Re: windsor bridge and pendleton 1982

Hi there - Looks a really good concept, best of luck with progress, I look forward to seeing it develop. I am a great fan on Colin Giffords photography of the North West and this layout could show a flavour of that photography.

Re: It is rumoured..

Many years ago Railway Modeller featured an underground layout, running beneath the floorboards with viewing windows strategically place. Can't remember which year but it was in the April issue . Never let anyone tell you CJF didn't have a sense of humour. John W aka Bufferstop Blimey your going ba...

Re: marklin going bust?

I think news of their demise is a little premature, according to the Marklin Users.net site, another German Toy Company, Simba-Dickie is to takeover Marklin. including the Trix and LGB brands Lifted from that site...

Re: Easiest point motors for beginner?

Thansk BigMet - unfortunately the points are already in place and ballasted, was hoping for a quick fix with minimum upheaval. Will try some experimentation.

Cheers

Re: Recommend Paper/Card Weights

I use Daler-Rowney mounting board, it is about 1.4mm thick and at around £3-4 for an A1 sheet is quite economic. For thinner applications I use Cereal Boxes.

Re: Easiest point motors for beginner?

I am thinking of retrofitting a couple of manually operated Peco points at Gateside with the Bicycle Wheel Spoke method. I was thinking of cutting a slot at the side of the point for the rod to come up, but am stumped by how to attach the rod to the end of the tie rod, anyone got any ideas?

Re: First Small Layout in 00 Gauge- Help Needed Please

Sounds like an Inglenook Layout would be a good idea, looks of operating interest solving the puzzles too. See http://www.wymann.info/ShuntingPuzzles/ for inspiration.

Re: 9 x 4 00 Branch Line Terminus

Regarding the width of boards, just remember when building to complete the work at the back before doing any scenic work at the front, this minimises any chance of damage

Re: Point motor help. Peco or Hornby?

I take it you are referring to the Hornby R8014 Point Motor, if you are then the Peco PL-10E is virtually identical, just remember to bend down the two central lugs that are desiged to fit N and 009 points. As far as performance is concened I have never used the Hornby motor so I cannot comment on t...

You seem to have planned the whole operation superbly, what system is that you are using for your points? Really like this layout, please post some more photographs. ...
