Re: Walthers Blast Furnace kit - for Bilston steel works

I think W...

Re: Roller Shutter Doors

Hi dan8400
Once the door hole is cut and framed.
I would think"N" scale textured card or plastic corrugated iron sheet set up, with horizontal corrugations and painted to
match the frame would produce a reasonable facsimile for a roller door.

Conversion parts for Hornby customers where fitted in the factory free of charge (that would not...

Re: my first attempt at a permanent board

Hi jay123 Plenty of track feed droppers is a very good thing. Not sure I agree with soldering the rail joint's (Or have I read it wrong), that will make it a PITA to add to and alter to improve the track layout. Even in the adult world these things are prone to change extension and improvement until...

Re: Tonglington Vale - 4ft by 4ft?

Hi Alex Don't loose heart. If you still have good points I would still connect the loops together and try and have some operational interest in the layout. I actually meant the and I use the term loosely "modern Triang" station buildings the ones with flat roofs red walls and white windows...

Re: The MSLR in OO scale

Hi all Well I made up my mind and went with this. Now tell me you don't have room for a second station for passengers :lol: Though calling it a station is well and truly over stating things I think :shock: DSC00198 copy.jpg It's the closest I can get without scratch building.

Hi THE CHIEF Is There enough room in the void space for a couple of employees cottages. If so that explains where the workers came from.

Re: N Gauge Island Railway RIVET COUNTERS BEWARE

My thoughts are you need to set up a control center off the layout area. Where the controller is sitting looks a nice spot for a pier side for seaborne arriv...
