Re: My first fixed layout CHOLMONDELEY PARK.

Well, I can actually start writing updates on the thread now as last weekend I went to see my sister and as we were only about 30 miles from Liverpool we took a trip to Hattons where I purchased my points and double slip. Last night I started to lay my track and am probably 1/3 of the way done on th...

Re: Pedant County - 00 Gauge Garage Layout Updated 1/10/09

I didn't realise the LEDs were gonna be quite so bright - I'll have to make sure when I fit the panels they aren't aimed directly at my face or I won't be able to see a damn thing other than a dazzling blue glow lol. You could always install a large resistor in line from the power supply to make th...

Nice pics, although I think that the link to the Class 67 Fort William is in correct as it takes you to the same photo as the first link on the page.

Re: My first fixed layout CHOLMONDELEY PARK.

Overall, my impression is of a nicely relaxed plan, easy curves, a nice flow of trackwork :) The station area certainly has a nice prototypical feel to it. But two things don't quite ring true to me: Will the track that's at the very top of the plan be hidden by scenery or similar, or be at a highe...

Re: My first fixed layout.

Ok, so I know that this thread hasn't been updated for nearly a year now and thats down to lack of funds to continue with my layout. So due to the affore mentioned I felt the need to simplify my layout in order to make the track requirements cheaper. I will be using the same base boards as they are ...

Re: Printable track templates?

You could try the software package DRailEN, I use it to design my tracks, It has a built in hornby library, you can set it to a scale of 1:1 and print it off.

Hope this helps.

Re: Hornby 3 to 5 pole armature conversion

Instead of oil on the armature you need to use a nice thick grease, the type that you would use on car wheel bearings, obviously you don't want to put too much on but this is what I use and it works every time. Just one other thing, I have heard that converting a 3 pole ringfield into a 5 pole isn't...

Hornby 0-4-0 not starting from stopped?

Have any of you had problems with a new Hornby 0-4-0 loco/shunter, I have. I recieved my club model from Hornby this year and have been running it in occasionally when the mood takes me, but recently it has been trying to move but not going any where. The motor is making its little squeeling noise a...
