Re: Troysdale Wagon & Loco works

Cheers Michael,
I used the "under-track" Kadee magnets and used them full size,, I think their a big improvement on the "above-track" ones not just for looks but the fact they are much wider which makes them work better in my opinion.

Cheers

Sorry Santene, I should have said those bases are pieces of ply I have glued to their feet to stand them so I can paint them :oops: :oops: , They will just pull-off when I want to permanently glue the figures down.

Re: Troysdale Wagon & Loco works

Hi Terry, the name's because my 12 year old son is called Troy ( it was a rare name back then). the first layout we started together was given the Troysdale name, and as we have not yet ever finished a layout, the name still carries on.My 2 year-old daughters called Grace so I suspect another layout...
