Re: RSR new layout.

The northern sidings points have been wired up. They still have to be tested. There are also various details to be seen to, like tightening, trimming and anchoring the cable binders, and trimming and labelling the wire ends where they are to be attached to the control panel. I Intend to use scart co...

Control panels

To compose an up-to-date track section diagram, with all the points etc. marked in, I had to unpack the control panels from the old layout and read off the details. The design and construction of the old control panels, which are to be used again on the new layout, is documented on flickr: https://w...

Re: Jencaster - 1930's LMS OO gauge layout

Fantastic layout, Ian! The closeup pictues are really convincing. And there are plenty of details and nice little touches. Gives me something to try to emulate. Is there any chance we could see a track plan, please?

Cheers and keep up the good work,
Artur

Re: RSR new layout.

Quire right, Ian, quite right, footplate. If I might point out, though, my name on the Forum is Artur Gorote. The RSR is my employer.

Re: RSR new layout.

You're right, footplate, that's pretty much how I would have done it but, as I say, the idea has been overtaken by more recent events and I don't see it coming to pass. The indoor layout will keep me busy enough. A finish date, as Ian puts it, is only pencilled in, but I am reasonably confident of h...

Re: RSR new layout.

Put like that, footplate, it doesn't sound such a hard job after all. I'd just need to set a conduit throught the double walls. Unfortunately, the garden has undergone various developments in the meantime and there are now numerous obstacles (shed, deck, shrubs etc). It seemed like a good idea at th...

Tube and wire and omega loops.

I hope I'm not off-topic in this area. Can anyone please recommend me decent suppler of tube (preferably brass) and wire, bell cranks and omega loops? The intention is to power as many points as possible with SM3s, which are much more robust than all these little plastic lightweight things. A search...

Re: RSR new layout.

Many thanks for your kind feedback, gentlemen. Please don't flatter me too loudly, otherwise my head may start to exceed the loading gauge. Producing those perspex "kits" was a total pain in the proverbial, and the bigest one's still to be done. Oh, well, grin and bear it and get your finger out, Ar...
