  2. I booked xmas off so loads of modelling time. Was feeling a bit down that it was nearing the time to return to work. Feeling down turned to feeling ill. One positive test later.

  3. Feeling right royally down this evening - I have a call tomorrow to look at some software development, I have a ready made solution to the problem I will be faced with but there is another way to do the same thing and I am attempting to get my head around it. But can I get it to return even the most simple dataset as it should do - no I cannot, spent two days, seen some progress but not enough. Sometimes I feel like I am a total failure and my imposter syndrome is banging all the drums it can muster at present to make me feel much worse. Hopefully, now I've

  4. This is not really Christmas as so many would know it, however that does not prevent me from wishing everyone a safe and happy time tomorrow and should you be on your own, then please know that many are with you in spirit if not in person. Take care, be kind and may the next year coming be one that allows all to return to a better World.

  11. I'm finding simple things difficult lol. I have managed to carry out a control change on a signal and thats about it. It did involve five track circuits and three lots of point detection but was succesful all the same. (OO gauge, steering clear of the bigger stuff for a bit)

  17. Dear readers from RMweb I started in 2018 with a plan to model killin junction and the branch line to Loch Tay in N scale. The seed was put into the ground in 2012, when I found a picture of Killin Station. After I moved to a bigger house I could start making a plan. Which will exist of 2 layers 1st layer killin junction, 2nd layer via a helix and a viaduct to killin station and Loch Tay. in 2020 I became a member do NGS and I bought a book callander & Oban railway. I’m busy building my own loc 0-4-4t In 2014 I went to Bo’ness to see the 0-4-4t but the real loc was dism

  29. I have read in the rmweb that modelex controllers are feedback. They are a very good quality unit. I would like to mention that they are very smooth dc and not feedback. I have used pentrollers on all my layouts including n gauge for many years and haven't had any trouble including the latest farish dc sound diesels. They are a dc stepped feedback not ac stepped feedback so the motors don't get warm.pic controllers are similar in design and uses the same hand held three sided case, but will auto detect the motor as pentrollers have a three way switch. For a very smooth slow control especially

  32. Kneeling on the floor to lay track at my age is not doing my joints any favours. And the pins and needles whenever I get back up...... Mind you, at least on the floor I can lay the track straight and see what I am doing, swings and roundabouts. Dapol Class 50 ordered for my Western region parcels, or LM parcels for that matter, in '76 it could be either.

  38. After inactivity for 8 years i have moved house and decided to build a new DCC equipped WCML based layout in the loft. Due to Covid-19 I can only have the floor installed at the beginning of February 2021. I have reclaimed a large part of track, points and scenic items from my previous layout Boston Junction. The space available to me will be 18ft x 11ft. At present everything is on hold so have bought 1 new loco which is a Hornby Class 87 87001 and the Metcalfe brick viaduct to compliment my own Bachmann 4 car Virgin voyager, Bachmann Freightliner class 66 66952 and Hornby Virgin Trains H
