Re: Steampunk anyone?

This post sent me off to youtube. This https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yOjaLH6L-o video is the 3rd in a series but if you jump to 19:47 onwards you see the result.

I've always thought of SteamPunk as something you did to your locos, not something ready to run!

Re: Computer Control

I have a Prodigy Express2 with wi-fi module. The wi-fi module acts as a 'server' and should be found via the wireless connection on a PC in the same way as a connection to your router.

Re: Any tips for making holes for track pins?

I use tiny screws - I do a pilot hole first with the Arhimedes drill then carefully screw in the little screw. It makes continually changing the layout fun - or altering it. If you use screws they're easy to remove, so those that prefer glue as the final fix can do the same as me, then remove easily...

Re: Rails of Sheffield

I think (bank balance hopes!) that I have spent enough now on locos and I have a healthy set of rolling stock so won't impact on me too much, although as a customer that has spent a considerable amount this year I'd have hoped I would get the e-mail. I haven't had it just yet!
