Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I have not done any work on the layout now for sometime - months. We have had new carpets fitted in several bedrooms which has meant beds and furniture has been relocated, and while the rooms are empty a bit of decorating was required, so access to the railway room has either been blocked or I've ha...

Re: It's safer by train...

We can all assume what might have happened, but looking at Google Maps, the golf course, which the police assumed the car and passengers were heading to, is almost immediately on the other side of the crossing. Again, assuming the car never made it over the crossing, looking at the picture the polic...

Re: Peco 75 Double slip with Cobolt digital

Having given a rather non helpful answer at the beginning of this thread, and read the answers that came later, especially Brian's.

Re: The new layout

Hi John - my layout Wykeham is in the back bedroom - 10x7, so only a few inches bigger than the space you have available - it should not be a problem at all. If you limit your board width to say 18inches, you can run around three sides of the room, you could go right round, but the door may be a pro...

Re: Peco 75 Double slip with Cobolt digital

Hi - I have a code 75 double slip which is operated by two Cobalt iP's. I'm no expert, but the only thing I could suggest is to try programming that point motor again.

Re: Montfort's Bridge

It's never going to be 100% perfect first time out - we've all put stuff down, moved it, changed our mind, gone back to as it was originally. Then just after you've finished and are happy with it - you think of something else you could do. It's what modelling is all about. Have another go! BB
