  1. Hello, One thing I have noticed in all this talk. No one has mentioned the co-efficient of expansion and the role it plays combined with the current ambient temperature and fluctuations experienced over a time of a variable degree. The bottle of Australian Shiraz was rather nice as well. trustytrev.

  3. Hello, Here in Lancashire it was red brick at the rear. Only the front of houses were done in fancy stone for the sake of appearance. It could be where the phrase "Putting on a front" originated. trustytrev.
  4. Hello, Where does one get these various back to back gauges for the different OO settings? I had more than one but seem to have misplaced them. Had them ages and just when I need them they have disappeared. trustytev.
  5. Hello, Much like tanks on low loaders. From side hooks across the front and down the other side both ways to stop forward movement. If that makes any sense? Same done at the rear. trustytrev.
  6. Hello, My father was a driver in the fifties and sixties of such vehicles. Apparently every driver knew to secure sheet steel at either end as well as the sides with chains.Tales of drivers that had not where quite gruesome with regards to the driver's demise . Decapitations and bodies cut in half were the fare of many tales. trustytrev.
  7. Hello Gordon, One can never do to much testing. Better to be safe than sorry(whatever that means) trustytrev.
  8. "quality" of the results is the ultimate goal of most modellers as far as I am aware. Some have "unrealistic expectations or standards" falling into that category myself sadly.
  9. Hello Gordon, You may possibly find joining MERG helpful when considering options for layout control. I chose their DCC kits for DCC operation of locomotives and will be using CBus for layout control with JMRI. They have quite a few variable choices besides those you may find suitable. I found being a member helped me understand the technology that is currently being employed in model railways these days as well. There is a lot of information and advice available. trustytrev.
  10. Hello Martin, I think the persons wanting to use Templot need to accept it is a unique piece of software that requires one to learn as one goes. I believe too often these days people expect everything at the click of a button. However for something as complex and varied as railway track that is just an unreasonable expectation. The fact you have done what you have and made it freely available is without comparison. The Templot Club has everything covered in my opinion. The only fault with it is your own personal choice to always step up and resolve nearly all issues yourself for people. That and introducing new features are the two biggest sources of time expenditure you commit yourself to. I truly believe you are entitled to spend your time doing stuff you prefer rather than feeling obliged to continuously assist in every aspect. Best Regards. trustytrev
  11. Hello, Some stunning models of a greater variation than one would expect for such a unsung part of railways. To think stuff would have soon stopped moving without them bringing order and control. trustytrev.
  12. Hello, I was thinking about suitability with regard to the effects of the solvents on the plastic syringes. trustytrev.
  13. Hello, Do you have a link for the ones you have used please? trustytrev.
  14. Hello, And don't forget the roof. In winter condensation will freeze to the surface. When it thaws out it will rain inside. One of the reasons I have not adopted my garage. It seemed a good idea building a really big one for cars years 40 years ago but converting it into a suitable place for a layout is ruled out purely by the cost to upgrade it. Mind you I cleared all the car stuff out ages ago but it is fuller now than then. Grandchildren and their stuff take up loads of space. trustytrev.
