  1. He was, Stuart Goddard is/was the pop star being referred to. Regards, Jim.
  2. Good Afternoon Tony, Please do! I will bear that information about the forthcoming article in mind, thank you! Regards, Jim.
  3. Good Morning Tony, What a beautiful, neat little layout! Can you tell me please what the baseboard material is? It looks like foam insulation board carved out in certain areas to create the land form, thank you, Regards, Jim.
  4. Good point! It just looks so familiar! Regards Jim.
  5. Hello again! Possibly after passing through Rowlands Castle, Havant and Bedhampton turning right at Farlington Junction then going via Portchester, Fareham and Netley to Southampton thence Redbridge, Dunbridge and Dean onto Salisbury? Regards, Jim.
  6. Hello, My 'educated' guesses looking at the lie of the land and the overbridge in the background, either around Idsworth (Between Petersfield and Rowlands Castle, south of Buriton tunnel) on the down line on it's way to Portsmouth or possibly on the down line via Dunbridge and Dean on it's way towards Salisbury and then perhaps through to the West country? I'm only guessing though, "Good game! Good game! “ Regards, Jim.
  7. This is part of what fascinates me with the Allhallows branch, especially towards the end of it's life there seems to be all sorts of wierd and wonderful combinations of loco's/stock running on it, as well as the fact that the early part of my railway career was spent on the South Eastern section of British Rail (Long after it's closure!) around the Medway area including Hoo Junction yard and the Isle of Grain branch etc.
  8. I have just ordered issues 3 and 4 (Volume 25) using the Guideline Publications website but they didn't have issue 5 available! Never mind, i'll probably give them a ring and make enquiries. I also took out a 12 Month subscription! Lol! Best wishes, Jim.
  9. Excellent! Thanks ever so much! Best wishes, Jim.
  10. Hello, I have only just seen your post by perusing through previous pages! I wonder if you could tell me the magazine numbers of those 3 issues please? I'm very interested in anything to do with the Allhallows branch and it's workings as my home layout is closely based on it, currently under construction, all the track is laid, wired up and working. Lots of research done so far but i wonder if there are still some pictures around showing aspects of the branch that i haven't seen yet and thought that maybe i could order them as back issues, your help in this respe
  11. Hello Hugh, I have both those kits unbuilt at present.... I'll scan the instructions and send them to you or i could just copy them and post them to you? Jim.
  12. Ooer! That's what i thought it was supposed to do! Lol! Thanks for the diagram Ron, my diagram isn't to hand now, I've locked my shed up but I'm sure those extra 'jumper' wires aren't shown on it, so it seems the auto switch does do the work for you in that configuration! Gee! Great! Thanks again, Best wishes, Jim.
  13. Ah! So i do need to wire in a switch..... Thank you! I was at first presuming the auto switch did all that, (Thinking that was the whole point of it!!) doh! Best wishes, Jim.
  14. Hello, It's me with another question! I have a headshunt on my layout (OO gauge) with both running rails isolated from the main layout but with droppers soldered in via the NCE auto switch wired according to the diagram, the programming track works fine when the Powercab is in programming track mode and it switches off the main layout etc as it should no problems. When the powercab is in normal use playing trains etc the headshunt is dead hence i can't drive a loco onto it, should i be wiring a switch in somewhere to liven it up while in 'normal' operation so i can swi
