Steve you've convinced me! I've just picked up the same loop of track and a couple of shorter straights from Plaza Japan so I can test out my DCC sound locos/general running in of locos before I've finished converting my points to electrofrog and laying all the track. I'm hoping to do as you say (ra...

I don't know Henry (or how to organise it TBH!) but could we arrange a little collection or donation towards a new layout? All chip in to order some items from Sidelines or similar? Also I don't know what stock he uses!

Looking lovely Bilco! I'm always jealous of other people's plasticard builds, so neatly done and smooth with no shiny blobs!

I've secretly wanted a tanker wagon for a while so this is a nice inspirational thread for me!

Lovely layout John, I particularly enjoy the slight waggle of the green loco as it trundles around, lovely! That fence is brilliant as well, I love how these things can be made in prototypical ways in the larger scales. The video is great as well, it's a really nice way of presenting the layout. Wha...

Woah, when I first saw that picture I thought you'd dropped in a shot of a garden railway you were working on! Awesome ground cover!

Yowser Bob, that is looking stunning. I particularly love the door and the padlock, and lovely weathered/faded paintwork. The scrub and trackside foliage looks brilliant as well.

The layout is looking lovely dude! Nice and simple and a great start on the scenics and track!

Also, just in case you fancy trying one:

(F) Real fueling points

Hey folks I've seen plenty of oil drums and hosepipe/fuel nozzles on the Gnatterbox, and whilst I'm sure some small lines had them, has anyone got a photo of a real diesel/petrol refuelling 'depot' on a minimum gauge line? I'm imagining a reasonably sized fuel tank and a few safety precautions, but ...

It's a real thing of beauty, congrats both to you and the new owner!

This does look awesome, and I can see why you were so inspired by that shot - it's fantastically evocative! Of course it depends on the stock you're using, but my only concern is that the sidings are so close you might not be able to fit much on them because of the stock's overhang over the track? M...

Thanks for that Simon. I'm using DCC so I'm hoping slow speed will be a bit easier but I may well go for the belt and braces approach. Any idea what you're planning to put on your Kato chassis? I'm slowly (very slowly) building this on mine: http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?t=6514 (head to the m...

Howdy there - looking good and I liked the old setup, but the new layout is nice too!

Is that a setrack insulfrog point you have there btw? I just recieved one and I'm debating as to whether I need to convert it into a electrofrog point to avoid any pick up problems. Is it running ok for you?

Ok cool!

Of course very prototypical, but perhaps best to not be so prototypical that you actually scratch the paint off rather than just modelling the scratched paintwork!! :shock:

It's looking good so far, and hate to be a party pooper ( :oops: ) but won't most of your locos be too wide for the track and scrape their sides along that piece of wood at the back?

Thanks a lot Adrian, and thanks very much for your comprehensive response Huw! Thanks for all your bullet points. I was planning to make sure all the wires are secured in an easily readable way and fully labled/mapped etc. I've got a lot of track in a small board (see my signature for a very close v...

Ok, cheers guys. Had a chat with my electrical engineer father and he's suggesting that as my layout is so small (500mmx500mm) rather than having a chunky bus wire going across the board with droppers off it, it might be wise to try and keep the connections easy to access, possibly by running all th...

Hi Adrian Thanks, that's really helpful and makes total sense! I was trying to recall my Electronics classes at high school to see if it was something to do with resistance, but I'd reckoned a bigger pipe was probably better than a small one. I guess it's not so much of a problem to use thicker mult...

Wiring choices

Hi all Bit of an odd question here. Can anyone tell me why you wouldn't want to use the biggest gauge of wire available (that you can fit under the board of course!)? I'm making my layout with DCC control, and the recommended gauge wire is 24/0.2 for the main bus, and smaller gauge single strand dro...
