Re: The 00 6'x4' trackplans thread

Yeah, the upper two thirds consists of a small oval circuit. http://imageshack.us/a/img269/7700/sp12modified.jpg This is a modification of plan SP12 from Cyril J Freezer's "60 Plans for Small Spaces". "Small Spaces". Heh. Anyway, this was 8'x4' and shortened to 6'x4' (or just a ...

Re: The 00 6'x4' trackplans thread

I may be missing the obvious, but does it have a continous loop?

I would find one for times when you want to sit back and watch the trains go by as a good investment.

Re: Comments welcome on OO gauge layout

There's a loop under the sidings so trains can be run from the terminus and back again, if I'm feeling lazy, and (I think) enough connections and turnouts for all sorts of interesting shunting to and from the terminus when I have more vigour. Looks a well thought out and interesting layout. Is ther...

Re: Simple Town; a 4'x2' foray into N Guage

Hi NEvans I would paint the base in some sort of earthy tone whether its a brown or green. May I suggest moving the passenger platform to the other side of the passing loop, thus freeing up the main line for traffic while the passenger train is stopped in the station. And if you can take the passin...

Re: London SW Model Shops + Home Counties

Addlestone is quite good and usually 20% off cat price for engines, everything else is full price. If you want anything in particular would recommend giving them a call first. I'm sure they will order anything not in stock.

Re: Model Railway shops in Central London / Westminster

For many years (don't now) worked on Dury Lane round the corner from Modelzone and it was always very well stocked and helpful staff, be a shame if they are going downhill. I never found anything else in central London that was related and/or of any use.

Best type of paint to use on cork?

Very basic question, going to put a layer of base paint over the cork, what is the best stuff for the job?

Thanks

Re: Simple Town; a 4'x2' foray into N Guage

So what shall I call this? Not really based on any station or area, how's about naming it after my nickname at school, never worked out why they called me a village though? Image above shows two weeks of playing with the track I have, with more might be able to fit a hidden siding on the back straig...

Simple Town; a 4'x2' foray into N Guage

Given up trying to pack the children off to uni, agree with boss to build a new extension, or clear the garage or loft out (how can you get so much stuff into them? And where did it all come from?). Decided on a small n gauge just so I could run things, last one was a OO Inglenook, no scenery whatso...

Re: Is this the Best Farish Model Ever?

Difficult to tell from a photo,. . . . . especially one of an OO/4mm scale model. :? I agree, I don't like the amount of OO pics there are in the Farish catalog, I'm sure there must be pre-production pictures available somewhere. Hopefully be good, and like weathered machines. Hope over time more o...

Re: Upgrade & redesign to 9'x6'

The original one looks good, is that based on a trackplan?
