Chrisalddin's, 1979 - 2006. the Karana line. update 20/12/06

Postby chrisalddin » Thu Dec 07, 2006 12:39 pm

My layout is now going to be know as the Karana line.

in my mind this line tack up like 20ft x 15ft. but i dont have room for that so a samll 6ft 2in x 4ft will do.

the plan is to have a lop of track 2 sitision, a turntabel. and some sideding
with a samll space next to the layout that i can add a yead to at a later date.

at this point i dont know if i will need a optrater hole. as the layout will be in the corner of the room.

there is plan for a high part of the track. as well.

the i set it in the time fram of 1979 -2006 is that this is the time i been in this world...

if it ran with in this time it can go on my layout...
anay steem train uese will be there as trian that have been resoted!

later today after i eat. i will go and start puting some track down to see how it will look. going to fix it just yet...

befor i start atall i will get some pic's for you of the befor i start so you can see the room what i got to work with and so on.

the plan it SET..

*adveart*
the Karana line a line that evey one should travel on at least one time in there life.
after you traved on the line. it will stay with you as somethink you will look back on with happy in your mind.
you willo get to speed time in some of the lovely towns a long the line one of wich can only be got to by train.

come travel today!

yes i plan to uese the coach on my DCC but not the loco.
1st it power from the tender. and a pickup on the main loco
a pic of metel snaped off.
so it can go around a loop to the laft but not o the right!.
orso dont plan on making it DCC

Hi Chris my merchant navy loco is loco driven and has pickups on loco and i think the tender and is DCC ready just needs a decoder plugging in,i only have two locos that DCC ready so they will be the first to be chipped next year.

Plus i'm not gonna bother with the Hornby DCC set and just buy the Lenz set 100 instead when i have the money next year which i hope will be February.

I didn't getting anything with mine to say it was DCC ready or find anything on the INTERNET shops to say either or anywhere else for that matter,and i got mine April last year and mine stopped when trying to go up the incline but i found it to be the drive gear had come off the axle but i also had the loco apart and thats when i found it tobe DCC ready.

Good news. Amazing a the space a quick clearout can create. Now you can start sketching any plans on the board itself 1:1 scale. In fact, I'm surprised you didn't get the track out already :wink:

Best of luck mate. Keep us up to date with the new developments

Cheers
