  1. More Sunday ballasting. Another 2 platforms done and the area that was the center road
  2. Managed to get the track sprayed with rust and then sleeper grime. Used a new airbrush (Iwata high performance plus from eBay) . Made spraying sleeper grime possible without masking. Have now experimented with woodland scenics stone ballast secured with Klear which seems to give the look I desire on one of the platforms. Now everything is tested and sill working so time to ballast the lot. Just in dilemma whether I do the signaling first?
  3. What colours do you use on this Rail Blue look if I may ask??
  4. Worked on the power cab fine on test. Seems to be the railcom issue. Need to work out how to turn railcom off as the ESU unit doesn’t allow that change in the quick menu
  5. Hi Guys, Do you have any advice on this thread??? Just have an issue with the address on a 156...thanks
  6. Now maybe.... Announced https://www.facebook.com/suttonslocoworks/
  7. Have a question if anyone can help. Fitted @legomanbiffo sound chips to both cars supplied by @charliepetty Programmed them to a 4 digit address on my old powercab (both with same address). bow when I put them on the layout with my ESU system the railcom says it cannot have 2 decoders with same address?? Any ideas what May be the best way round this?? thanks russell
  8. @Trains4U just fired mine up today and after nearly 10 years in a box, it runs a treat. However do you have a copy of the sounds and function keys still? Can’t find the paperwork Russell
  9. so the Hurst option or bashing are still the only options... thanks for the info
  10. hi all, some great info here, thanks to all. Am I right in thinking a TRSB in Swallow is yet to be produced by Hornby. any ideas what options are open, so far I only found a blue grey 3 car pack thanks Russell
  11. Also been getting the ECoS set up. i love the fact I can load the icons to make it very easy for to find locos. Setting up a.m track plan was a little challenge but once you get the hang of it, it’s fairly logical
  12. The main scenic boards seen looking towards the station. The industry sidings discussed here will be based on the Cobra building at Wakefield. I am now slowly working on checking the running of all the lines into the station. Came across some dodgy wiring today so this week will be trying to debug and tidy the last couple of boards wiring. The last photo looks out from the station. Platforms are numbered 1-6 (from the right in the photo). 1,4 & 5 will mainly handle dmus. The gap between 4 and 5 will be a disused middle road. I wanted to have the center road but unfortunately the baseboard joint offered no possibility to lay the point. there is also a short siding for a station pilot as I have a large selection of 08’s. This will be used in conjunction with platforms 5 & 6 that will also have prxeös traffic. Platforms 2 and 3 have been modelled to take a cross country HST set or even have a loco run round or a new loco attached.
  13. The board that links front to back so to speak has 2 short sidings. I had planned to make a small shed or stabling point, however I have run into a problem that the curve into the sidings from the fiddle yard is too tight for a Bachmann 37. I need to check a couple of other locos but I think co-co arrangements will struggle. If this is the case then I will most probably create 2 sidings for DMU’s there is a y point on the main as this was the only way I could get access to all fiddleyard roads. I would want this on an exhibition layout but as it will stay at home it will be fine hidden by the scenic break
  14. All points are powered by tortoise motors decoded mainly by DCC concepts ADS decoders
