Re: Challenge 2015 - Peter Bowen - HO Roundhouse

Hi Peter, The weathering of the floor looks really good, our garage floor looks something very similar!! I guess the techniques are the same no matter what the scale but I guess the larger the scale the better the opportunity to make it look like the real thing - any pointers for a n gauge man and a...

Re: My First Layout - N Gauge Denesport & Lesley Falls

Good evening, And a nice drink it was :D As promised a very quickly drawn layout using one of the many on line available track planning tools - it was only the demo version hence the limited plan. I have found that "playing" with the actual turnouts onto a solid surface was a really enjoyable proces...

Took the plunge and tried to post but not sure what went wrong (or I did or didn't do) but it didn't work out - you will see a post but there's nothing there when you try to open it and it seems to have an odd date (1970) attached. Any thoughts?

Regards
