Re: Busy weekend in the workshop

Most of them were resin castings from the Model Citizens range.
They still need finishing, where does the time go?
I must build the layout, I have the stock, buildings, vehicles and people, just need to sort the plan.

I like Bredgar, we take our loco down there for a few months at a time.

This is a video of it climbing the bank into the station.

We take it to Bredgar like this.

I got one of these a few months ago at TK-Max for £7.99.
Looking at the specification PDF this scales out as near as dam it to 1/24th.
I bought mine to make a mini digger in 1/19th with a new scratch built cab.

Interesting start. My only observation is of the two right hand sidings and the loading gauge clearance. It looks like it will be tight also with stock passing on the main line. You would need room for some form of stop at the end of each siding. I would suggest you check with your largest items of ...

Hi Jon Looks good, especially being your first build. I have built over 50 points and if you don't mind I have a couple of observations. First is the alignment through the frog, this may well be due to camera angle, but it looks like the left rail of the right track does not line up exactly through ...

The ELR is my friends railway, a real working line. I can confirm the rooster bar is indeed a bit if rail. We built the end tipping wagon to help with muck tipping along the line, then as it builds up we put a track panel on top and move along. The wagon is hydraulic tipping, powered by truck batter...

I have used this on some corrugated sheet, it worked well, takes a couple of days for the full effect.

I would add another point at the back on the right to complete the loop, that way you can enter either road from either direction.

Hi Dallas

Just catching up with this thread.

Side skirts get my vote and maybe have one cab door open or missing, that way you get some more depth/texture to the model.

Nice to see you on this forum.

Now.... is it possible to connect the pick ups directly to the motor and loose the circuit board?


Yes, the board is really only somewhere to plug in a DCC chip and to locate the light switch.
