Didingtonn - OO Gauge Layout by Lmsrail

Postby lmsrail » Thu Mar 12, 2009 4:54 pm

Hi, the baseboard is up for my new layout Didingtonn. It's going to be OO gauge and going to be much much bigger than my previous layouts. Pics will hopefully be up soon!

Are you going to put the track straight down on the boards or raise the track bed.

Seriously good work LMS. Nice to see your motivated again. Sure this will be a great layout!

What track system are you planning to use ? Hornby or PECO ?

Hey, long time since my last update. I now have the shed sidings pinned down.
Now I have the mssive task of getting power to all parts of the layout. Lots of soldering to do!

OK, all over the layout i want to have lights etc. Should i just add a resistor and attatch it straight to the track power?
Kind regards, Jed
