Update

Postby Bufflers Halt » Wed Aug 09, 2006 8:38 pm

Evening all just a quick update on my garden railway after much sun and rain on the track i felt it was time for some repairs and cleaning so after a lot of elbow grease i got the track back up to spec and now the trains are running smooth.
Here's some pics from today.

No still the same although i would like a second loop so i can have 2 trains running but am unsure as to how to get it as space is a bit tight unless i try using flexi track to make the curve more fluid.

wow that's nice :^)

I can't believe you used set track for all of that. I've never used set track. Mainly because most toy shops stock flexi track over here. Set track is harder to come by (and much more expensive), except in a train set. I just thought flexi track was normal.

With using set track he'll get a nice 'Click-a-d-click' when the trains are running ;).

Following on from an article in Model Rail i'm going to change my rolling stock's plastic wheels for metal to add even more clickety.

This weekend saw my shed transformed more into my train workshop after getting some shelves put up for rolling stock to be layed up and a smaller one for me to leave stock or coaches that need repair so don't loose track of what needs fixing etc.

Maybe it's just in the model shops (and toy shops) where I live but it's just as easy (if not easier) to buy set track than flexi track.

Metal wheels are so much better than plastic :)

Any pics of your "workshop"?
