Re: Freemo Extravaganza - Armitage, Staffs, 5th/6th July 201

Hi Martyn

Yes, keen to bring along a module, but who is our POC? BTW I assume that RS Tower / NMRA BR (new spec) boards are in order.

Re: Western Union November meet 2013

I think although the crossing is controlled by signals etc, I think it would be even more fun if we add track warrants for one of the branches, I quite liked that element on the old Anson layout. :-) Hi Koos I have written a add on to JMRI which allows me to do TWs very quickly and update the Train...

Re: Winter Project - West Mary Yard - Postponed!

so I am a bit stuck with just the two 6ftx2ft boards. Hi Keith I have seen some really great O gauge exibition layouts less than that in size. However for plain switching see http://www.carendt.com/articles/highland/. Or Curren Street Yard 14' http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=dMhE18XH5PYC&pg=PA27...

Re: Winter Project - West Mary Yard - Postponed!

The (run round) loop is where I tend to hit the lack of space problem, but want more than just an 'inglenook', I will need something operationally interesting. I'm still looking around at other ideas/options. Hi Keith You do not mention the size of your locos, if they are small switchers 14' should...

On30

Hi

Looking for some pointers for On30 as a couple of us in Western Union are going to have a go at laying our own track. Nothing else decided apart from narrow boards.

Thanks

Re: Switch Lists

Hi Mike In the real world there are I think lots of different "switch lists". At one extreme one has a list of numbers scribbled on the back of a fag packet by the conductor, in another period one has a tablet with internet connection in the cab updating real time. The only thing I believe is that t...

Hi Jock

I use them on my HO Module Jonesville. By and large they just work. We did have problems with two locos, but I tend to believe it was a gauge problem. Indeed I will probably use them again.

All the best

Hi Martyn

I _think_ that is dependant on ones DCC system. But certainly we have run with more than one computer acting as a WiFi throtle host.
