Well if you are taking orders, a cable jumper, would be good.I.hope it works out. For me I get as much if not more enjoyment, building layouts, then buying shares in a wiring company. Bon Chance.john

My real enjoyment is building the layout and then adding bits. I very often 'play' for several hours and then realise I havenít run a single loco.

Thatís my problem now. I donít want to add any more so should I just run trains or start again. Think Iíll just run trains and buy more locos. Almost an addiction.

I got round mine by buying the Z gauge from this forum. 3 locos coaches and wagons. It’s taken days to put two ovals together., just to run them.Amazing little things,so quick,with lights as well. Having bought myMTH loco, am now actually playing trains,as this one does things I have never seen before. Not only that, itfuns on Dc as well with sound.john

Why not, Z gauge, had never entered my head, until i saw mine for sale. It fits on a coffee table. I have some 009 track, that i use for little n gauge, arnold/ lima locos. At our time of life, i dont see major change/ new 00 layout, makes a lot of sense, when you can diversify. Heather, who has no interest in trains, has really taken to the Z locos. john

Hi John
Keep the record straight - Brian is younger than me (just) and I'm not at anytime of life!!! I only feel as though I'm 30 (I think I can remember what 30 was like), the mirrors in this house lie
Toot sweet lol
