I shall await your comments ...

Over the past couple of weeks I've been doing some "virtual modelling" (which used to be called planning) for the extended layout.

Because of the loss of a physical passing place between ...

Thanks, Peter. I've learned one lesson - don't keep trying to keep trains moving while attempting two simultaneous conversations, and particularly if a camera is involved!

Made a start yesterday on the depot at Tallahatchie, adapted from parts of a kit of unknown origin.

There's been a little spare time to examine the Terrier chassis bought recently, and the results are promising. Everything was a bit stiff at first but a little oil has helped. The main issue seems to ...

Over the past few days some carpentry has been taking place so that Puerto Paseo can become a home-based layout. This has had the useful spin-off of making a space to keep Salop Street and Shellsea on ...

Two good suggestions. I think the jack-plug idea would work best with a sunken turntable pit as it would fit below the deck, between the track-supporting girders. Unfortunately the Dapol deck is almos ...

Further to the earlier post regarding the damaged turntable contacts - a call to Peco's Technical Services Department resulted in a new set of contacts arriving at a cost of 2 (1 + 1 p&p), whic ...

Brake van F3 has been a bit camera shy so far.

This is partly because photographs tend to show the front of the train, but also because I've never been quit ...

Found an interesting website while browsing for something completely different. If you use diecast toy cars (Matchbox, etc) as scenic items - and like to source them in junk boxes - you may like to in ...

I came back from the recent Wycrail show with the motorised chassis from a Dapol "Terrier", in working order but in need of a clean up and oil around. This is going to be a long-term projec ...

Nice idea, Bob. Will the siding next to the loco shed become the company's wagon repair shop - seeing you anticipate both goods and passenger vehicles using it? Now you've just got to find a new home ...
