I saw that someone was offering one-way tickets to Mars - the planet, not the chocolate bar!
I don’t suppose there is any chance of getting your money back if you don’t get there.
Almost as good a con as those selling plots of land on the Moon or having a star named after you.

Re: Attaching backscenes to hardboard

It would not surprise me RAF if it was the same as diluted polycel in spray can for a huge price and global warming expellent to boot. I ‘found’ it at work so it was cheap and it smelled like Evostick when sprayed on. Its all gone now and I don’t have back-scenes on the new layout yet, so watching ...

Re: Baseboard for a new layout

Note there is a big difference between planning permission and building regulations approval. The former is more interested in will it change the look of the house, whereas the latter is more interested in maintaining structural integrity and habitation qualities of the space, e.g. it can be strong ...

Re: Sunrise this morning

2 days ago we were sitting out in the garden enjoying the warm sun, but today its rain, snow flurries and a bitter wind in East Anglia, so it looks like going out to the train room will get a swerve today. I wonder if I can find a Metcalfe kit and a tube of glue indoors.

Re: Plug n Play decoders.

Thanks for the replies. I'll have a look at the CV's - this will be new to me - although I did reduce the sound on a loco by changing the CV. My controller is an Elite and it is v1.45. You can adjust volume on the main track using Operate programming mode, but usually you will change CVs in Direct ...

Re: Plug n Play decoders.

... May be they do have a problem with Hornby DCC controllers? Also the first one wouldn't accept a four digit code. Just a thought - .... doesn't do 4 digit codes, only the Elite does from the Hornby range. Elink also handles four digit addresses. All Hornby kit is tested with many other make item...

Re: Pausing SKY Sport Channels

Just had my holiday in Derbyshire in two weeks time scrubbed. I was waiting for them to do it rather than me cry off, although I had asked them about the situation. They are offering a rebook later in the year or total cancellation for £100 to cover expenses. I thought that was a tad steep. Expectin...
