Re: Just starting in this Forum

Thanks Glencairn, that's a good point!

I had already thought that the underside of the duck under needed to be boxed in with a removable cover to prevent damage to any wiring on the underside, but now I will provide for the cover to be padded.

Yes, think we all have been there, but that's no surprise when we are trying to do tricks such as compress a mile of railway into a scale 1500ft.
