  1. Hi, Wonder if you could all have a look and comment on the attached plan for my new HO Canadian layout. Its bascially a continuous run with on one side an interchange yard and engine servicing facility with on the other a dead end rural branch line with a grain silo, team track etc. Behind this the continuous run consists of 2 hidden sidings. I'm limited width wise as at each end there is access required to the room its housed in (lifting sections either end). Idea is to have a continuous run with some operating scope. Thanks in advance
  2. The Class 56 hauled coal traffic was a Gillingham crew turn, we used to book on at 3.50 am and travel pass to Hither Green where we'd normally pick the train up recessed in Bramdean sidings. Route would then be via Tonbridge and up the Medway Valley to New Hythe. There was a marker to stop just past the level crossing and a white light would illuminate once the dummy was pulled off to set back into Brookgate, a propelling move with 36 HAA wagons and no radio comms in those days. Once inside the sidings the train was signalled by the internal lights I think about 5 or 6 wagons being unloaded in
  3. Hi, just come across this topic and may be able to clarify the relative points raised as I was a secondman/trainman at Gillingham 1987-91 and we had all the freight work on the island. 1) Re the MOD traffic this was indeed the first Gulf War 1990/91 and Ridham Dock was the destination point with VEA wagons being used. 2) Re the signalling of Westminster straight there was a 5 lever ground frame in a hut adjacent to the siding signal, coming from Queenborough there would be a proceed aspect on EV82 then we'd stop short of the points for them to be operated and then hand signalled into
  4. Hi, Just found your post from a link you posted re Gaugemaster frog juicers, quick question if I may, have you mounted the actual juicers adjacent to the actual point under the baseboard or mounted them say in a cluster near to any control panel? Thanks, Andy
