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.
