Re: Think I will need some help

I'm looking around for some local clubs to visit, my local dealer has a layout above the shop I believe, will have to have a chat and see if I can see it. It's the choice, which way to go, more choice of s/h locos and rolling stock on OO but less chance of the layout I want. Definitely leaning to N ...

Re: Will need some help

Thanks for the tip Roger, it could have got crowded. Not sure if I should post this here but......... I'm not sure a 4'x6' base is going to get me what I want in OO. it's left me not even making the folding baseboard I was considering even though it's all propping up the wall. I bought a couple of s...

Re: Will need some help

You're right Mick,
bought some more flexi yesterday and ready to go today, it's that there are so many perms so trial and error, chopping and changing. It's nice to get some electric to the track even though nothing is fixed.

Re: Will need some help

I agree MG, In my local dealer(models that is :) ) I saw for the first time N gauge kit and it's quite tiny, he said a layout is about half the size. He had lots of used OO but very little \N. I was surprised the Peco wagons were around £7-8, great but locos new out of my range, perhaps if Peco did ...

Re: My thoughts on a folding baseboard

Thanks Mick, I'll be looking into that but at the mo..... I bought 4 Peco flexi tracks and 4 points, had my boards cut, no hinges yet but put one half on the trestles for a experiment. I found that most of my sidings from my plan fit on one board and that when I've joined them it will be better 6x4 ...

Re: Palace Gates

Thanks bb, that will add additional details together with the other maps.
It's coming together, detailed 1935 map on National Library of Scotland, can magnify down to points and tracks, might not have enough room but will do as much as I can.
I think I'm there now.
Thanks again.

Re: Will need some help

Thanks Steve, I agree on the hinges and working on a plan to lock the two halves together and the over centre latches look good to go under the join. I thought of the smaller suitcase type for locking the two halves together closed. I will experiment. Scenery and buildings are not a concern as right...

Re: Palace Gates

Thanks Wtd and Roger, Having spent most of the morning searching I stumbled on "bowesandbounds" and a 1944 schematic map of the whole site so along with photos on the Disused station website I should be able to plan an acceptable layout. Thanks again, it's funny how you can keep searching over and o...
