Re: Rowley's The backroom layout

Hi Folks Just started sorting out the points when someone told me the the points I was using were not too great with 009 or N gauge as the movement of the points were not enough to change the polarity of the frog properly. http://my.gn15.info/20150321_095335.jpg I've got over this by having a pivote...

Re: Rowley's The backroom layout

Thanks Stockers, It looks as if you've cracked it. I remember when I did all the others I had to remove that tick. I only posted 3 . That's all I've got round to so far. As soon as I get time I will post the missing one, making sure to get rid of the tick and will do the other thing you said. All th...
