CSL sections as t...

Re: London loft build

Hey Bufferstop - did you have to do much modifications to older stock? Back to back or depth adjustments/re-wheeling? I am considering building a small test rig to see how my older (20 years+) stock runs. Am assuming (we know what assumption is...) that my newer stock will be fine...!!

Re: London loft build

Well - sort of. The cork covering is ongoing. It feels never ending: http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd289/lozstlouis/24082595-C648-4E7A-9DF3-03E28855DA83_zpseeyckhmy.jpg http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd289/lozstlouis/BA3CF5CC-17CA-40A0-ADCD-F33F697C92A4_zpskhnqbvhq.jpg Although the end is i...

Re: UNDERLAY

Laying all of it (cork or whatever) on a layout is a ballache & almost as dull as ballasting. In my opinion anyway.

Re: London loft build

Slow progress but the 'corking' continues around the layout. You can hardly see the joins!! http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd289/lozstlouis/AE3216CC-8D19-48F3-8D5D-EC3808F9A34C_zpsqsna2zcy.jpg Whizzed up to the Biggleswade show last weekend.
