Re: Proposed new layout

Hi Brian, it would be in OO gauge I’m now thinking as you said that it might be to much for OO so I’m now thinking of building it as an end to end With two traverses one each end for myself and building a go around layout for my grandchildren first. So now the search goes on for a go around layout b...

Re: Proposed new layout

It is intended to be demountable and I see you concern about the size so maybe reducing the board size to 2x3 and using more boards would be better way fwd. The room available is 12x7 of clear space but I could increase it slightly if needed. It would need to be easily dismantled to individual board...

Re: Railway programs

Yesterday channel is fine when watched on free sat, but when recorded on BT vision it’s terribly flakey, I’ve booted BT you view box but no difference. I think BT vision has to go when my contract ends shortly I’ve not been pleased with it and it’s very expensive. I might just get a TV recorder and ...

Railway modelling program

I’ve followed the railway modelling program on the tv, I get the feeling that the presenter are out to make fun of the hobby like a program a while ago about the caravan owners.

My question is does any one else have the same problem ...

Re: Change of car? Maybe.

Took my Merc into the garage the other week for a little TLC after three years of ownership and was astonished when the mechanic opened all the windows with the key fob before getting into the car and then closed them all at once by pressing the air recycle switch. The modern cars have so many trick...
