Re: Roads

Thanks for the advice. To be honest the camber is something I hadn’t considered. Need to give that some thought.

Roads

I’m now starting to add some scenery and soon that will include roads. I’ve used some 400 grade wet & dry for workshop floors and trackside paths - works well and marks up nicely to look ‘impefect’. What do people use for roads please? Not cobbled, 1960 ish with minimal white markings. Mine is a sma...

Re: conecting multiple dropper into i to connect to bus wire

I also use terminal blocks. Added advantage - if you have a problem with wiring in a particular section it's easy to disconnect and solve the problem.

Re: Coupling issues

Sorry, I forgot to report back!

I removed the coupling link from the brake van and all is well.

Many thanks!

Steps and stairways

I want to build some steps/stairway type thing down from a bridge with houses on it to the lineside. The height is from the Metcalfe viaduct (P0241) so 132mm.

I wondered about adapting a passenger footbridge or maybe building out of spare brick paper/card.

Any thoughts please?

Many thanks.

Re: Railway arch workshops

Great ideas, thank you.

Roger, do you use 320 grade wet and dry for all of your road surfaces?

Railway arch workshops

I've built a Metcalfe double track viaduct (P0241). I'm doing something a little different with it - a row of houses on the top with a narrow road and underneath the arches (yes it's a song!) I'm going to have workshops etc. including a welding bay. Has anyone done anything similar and what ground s...
