I am doing a new layout on to a old baseboard but some of the old baseboards tops have spilts in the baseboard tops I was due to get a hobby shed for it I wouldn’t be able to get it for a while and due to covid 19 I will not able to get new replacements tops for a while it be a while before I can see my new layout design up and running
  4. Just wondering if anyone would have used Kingspan foam board as part of their building of their baseboards or part of the plan

      That sounds like the switch blades, as in the picture I just posted - try making sure the moving blade actually connects to the fixed one.

  9. The. Peco points are a good electro frog points & wired correctly

      Perhaps the wheels are wider or need to be re- gauged?

  12. At the moment it's just 1 locomotive just stops at the point I have test the rest at the weekend
  13. When runs on my layout the locomotives keep stopping at the same part of the point is anything Ivan do to sort it out as I clean the track before every run and clean the wheels on the locomotives as my ecos command station keeps showing the short sign as the loco comes near it any tips will greatly needed
