O Gauge Micro Layout and PDF's svailable

Postby jimread » Thu Mar 22, 2018 2:33 pm

Hello all,

Recently I converted my O Gauge micro layout to a rural terminus, based on running practises on the Bishops Castle Railway and on Canterbury Road Station on the East Kent Railway.

Here's a little video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TtpHJpefRQ
The loco is made from card including the chassis
Ditto the wagons, track is card sleepers and copper clad strips for the points

I have done PDF's on making a loco and wagons from card and making the controller tat powers the loco in the vid
If you would like the PDF's please send me a nice message with your email adress.

Cheers

I'm looking on the phpBB forum to find the code to embed the video, not much luck yet :-)
Does anyone know how to do this, I would be grateful for any information
I try to make as much as I can myself'

Simplicity, but wonderful to view. It is like you are trainspotting in a yard.

You've already done the first step thats posting the URL of the video. I don't know if You Tube supplies one but what you need now is a thumbnail from the video inserted into the URL in the same way that you can insert your own text. I found an article on doing it here. I haven't had chance to play around with it yet.

From the link provided by Bufferstop

The format for the url is img.youtube.com/vi/ <youtube video id> / <default/0/1/2/3> .jpg
(I've removed the https:// from the example to stop it being parsed as a link)

You can also use i3.ytimg.com instead of img.youtube.com

For the video above you get:

The loco and stock being made from cardboard is interesting. It certainly keeps costs down.
I like the idea of making a layout where everything on there has been made yourself. It is a concept that I'm slowly building up.... Though I'm using 7mm narrow gauge instead.
Glad to watch your layout on the links you gave. Thanks. :)
Enjoying 7mm narrow gauge.
