Re: 55n15 ??

I suspect you'll find the motor is 3V, I've just picked up a Buch HOf mining set (3.5mm scale - 6.5mm gauge), and that is 3V. 'Normal' Z scale stuff is 9V.

Re: regauging wheelsets

I replaced the Slaters supplied wheelsets by removing the Slaters wheels from the axles and replacing them with Hornby ones (the photo shows the one not quite right!). The Hornby wheels are a larger diameter and look better (in my opinion), and are a tight fit on the Slaters axles. I did regauge a c...

Some of you might have heard by other means, but it is my sad duty to inform you all of the passing of an exceptionally creative and talented modeller, Ralph Brammer. He died suddenly in the afternoon of Monday 25th of June at his home whilst painting some model buildings, he was enjoying his modell...

Re: Peco SL-500, SL-100 & Fleischmann 6020

As long as the 6020's are code 100, then certainly. Even if the rail heights are different then you can still use them together, but you'd have to get the top of the rails at the same height as each other. You might then be able to tweak some Peco rail joiners to join them together, but what I used ...

Re: Peco SL-500, SL-100 & Fleischmann 6020

The sleeper heights are slightly different between the SL-500 O-16.5 track and the SL-100 Standard Gauge track, the SL-500 being slightly thicker, so you'll have to pack up the SL-100 at the joint. I've mixed the different Peco code 100 tracks with no problems. 'Code 100' means the height of the rai...

Re: Gn00b Gnwebie

Welcome to the forum and the delights of Gn15 EvadingGrid :D Peco O-16.5 track is a good choice, I used it on my layout Katham House in mostly unmodified form. If you want odd spacing and size of sleepers, then you're better off starting with standard OO track. To get wide sleepers you'll need to re...

Re: Guidance on specialist Narrow Gauge exhibition

The only thing I can suggest is something that a friend of mine who has organised shows in the past told me, you need the right mix of traders to layouts, and the idea is to have the fees paid by the traders cover the cost of hiring the layouts (or near enough). Next time I speak to my friend I'll a...

Glad you got things working Kevin, sometimes the only way to sort things out is by trial and error :mrgreen: The hornby clips are really designed to add to points which have the (jumpered) gap in the rails just short of the frog.

Re: points

it is a Y point, it's on my Katham House layout.

Those two redish 'cuts' are the hinges on the point blades, it's meant to show to jumper across them. It saves having to rely on just the contact between the blades and the stock rail. They're not cuts, apologies for any confusion.
