Re: Nostalgic photos

There weren’t any prestige engines only dirty old engines covered in soot and oil and the carriages weren’t any better but I loved them all.

In Mays issue of steam railway there were two photos which brought the railways of my era to life so I’ve copied them to share. What were your railway memories like.

Re: Atlas 60 degree crossover.

I’ve fitted a Shinohara code 100 double slip and they look good and do the job but no springs to keep them closed so beware what kind of motors you use.

Re: DCC Sound

I’ve just purchased a iPhone 6s speaker online for very little cost as I have a Bachman class 20 which I’m going to replace the speaker. Wouldn’t one of this type be acceptable as the sound is supposed to be very good.

Re: Beginner layout.

I started with the Hornby controller also but soon came very dissatisfied with it so stepped up to the Power cab and have been more than satisfied with it, well worth the extra cost.
