Re: Single Track Module Set

Hi
I am with Koos on this one, nothing beats a long train on a very long scenic only module! There must be a proper word for this.

Re: Model Railroading in the UK, a perception

Hi Koos

A good answer. However we have been operating prototypically over here for years which people over there seem aware of, Freezer wrote an excellent little book in 93 and we certainly ran a large Japanese N Gauge layout with signals and timetable well over 10 years ago.

TT&TO at Weston

Hi

I wonder if any one is interested in trying our hands at TT&TO on Saturday evening? I know this would mean missing the traditional meal.

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!

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
