Re: The great model railway challenge

I agree with the judges, only one met the brief of 'Globetrotting' in my view. The other two were good layouts but lacked the focus on the theme of the week.

I'll be watching the rest of the series :)

Re: A/C controller.

You don't say what voltage etc you're looking for, but would an old Trix TTR fit the bill? They were 14v ac. There are a number on the 'bay at present, some as 'Buy it Now' and some as 'Auctions'.

Re: Old maps

North East England.

Just north east of Murton referred to by RAF96

I went back and looked further - a number of the background maps use the same incorrect data for street names.

Re: Old maps

I've just had a look at that site and found they use a mapping company that has things wrong! Compare OpenStreetMap with the google map of the same area and you will see Parkside Crescent and Heathway have become the same street on OpenStreetMap whereas Heathway ends at the shops and becomes Parksid...

Re: Anyone got a spare £25M?

If I had spare millions I would spend most of it on wine, women and song. Then I'd squander the rest :D :D After all that wine, women and song - the Inheritance Tax bill could be rather large! The Inheritance Tax bill will be tiny if you spend most of it - but it may come quicker than you wish if y...

Re: Gaugemaster 4 track controller

Hi Unless you're competent with making a power supply (Mains to safe low voltage) for each of the four controllers, I seriously suggest you purchase the cased Model Q version. The panel mounting version needs 4 x separate 16volt AC feeds. Note Morley also make excellent controllers http://morleycon...

Re: Anyone got a spare £25M?

With £25Million sitting in the bank spare (it's unlikely to be in a current account but hey …) I'd not be 'investing' in this project. I'd be like TDD, enjoying myself and squandering the rest (no children to pass it on to and no wife to worry about :) ) I might give some to local railway preservati...
