Re: Newbie to the fold

Hi Lickleyjunction

I'm delighted to see a garage being used correctly !!
It's all about enjoying life & having fun. With a young family
you can't be too fussy about accuracy .... until later !

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Ahh Dave,

I've always said you can NEVER have too many 16 ton steel minerals.
Although I've reached the level that I DO have too many wagons here,
but as to cutting back ? Why ? I can still find the odd corner for a few
more.

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Quite a long time since I posted. The basic reason is the shortage of Bachmann short narrow tension-lock couplings with their NEM pockets. First I thought I'd add a picture of that Parkside LMS brake van with decals on. https://i.ibb.co/xskvGHW/IMG-3958.jpg Another task has been trying to catch up o...

Re: Prodigy faulty again

When a controller is switched off many open up with 03 as the starting point. All you do then is enter the loco number you require to drive and after pressing a confirm button you automatically have control of the now dialled in number. When a layout has several locomotives on track and 'live' it is...

Re: Tank loco motor wizzing no traction.

O.K gents, I've not even looked to see exactly what locomotive this is. However look at the facts :- Motor working fine Not moving, pointing to a failure in the drive. Only reasons for failure to drive when the motor is running well Is the uncoupling of motor from motion. Either split or damaged dri...

Re: Another Triang Clerestory conversion

superb workmanship.
Wish I had the inspiration and drive to do something like this.
I've inherited quite a few Triang coaches, but it's not freight.

Re: Green Frog Brewery - A Inglenook Shunting Layout

This shunting layout is sort of finished, but there are always little items that you come across that will perhaps enhance some scene. A contact of mine is making a Kent Hops scene shunting layout and found that hops are packed into Hop Pockets, nope, not sacks ! Then another pointed him to anyscale...

Re: Peco PL13 Polarity Switches

I agree with peterm, My use of the small sliding Peco switches has been nothing short of a disaster. Something like 28 on my large Castell Mawr layout. Certainly these shouldn't be tight, but slide VERY easily when not attached to the point motor pin. If they only become tight on already mounted poi...

Re: (Will it be a) Happy New Year?

2021 WILL be better ........I hope. As a club chairman I am looking at 2021 as being our first year without our larger exhibitions. Obviously the January one is impossible, and July on School premises ? No way will that happen. However we do have a small hall that costs us under £100 for the full da...

Perhaps we need a thread for suppliers of Knick-Knacks ?

I've placed this in 'Scenery' because that's what we use all these little bits & pieces for. However the information soon gets lost through the years. Sone suppliers don't last, but perhaps we can cover that. Certainly not for the Models Shop Thread, that's far to general. O.K I've lost my Mojo,...
