Finally going to build a layout!

Well it's been 3 years and a house move since I first started planning a railway layout, but finally I'm going to start one in N gauge. It was a visit to the railway exhibition in Norwich in April that finally gave me the shove to get on with one after seeing how little space was needed for a decent...

Re: 20 lights for a £

Or a load of chavs in pimped cars with those horrible blue glowing lights underneath.

Re: Width of OO gauge road dual carriageway?

Thanks for all the comments. Hi Chris The width looks great but if you dont mind a little feedback the markings look wrong.

Re: Width of OO gauge road dual carriageway?

Here are a few photos of a road diorama I have been working on. Each lane is 60mm wide, with a 35mm verge (10mm tarmac, 25mm concrete) and 25mm central reservation. You can judge for yourself from these if the dimensions look right. The HGV's are 1/76 Oxford Diecast & EFE, the cars 1/72 Hongwell...

Re: Modern images EWS

A friend of mine used cork floor tiles from B&Q so it was cheaper. Cork absorbs the sound better than placing the track straight on wood.

Re: Loco repaint - Striping and spraying step by step.

I applied the decals straight onto the Railmatch paint when I repainted my 57, but would recommend sealing the decals with varnish afterwards. The type you need will depend on the paint you use (don't mix acrylic with enamel and vice versa - always varnish acrylic with acrylic and enamel with enamel...

Re: T(iny) Scale

Give it 6 months they'll have developed a full layout small enough to fit on the back of a postage stamp, lights included. :P

Re: Loco repaint - Striping and spraying step by step.

Hi Dave Great article. I've recently done a repaint and can also advise Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner is very effective at removing the paint too. Cover the the loco body with the cleaner in a plastic or baking tray and leave for a couple of hours. This should remove the majority of the paint, then any rem...

This is also when the pendo's are taken off electrified lines across Wales. The voyagers are often towed on training duties.
