Re: Boats/Marina scene - 4mm scale

Perhaps you have checked this but had a look at ebay there are a number of small boats and other craft selling with BIN for under ten quid. Also some nice little canal barges also selling for under £8 by Craftline.

Re: Power connector between baseboards

Roger, The terminal block strip solution looks elegant inexpensive and simple. Will try and source some of these.

Re: Power connector between baseboards

I am looking for a solution to this problem too. For me soldering is something I don't want to have to do which maybe rules out the D connectors. I have found click connectors on Amazon but these are £5 each before shipping and I need 10 of them!! The choc blocks may be the way to go. I want easy di...

Re: Anyone Seen This......

Limited sources for buying them in N.I. Tried Sainsburys, Tescos and a couple of local newsagents to no avail. Asda eventually came up trumps though and I walked out with 5 copies. :D I think they look rather good and for the price I have no quams about putting a paintbrush to them to weather them u...

Re: Appleford Junction (name may change without warning!)

Looking forward to see this layout develop. Like you, I am working with minimal space to allow other usage in the roofspace. Keep up the good work.

Re: Metalfe Signal Box Interior

Hi Adi, thanks. My wife is bringing me home some plastic sheeting from work later to complete the glazing. I am also looking at solutions to complete the railings. I also need to find a figure to represent the signalman/woman. I only have a white metal figure that would suit at the moment but am not...

Re: Metalfe Signal Box Interior

I have almost completed my Airfix Oakham signal box. As the windows are so large it was gointo to be obvious to a blind man and his dog that there was a gaping big hole in the floor where the signal box acrutrements should be. I didn't want to spend money on the etched interior kits for all that you...

Re: Millburn Station 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Hi all,

Just thought I would make a small update to the layout. Having re-jigged the track plan this has now mostly been completed and I have uploaded a few pictures. No droppers have been put in place yet, this will be the next task.

Re: Where to start???

I came back to the model railway world at the beginning of this year with the Flying Scotsman set as a Christmas present. Since then I have been planning my layout. I took the approach of working out what space I had to work with and then making a list of what I would like to have. For me a double m...

Re: Millburn Station 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Taking Jons very good plan one step further I have come up with the following new plan. The measurements of the board are 4.25m x 60cm.

Re: Millburn Station 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Thanks for the comments Jon. I cannot profess to be any way knowledgeable on prototypical runnings of railways and have learnt something new today.. My simple thought was that the double slip would allow access to the main line without having to run along the platforms. Perhaps the latter would be m...

Re: Millburn Station 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Just thought I would give a small update on Millburn Station. All track has been layed right round the loft - this was completed 6 or 8 weeks ago. Since then there has been zero progress. I am a gardener by trade and this is my busy time so the modelling has taken a back seat. The weather has also b...

Re: Insulating Track Points

Thanks for responses. I have been stupid!! The Brian Lambert link looks like it is going to be essential reading before the wiring begins.

Insulating Track Points

Can someone please answer a question regarding insulating track points. I have laid all my track and am ready to wire for DCC. This is a first time DCC layout for me and I am uncertain as to where these insulated sections need to be. Am I being stupid to think that an Insulated joiner needs to be ap...
