Re: Hello from Lincolnshire

Welcome to the forum. It would be useful to know how old these models are - perhaps some model numbers if you have them (Hornby R****). 1950s in box , Model numbers on box EDL 1 ( locomotive) & D1 tender EDL 1 is either a Hornby Dublo 3-rail loco, or a two rail Sir Nigel Gresley. A picture of the u...

Re: Hello from Lincolnshire

If you visit a local model railway club I'm sure you'll find enthusiastic recipients :) Take a few along and see what they say - it can't hurt anything and you may be surprised by how valuable some of the collections is. If you list one or two of the items here, (not for sale of course #rule5#) but ...

Re: Glueing track down

If there isn’t room to pin the track, using screws could be even more difficult. I like pins but they need to be the right ones, definitely not the Hornby version. Easy to press in, easy to remove and no blister from a small screwdriver. :D I agree, there may not be sufficient room but screwdrivers...

Re: Glueing track down

Almost all of my track is now screwed down - you can get very small head screws from *bay. The need the holes pre-drilling but are easier to remove if track needs repositioning and less track damage is caused from removal.

Re: Hello from Lincolnshire

Welcome, if you have the space then utilising them would be good. Selling on *bay may not produce the expected level of funds as some things sell for less even though they look identical. Selling en-masse to a dealer will produce quick funds with only a little effort, but will show the smallest retu...

Are you using flexy track.
No, using old super 4 as an experiment. It looked to me like that was what was originally used, as confirmed later :)

Mine too, for a small layout it looks very interesting. Trying to reproduce it isn't easy though (I've tried just to get the track down.)

Re: Warning

Remembered the can this morning, 17 euros for petrol. Beginning to wonder about a couple of sheep. Can you buy an electric tractor. I assume that you want to use it to cut grass: http://www.gaywaysltd.co.uk/husqvarna-rider-battery-p5953 but it doesn't come cheap! Or from E-bay: https://www.ebay.co....
