But hold on, what kind (size) of dragon is that going to hatch? Or is it very, very, v e r y well cushioned?

Re: First micro layout

Hi Chris,


I’m not quite sure if the ‘passengers’ are dinosaurs or dragons, but it seems to me that you next piece of rolling stock should be some sort of wagon lined with straw with a bunch of eggs nestling in it.

Re: [1:12] First micro layout

Chris,

It's a slippery slope from modelling what pretty much equates to 7 1/4" gauge in 1/12 scale to realising it gives a very practical but small narrow gauge with plenty of potential in real life.

See the link below my signature for more. :D

Chris,

As Peter says, card is great for modelling.

Your loco reminds me of some of the models in this album

Hi Chris, Re video: I know Barry (through the internet) whose layout that is. 16mm scale on 32mm track, all the track and points are hand made. Live steam and battery electric locos. Barry also works on a very tight budget. The main difference between your first design and the latest one is that in ...

Re: Bergerac's small layout

Chris, I think that’s fine. I’m a big believer in keeping it simple. You can have masses of fun shuffling things from one siding to another to make up a train of wagons in just the order you want. Then, when it’s ready or you want to relax, out it goes for a few circuits. The next thing is to decide...

Re: First micro layout (now dismantled)

Chris, Some of the most innovative and beautifully detailed creations have been the so called ‘pizza’ layouts. In once sense just a circle of track but in reality so much more. To hopefully make it easier here’s a selection of those that have ‘pizza’ in their title. http://gn15.info/forum/search.php...

The loco seems to ride those curves no problem.

My smart phone isn't that smart either. Mind you, I have a nasty suspicion it’s smarter than me.

Re: The Much Gnattering & Far Twaddle Light Railway

Mark,

Hoping I’ve done the right thing I’ve changed all the thread and post titles to ‘Gnattering’. Ongoing any replies will automatically pull the correct title on through with them, as evidenced with this post.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Denny,

Good to see you’ve got back in to the Gnatterbox.

I was initially a bit flummoxed by your request, but I tried a search or two and wondered if this thread showed the sort of thing you are after:
