  1. I’ve been looking into options for points decoders for a upcoming project and came across this site. https://www.dcc-decoders.com/shop Has anyone here any experience with them? I’d be considering using the turnout decoder to power solenoids so I assume the CDU add on would be a good idea too. As someone who has built a few PCB kits in the past the DIY option looks tempting but would value opinions from anyone other RMwebbers. OliverSR
  2. Short answer is sadly not “Lots” I made attempts add track to the upper level but time and interest dropped off and it ended up not getting very far. I have since moved house but Lot’s Road did come with me as the new place had a garden studio where having a layout can happen. I have since done some other large builds(non railway related) and DIY bits and am now feeling more confident to tackle making something of it. However it will be extensively reworked and incorporated into a smallish continuous running layout so a very different concept to the original(apologies to those who
  3. Hi I’m looking for a circle of OO/HO EZ track or similar. Just after something cheap I can set up around a tree this year and the EZ sort with raised bases seem a safer bet for the floor. As long as it’s enough to make a circle and run trains on it should suit the bill. PM me if you have anything you’d be willing to sell. OliverSR
  4. While looking on eBay I came accross these for sale. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143657732683 I hadn’t a seen a coreless tenshodo variant before and they look to be a newish development albeit at a higher price. Considering the standard tenshodo can be a bit hit or miss I wonder how these coreless variants compare. Has anyone tried these as I am curious about how they preform? OliverSR
  5. Acquired recently in a house clearance I came across these two books and so if anyone can offer them a good home and cover postage they are yours. Book 2 Dated 1955 Thomas the Tank engine has childs drawings on the cover and inside cover only but the pages seem to be in okay condition with damage to spine. Book 14 Dated 1959(first edition?) The Little Old Engine. Appears to have no drawings on pages and is in good condition. I would prefer to send them together but would consider splitting if I have two interested parties. Please message me with any interest or
  6. Let me know if you can get to them, ideally contact me via a private message on this site (by clicking on my profile and finding the letter icon there). Depending where you are I may be able to drop them around locally. Either way you are the first person to express interest in them so can have first refusal. OliverSR
  7. I have a selection of O Gauge coaches made out of mainly wood with missing or damaged bogies, in need of a home. If anyone has any use for and can collect from Cheltenham they are welcome to them. Due to the size of them I don’t wish to post them. Anyone interested please PM me to arrange a time for a socially distanced collection. OliverSR
  8. Not an STL file but @Bluebell Model Railway created these which he prints and sells himself. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F202794963730 OliverSR
  9. I think this page has some details on what you were thinking about. http://www.semgonline.com/gallery/class424_exp.html OliverSR
  10. I think the bumpy look is more due to my (arguably poor) choice to brush paint the prints in a thick acrylic primer and if I was doing this again I’d approach them differently with a spray primer and plenty of sanding. I did this quite a while ago but remember the door vinyls not being a great fit as I think they were too long. I’d certainly not consider my efforts to be a good representation of what is possible with a bit more patience and planning. From normal viewing distance I’m happy with them though. I had a look at and I could release the design on shapeways to purchase b
  11. A long overdue update on this layout. I will provide a quick summary of the bits done on the layout. A lot of work was done on the wiring so I now have isolating controls. A modified signal kit was built which has been connected to the point to switch both simultaneously. Using fine scale code 40 track building components 3rd and 4th rails were added which look the part to me without hindering the running of any stock. Lineside cable was scratch built using arms from OO telegraph poles and plastic rod(which took absolutely ages but sets the scene well). The platform had fencing fitte
  12. The coach is definitely OO not O gauge though I could’ve put a ruler in the photos if I’d thought of it. Does anyone have a example of one with a chassis or other livery variants on the same tooling? OliverSR
  13. I recently picked up this small coach body at a show and was wondering if anyone had any ideas what it was. I was thinking it might be Exley possibly? OliverSR
  14. On the N-Train Facebook page on 27/6/19 they posted to say the owner of N-Train Bob was in hospital and apologised as there would be a delay in orders. Hopefully you will hear back once he is recovered. OliverSR
  15. I was wondering if anyone had a set of OO Heljan western wheels to replace some on a earlier model I have. If you have some of the standard OO Gauge left over from a em or p4 conversation then please message me. OliverSR
