Minimum Space Layout contest (?French?) : Anybody recall?

Dear Gnatterboxers, Am frantic trying to remember the name of a minimum space layout contest, possibly based out of France, or certainly in Europe. The core details were that once the modeller had picked their desired gauge, the max allowable layout footprint dimensions (length and width) were some ...

Dear Gerry, Love the way that some people consider basic circuits soo "proprietary" that they must scrub off any and all ID markings on the components... Seems to be a curiously UK thing, I've noted the same thing with items sold by Gaugemaster... Happy Modelling, Aim to Improve, Prof Klyzlr

Dear Adrian, As a extra bit of info, the NCE MiniPanel appears to be the same basic animal as the DSS1, albeit strictly for NCE systems. Both have limitations which are more to do with the DCC at-the-rails command structure than the actual units themselves, but we'll leave that conversation for anot...

Dear Gn15 fans, Simple analog DC shuttles have been a bread-n-butter piece of many show layout builders toolkits for many years now. However, given the need to run any loco (without modification, reconfig, or reporgramming), in any direction, at any orientation, at any time, and in some cases sudden...

Dear Adrian, They may not have been Gn15, but in the case of the Aussie examples, all non-Gn15 layouts were layouts which Carl had a _major_ influence on, and had appeared in one form or another in the Small Layout Scrapbook... (IE it wasn't just "layouts for layout's sake")... NB that eve...

Dear DCR, No no, never fear. SFER #4 may be a small wagon, but it's a plucky little piece of rollingstock, that's carried many a load far beyond the call of duty. I am in no fear that it'll survive anything it may encounter during the World Tour, and have a wagon-load of stories to tell when it once...

SFER #4, Haggis Hauler?

Dear SFER #4 World Tour fans, Being as SFER #4 was originally envisaged as a general purpose ore hauler, I _guess_ Haggi (pural of haggis?) is a logical comodity for it to handle? SFER #4 with surface power at top level of "Jaxcilliest Enterprises" http://staff.fairlightau.com/johnd/gn15/S...
