Re: The 2018 Competition - Voting is open (ends on the 8th!!)

I take it that not everybody made three choices in their voting? There were a total of 100 votes cast, and given that each person should have allocated 6 votes (3 for first, 2 for second, and 1 for third choice) that means that 16.66666666666666666666666666666666666667 people voted :D

Re: Powerful CDU

I have a similar set-up with multiple Peco point motors being fired at once, I have a Gaugemaster CDU with an additional capacitor (can't remember the value - will check tonight) soldered in parallel and fed by an 18V AC power source. Never had any issues with it failing to set the route,

Re: Derby Sulzer type 2, class 25/3 for OO

Surprised that D7612 is not included as this is a preserved example, would have snapped that one up as it was the loco that hauled me on my first trip to Fort William in 1966, and therefore would have been appropriate for my layout. Maybe a later issue.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Is it me or does that sit a little bit too high? Hi - The height of the bridge is set by the clearance over the track at the left of the second photograph (The Mavisbank to Gateside line). This has risen to 3" above the Northbridge line at this stage, so this branch needs to be a further 3&quo...

Do the mods not have a "PM to all" feature to encourage voting, it is a shame that a lot of hard work goes into these competitions then only 11 out of 8292 registered members bother to vote :x

Re: Waverley Station, Edinburgh

Princes Street had it's own depot which was at Dalry Road (Caledonian/LMS) https://www.railscot.co.uk/locations/D/Dalry_Road/ it was much smaller than the two LNER depots but was known to host Duchess and Princesses which would work up from Carstairs.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Tried the bridge in place tonight just to see how it will look, I had feared that it might look wrong, but I was encouraged by the general arrangement, so onwards and very much upwards! https://farm1.staticflickr.com/842/29328578138_ec4509e0a7_c.jpg https://farm1.staticflickr.com/917/43200025551_0ea...

Re: Waverley Station, Edinburgh

Just as a matter of interest was Haymarket the MPD for Waverley before 1968 or were there others? :? Haymarket (64B) was originally the depot for the express locos, there was also St Margaret's Depot (64A) to the East, it was closed in 1967. Originally the home of the freight and secondary working ...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

With thanks for posting pictures of your layout, always a joy to see. Pity you don't have the layout in a large shed, would be a bit cooler for you. No plans to move it suppose ? :0) Hi Buggleskelly - I actually have plans to get a new wooden shed built sometime this year, the current metal one we ...

Re: newbe

Hi - Welcome to the forum. I would endorse Bigmet's comment about good old fashioned paper a pencil, not a big fan of the planning software myself.

Good luck with your project when it gets underway.
