Re: New build

Why not try wire in tube to change points - it saves money and I use them to lessen wiring as a newbie plus I like the manual changing - the feel of them clicking into place - mind you, I’m both weird and a cheapskate! Don’t want to repeat too much but flat baseboards are so important. Hope you sti...

Re: Nearly finished project

Came out better than I hoped. My next job is to try my hand at the Scalescenes canal boat. The worst I can do is muck it up. https://i.postimg.cc/JDcBpb5Q/lock-6.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/vxYxkcPw/lock-5.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/kRgDwL4n/lock-2.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/sGxD5S6x/lock-1.jpg Many thank...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street.

A serious question: Why does nobody depicting railways in Britain ever (I've never seen it) show puddles down the side or roads or on roads/tracks by the side of lines as if it has been raining?
