  1. That is superb Tom, ridiculously good. Regards Peter
  2. Hi Tony, are those buttresses still at the end of your garden or have they been removed? Regards Peter
  3. Mallard at speed is a lovely image Tony.
  4. Good morning Tony. I would think having met you several times that your skills as a builder are of far more use than another layout. In the short time we have met at shows you have fixed / attended to many failed locomotives, you have built wagons, kindly let me suggest and interject on electrical faults with items, but most of all your introduction of children to the hobby and construction of items is second to none and a very valuable asset for any exhibition to have. Regards
  5. To everyone on here, although I am not getting any modelling done at present please keep safe and well. The standard on here is exceptional. Regards Peter
  6. Apologies did not pick up on the earlier description mentioning you are using IN5401 1844 diodes. Can I ask are you switching Point D in a sequence and if so how many Points are operated before Point D is operated? What happens if the other points are disconnected and you operate Point D on its own? None of the diodes you would suspect have failed they are simply a one way current blocking device therefore you would assume there has to be something with Point D that the CDU cannot cope with. Out of interest have you disconnected everything including the CDU, removed all power sources and tested the diodes on the board to ensure there is no leakage across them your multimeter will do this with either it set to diode or resistance? As above I apologise if I am repeating things you have tried or give the expression of teaching to suck eggs. Regards Peter
  7. I have posted this on the relevant thread as well, apologies for the duplication Tony. Good morning all Sorry to interrupt this conversation but which model of diode are you using as this is showing all the symptoms of a low level of power. I can explain more if required. Regards Peter

  9. Good evening Tony, the two track scenic section of this layout is superb, for something in theory so simple this really does capture the era. Regards Peter
  10. That must have been a record though, 19 hours! oh apart from the forum actually being down. Regards and thanks.
  11. Hello ? no post in 19hours !!!!! My iMac must be broke. Regards Peter.
  12. Now they are what you call cavity walls! Was that a standard thickness on that part of the network? Regards Peter
  13. Hi Tony, hope you and Mo have a fulfilling 2020 and catch up soon. Regards Peter
  14. Good news, have a better year in 2020 and always believe in good things and be positive. Peter
  15. Good afternoon Tom What a inspiration CWM Prysor has been to me, enough of a thought provoking layout that I am hoping to model Bala Junction in the 1950's with license to drop back to the 1930's. Thank you as I have been struggling to find somewhere with enough operational content but of an unusual nature (Bala Junction had no road access it was purely an interchange). Regards Peter
  16. Note the spotters to the right in the distance....
  17. Good evening Kevin, your layout is a real inspiration, absolutely stunning modelling. Thank you for sharing. Regards Peter
  18. Those are absolutely like the real thing great work Nick.
  19. I would like to thank Tony and Mo for their hospitality at the Portsmouth exhibition, it was our yearly catch up and most enlightening it was as well. Also "Sir" solved a N gauge loco problem or two for someone, taught me how to not mix up solders and generally pointed me in the right direction on other matters of life. Regards Peter
  20. The Df was Nikons foray into digital cameras but with a smaller body rekindling the look of the F film camera but with a full frame digital sensor. A very good camera it is too. I had a whole raft of the original Pro Olympus lenses so decided to stay with their retro offerings of the OM range. Regards Peter
  21. They really do look the part especially for that time on the network. Regards Peter
  22. I would say wonderful photos, and they are, but the first one is taken at either early morning or more probably late evening with that lovely orange glow and therefore everything looks brighter. I will try not to make this too technical but coal has a shine to it the same applies to coal dust, water with lubricating oil in it etc.etc. therefore the light at the time and the film used (that old chestnut) will cause various degrees of reflection and absorption therefore you cannot trust the colour on any film, glass plate and even an early digital camera image. All will differ if taken at the same time, place and light conditions. My advice is you model it, therefore you weather it as you see fit, do not worry about what others say. Social media and forum threads have a lot to answer for (apart from this one). Regards Peter
  23. Absolutely wonderful would love to see this for real !!! Regards Peter
  24. Hi Mick Great work, and an interesting subject to boot. Regards Peter
