Finished off wiring up and connected the new Morley Vector controller. Gave me an excuse to try out the two Xmas presents that had never been out the box. Must say I was very impressed by the slow speed control of this unit, these two crawled nicely before posing on the turntable.

Hi all, tonight I placed the Buildings temporarily in place to check clearances. The rear of the shed will be hidden behind the backscene for reasons best revealed when the full layout develops. All of the buildings have been salvaged from the old Gateside Depot.

Surprizing what can be done in a small space. You have put a lot of thought into that idea! It looks good.

Hi all, As you know my wife is a great one for car boot sales and antique fairs/shops, normally I am not interested but occasionally a gem emerges. I had been looking at motorising the turntable but the Peco kit and the alternative options on Ebay were pricy, even the manual one on Ebay was £25. So when I spotted this Mecanno set for the princely sum of £3, I could not pass it up.

I have subsequently assembled this contraption under the board which works not too bad!

Also at Garrion Bridge Antiques centre I picked up a nice Hornby Dublo Crane for £25

Glad that Meccano works for you Jim, I could never get anything to work as a kid!

Hi Ex Pat, was never good a Mecanno as a kid myself, I had a No4 set but rarely built anything, I was more of a Lego man myself.
