I've been deliberating whether to bother with OHLE on my layout as its my first layout and I already think I've jumped in at the deepend a little sometimes but I really really want OHLE on my layout (non working) to complement the modern scene I'm trying to model.
So far I've done quite a bit of research looking on here and google.
I've purchased some of the Dapol catenary masts, which I think look pretty good and some will certainly be gracing my layout. However from looking at the tracks around here they seem to use various gantry designs.
So in my research it seems like I've certainly got to build the majority of my own gantries which I don't mind doing. I have quite a decent soldering iron and not too bad at soldering.
However I'm struggling to get my head around what I actually need to build something to represent a gantry with all the bits n pieces (don't know the technical terms)
I've found the N Brass website which seems to have the kits for the gantries / portal supports but I want other designs as per the Minsterly layout / Warren Lane etc.
I know there are a few topics dotted around but I just can't seem to grasp what I actually need to buy to build what I want - unless someone reading this fancies building me a couple of pieces, I'll pay of course!!
