Re: Radio Control

Would be exactly the same result on a DCC layout.......once the power to the track was disabled you would send in the radio controlled loco as you did........ :) ..........HB

Re: The new layout

John......you need to have the hinges mounted on blocks above the track level in order that the the track on the flap lifts away from the join or, better still, have the flap hinged to fold downwards. When brought up to level it is then held horizontally by two shoot bolts. https://i.postimg.cc/xcwN...

Well you'll be pleased to learn that, according to the latest Bachmann catalogue, every loco comes complete with a DCC socket.......HB

Re: Bachmann 2019

It seems to have gone unnoticed that Bachmann have recently had to change factories in China at short notice thus compromising this years' planned production........therefore it would not be unreasonable for them to expect a bit of patience & understanding from retailers and customers......the finan...

Re: The great model railway challenge

The viewing figures for this programme were just over 1 million, just slightly less than Traffic Cops & Casualty and more than Walking Britain's Lost Railway.......I find it interesting, informative and entertaining and nowt wrong with the presenters or the judges....... :geek: ...HB

Re: Anyone got a spare £25M?

I think you will find this is a private venture so no government (our taxes) have been wasted. Fully aware of that, TWD, but it is just irritating that someone with so much money and ambition should waste it all on a meaningless project. So a jet engine on wheels can go 1000 mph!

Re: Attic layouts

Great layout, Tim, you must have put a lot of work into that. Interesting to note you have surface mount point motors yet they don't detract from the excellent scenic effects......... 8-) ........HB
