Re: Michaela’s workbench, building buildings

yes that area, plus the ELR, is my main inspiration for buildings, not sure why, just like the look of them, and layouts full of them here's where I'm up to now, with sore fingers just a test fit before I finish painting and put all the windows in https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7896/47438688171_c3ec...

Re: overly complicated point work in old photos

another example this one from lincoln central, can't find a clear real life shot, but this modeled example appears to be accurate, why is that crossing needed? https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/monthly_09_2010/post-4624-091620500%201284653073.jpg https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/...

overly complicated point work in old photos

was wondering if anyone could give me an answer or reason for this, I've noticed in a lot of old photos and layouts that accurately replicate a prototype there are a lot of points where I just can't work out their reason for being there, at first I thought maybe the avoidance of facing points, but t...

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

We certainly didn't anticipate such a problem, the first post programme posting wasn't until 02:06 if that can be relied on. I'm glad you folk are less volatile, - or just too tired, 02:06? It beats my latest posting by at least an hour, and from the comments about it's unavailability beyond our sh...

I have never managed to achieve working semaphores, All my semaphores were Ratio kits, I would think that a simp... the semaphores on your layout look really good, and I assumed they worked, I probably wouldn't have been bothered but getting one dapol semaphore and seeing it working makes me want t...

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

was anyone else confused about that "professional" layout? are the builders limited to only using hornby products for those? or was its purpose to look like the kind of thing literally anyone can build? and more specifically why were they using a massive screwdriver to apply that awful loo...

00 gauge semaphores, whats best?

on my layout I'd like working semaphore signals, however I'm unsure which route to take here, so who's worked with what and whats best? I currently have a dapol LMS home and a decoder unit for it, however the cost of kitting my whole layout with these would be insane, not to mention the lack of vari...

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

episode 2 has left me with some interesting feelings regarding Hornby, I mean obviously its a business and they have to fight for their market share, but is it the best idea to directly compete with 2 of their biggest retailers like that? when the retailers themselves said they only got into manufac...

Re: Do the increasing prices of model railways effect how much you spend?

so I put yes to this, even though I only really buy stuff when they're on offer or bargain packs or similar, the reason being though, in the past I'd always put off buying stuff because I'd seen it cheaper in offers before and I'd be waiting for the offers to return, but they never did return and th...
