  1. Hi aac Thanks but I dont intend having it turned on whilst there its just somewhere it lives when not in use but Thank You for pointing it out
  2. Forgot to say the voltage droppers were from Ebay link here : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3pcs-LM2596-Power-Supply-Step-Down-3Pcs-DC-DC-Buck-Converter-Adjustable-Module/283519172465?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=584674021952&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 and they arrived in three days !
  3. Hi all, Quick update , still slowly doing bits installed some buffer stops , then decided to illuminate them so I drilled the lamps with a 1mm bit then 2mm bit and finally 3mm bit and fitted some 3mm red leds , As my power supply is pumping out 13.8v I needed to find a way to reduce the voltage , was going to buy resisitors but I stumbled across the tiny dc-dc converters in pic 4 at £3.09 for Three (a Bargain) So I wired the leds in series + to- etc then needed 6v so adjusted the converter down to 6v output and brill they work spot on and I still have two spare voltage converters :)
  4. How strange double arrows under leading cab window and centrally too
  5. Great to see you also have some (REAL MONEY) I too have lots of it in differing denominations
  6. That Good Looking A3 was probably built less than 1/2 a mile from where I was born (probably the reason I'm good looking too ) Superb locos there
  7. Wow I like your van wide wish Heljan or Dapol would make one , I tried about ten years ago to build a slaters 12t box van but it never got finished and went on Ebay
  8. God wait till your 66 and trying to see I needed a magnifying glass to make out the c&l finescale fishplates even with my reading glasses on they both looked same only with readers and magnifier could I distinguish between bolt heads and nuts ! But keep it up you will get there
  9. Was extremely lucky to find 4 Brand New GEM railway products point levers as you are probably aware they are like the proverbial rocking horse poo Work perfectly too just awaiting some ptfe tube arriving now as other control wires have to pass under other tracks
  10. Some pics of the wiring underneath the layout
  11. Looks a bit better with bridge sides blackened , can't wait to get started on real overbridge
  12. Finally started to paint the rail sides and Knocked up a mock bridge out of scrap wood to get an idea of what a bridge will look like
  13. the magnifier was for the c&l fish plates phew without magnifying glass I wouldn't of known which were bolt heads and which were nuts !
  14. Finally got some track down and wired so Today was first test run and ran without any hiccups
