  1. Thanks guys, Most locos are DCC Sound and I can't envisage operating more than 4 locos at any one time. Although there may be another couple standing. I'll have to see what current they are drawing and do some sums! Cheers Clive
  2. Hi All, As I embark on the re development of Lyneworth and Millhampton I'm wondering about whether I need to use boosters due to the larger size of the layout. I'm using a Digitrax DCS 210+ Command station, OO Gauge with streamline Code 100 track. Ive estimated that overall there is about 35m of actual track (I'm sure @Harlequin will correct me if I'm far out on this!). Will the single DCS 210+ be enough for this or should I look at putting boosters in. I am looking at setting up several power districts so adding a booster wouldn't be a huge problem if it is necessary. Thoughts? Clive
  3. Hi Everyone, Been a bit tied up with family stuff but the decision has now been made. I'm going to go ahead and "attempt" Harlequins two level idea. The shed arrives next week so I can clear the garage out and then work will start in earnest. I'll keep everyone updated with pics and stuff as I go along, I'll probably start a fresh thread for it as soon as I get going! Thanks everyone for their input so far, feels like a real communal layout already! Clive

  5. Absolutely fine by me Phil. I'm having to put all on a back burner for a bit due to eldderly parent problems, but hope to be back "on track" soon. Clive
  6. Wow! That's impressive! That would definitely stretch my skills but it's very tempting. I was struggling a bit to get where you were going with this - but I can see it clearly now. This needs thought! Clive
  7. Average size, mobility fine (mostly lol)
  8. I've run this by my joiner friend and he says it's not a problem to make it stable and secure. Room wise, I think there should be but it will restrict a little the depth of the baseboards around Lyneworth station itself.
  9. Hi Yes it is. Harlequin and Chimer are setting me straight on a lot of things, and I now want to understand more of where they are coming, and the reasons why certain things are a certain way. Clive
  10. A combination of a roundy double mainliner and an A to B Branch mainly passenger with a small goods area
  11. Agree. This is certainly going more towards my original vision modified to reality! Clive
  12. Hadn't thought about a peninsular, but very doable!
  13. Hi David, Predominantly late stema early diesel - but with the inevitable "non-era" intruders!! Clive
  14. Brilliant! That sounds like just what I need! Thankyou
  15. Hi all, As a Newbie planning a layout I keep coming across problems as I'm not sure on the way railways work. The ways trains run, timetables slip directions etc. Does anyone know of a book that covers this type of info? Cheers Clive
