    Now that is quite impressive for a outdoor semi outdoor. how covered is that car port? must be large enough to keep the wind and rain away from it cause there is no way in hell you could have those buildings out in British weather lol you have me thinking now about semi covering with carport material. hmmmmm

    Breaking in new models

    Is there a general rule to break in new models. as like with new motor bikes is there restrictors on them or they stay slow till broken in? my new engine is very slow even at full speed on my basic hornby controller.
  12. Does anyone have experience with these. My HO union pacific has them and although i was offered the service to convert them to hornby style due to all my rolling stock being hornby couplers. i don't really want t remove the knuckles as i really like the look of them. so im thinking maybe change a couple of rolling stock couplers to these instead. Are they easy to disengage once attached? do they simply just bump wagon to attach? are there easy/auto uncouplers to get for them? any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers Danny

    the perspex looks better than the traditional wooden ones most use. im trying to avoid the wooden one if i can mainly due to cosmetics. i love the clean look that setup has. very nice.

    Yea it is. i am debating how best to deal with that. Thinking easiest would be to make a gutter shaped dip in front made of grass mat and maybe a hill behind it of same material. A lot of first's are happening in this update. First time using flexi track and isolation joiners and even cutting track to fit.
