Thats ok mate were here to answer question you have got.

On the inner loop on the lower level of my layout that will only be used by small locos and rolling stock that can run on them everywhere else will be 2nd and 3rd radius and flexi track.

I am ordering a box of peco code 100 streamline flexi track tomorrow and i am getting some free seep points from a member on another forum as he has no need for them,as he has built a new layout with a thicker baseboard and to how many i will get i won't know till i get them.Which i hope is soon like tomorrow.

I would have thought you could extend the pin like you can with peco point motors?

When he used them on his old layout the pins where cut to length and now he's built a new layout i don't think he wanted to extend them so he was giving them away for free to a good home.But seep points motors a long pin to start of when new but then they are cut to length so they don't poke through the track and catch the trains,when in place under the baseboard.

Well my seep point motors arrived this morning from a very good friend from another forum and i have 35 seep point motors that i got for free, and i am very grateful to him for letting me have them for free.

I am just waiting for my track to arrive from hattons which i ordered saturday and i am still waiting for that email to say they have been packed and posted which i still haven't recieved yet.Plus my book hasn't come either from play.com.

I have just found out that all 35 seep point motors are the ones with the switch so i can now do a point indication panel so i know which direction the point are in.Just need a CDU some more switches,also some more wire to wire it all up and i can do the point indication panel at a later date when i have more money to do one.

Give them a call on the phone.

They can't ignore a direct conversation. Emails they can ignore..

Hattons are a great supplier, but you have to keep on top of them, I think they are very busy and things just slip, but you always get your stuff in the end, and they're nice to deal with on the phone.
