A New Foreign Layout

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

:D Day 1 of Rail-Ex successfully completed. Last night, when I was supposed to be in bed, I decided to do the 'track cut and diode trick' to stop anything doing a high dive off the end of the layout. Moderately successful.... I miscalculated the momentum effect, and need to set the cuts back a bit. Small job before start of play in the morning.

:D N2GS ready for start of play on day 2 of Rail-Ex 2014.

A change of transformer/controller solved the 'overrun' problem we had yesterday, and respacing the diode gaps was not necessary. He ran Petherick Pier all day, without complaint... and proved to be a competent operator.

:D Fellow modellers agreed that 'cab and chassis' is the best way to display this vehicle. They too, loved the detail.

Showing this weekend as Petherick Pier at Rail Ex 2017.

Dusted off this evening, applied power, and she still works.... even the diode protected reversing sections.
