Re: inserting lighting in buildings

I just want to have a small glow really, not illuminate the inside as there is not a lot to see, except the shed which could on occasions have a couple of locos. I have soft glow white LED's which are 12v so the 1st inch of wire from the bulb is stiff with the built in resistor

inserting lighting in buildings

I have got a supply of LEDs to light up some buildings. They have about a 9" tail which needs about 2" below the baseboard. So that they don't move is it ok to use something like duct tape to attach them to the internal structure. I have thought about glueing matches or cocktail sticks upr...

Re: Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg

We were thinking of going in September, outside of holiday period so the crowds would be less. I agree booking in advance seems to be sensible

Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg

Has anyone been. We are thinking of going this year by train as I don't fly. We would like information on places to stay that don't cost the earth. SHMBO won't want to cook, so B & B would be best

Which make of lighting

Before I invest in lamp posts I just thought I would ask which make most people use. The only criteria is that they MUST be LEDs, also not too dear

Re: Building model railway books.

Try to get to some exhibitions, where you not only see what is possible but can also talk to the builders. I found if I was a good listener I would go home with some great ideas. Also you can see a lot of stuff to decorate the layout and talk to the suppliers who often have demos to show how it work...

Re: gwr coaches

Thanks for the information. My uncle was a driver and the last picture before retirement in 1961 shows him in charge of 5008 Raglan Castle, so I have chosen that in memory of him ( renamed and renumbered by me from Hornby Hampden Castle). I just needed to get the best looking coaches as the Lima MK1...

Re: Trees,bushes scrub etc

Discovered in the garden centres this Christmas my wife used the plastic imitation cut sprigs. Just cutting off the ends make passable small trees and shrubs. They look good in the model gardens and don't shed They come in various colours and are cheap.

coach destination boards query

I am assembling a Cornish Riviera set and want to add the boards to the coaches. I have tried Google images but cannot find the answer. What I need to know is when I attach the boards which comes first on the coach, the name of the train or the names of the stations. I realise that on the return jou...
