    Very nice. I really like your jig for holding the parts in place as they set/are soldered

  5. New fold out layout

    Hi folks. I've been having some shoulder and neck problems for a while now and I am not sure if there's a connection, but I'm taking a break from the attic for a while. It isn't quite tall enough for me to sit/stand comfortably. Also, I really want to see the models in daylight ! Not giving up the attic forever , I've put a lot of work in. Just trying this different. Basically the best place I have now is under the couch in the back room. The layout needs to be less than 3.5" high in order to slide under for storage. All buildings etc will have to be removable to be stored in a box, also I plan to have short trains in little storage cassettes. It is a small shunting type layout but I am pleased to date. It will also mean I am downstairs near the family more ! My only question concerns the join. I was going to underlay the track, but I was thinking that at the baseboard join it might make it harder to keep the track aligned once I've cut through. Underlay or not?
  6. Burtonport

    Tremendous layout of Burtonport, Donegal and a really detailed article in Jan 2017 Railway Modeller. Fabulous stuff. Lots of good detail, history, intriguing buildings and how it was built. Good stuff check it out.

  10. 071 sounds program

    This is just a bit of fun. I made up a program with some sounds from 071 using the free scratch programming language. It just runs online on a laptop . Just trying something really. Here's the link: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/119279218/
  11. I've been attempting a Generator van conversion from mk1 coach to run with my Craven. As I am not fixed to any particular era, I was wondering which livery I might be able to use. For example, I have both early and later cravens. Which livery might suit both (if at all) if I wanted to use the gene van in each of these trains? Thanks
