  1. Hi, I'm a serial collector of second hand unused points from my local shop. I have some code 75 in good condition but only one each LH and RH. I don't have anything in the pipeline in OO so you would be welcome to them for the price of postage. I'm sure they are small..... But just in case... Sorry its not two RH, but let me know if you need them. Good luck, James
  2. Hi, Speaking as someone who is starting out in O gauge with a shunting layout soon (ish).... I know you are an advocate of using the DCC80 for polarity switching on OO gauge layouts - have you used them on here? Or is the 2 amp limit not enough? I like the idea of using something like them and switching the points wire in the tube. Regards, James
  3. Hi Richard, Hope all is well with you....like the new additions, you are definitely utilising the 3D printer! Love the blackboard - looks great. all the best, James
  4. Thanks, You might have to wait a little bit as I need to move on a OO layout to make space. Until then I'll get my fix here. With regard to your location I have spent many a happy summers day in Angelsey just above you. We have friends that live in Newborough. We did wonder down as far as Pwlheli on the mainland but not as far as you yet! Cheers, James
  5. Hi, I will be following your progress with interest - I'm dipping my toe into 7mm and have roughly the same space. I want to go down one side of my shed and have 11.5' by 2' - I was thinking the fiddle yard might have to be out the door but you have illustrated it might be possible to keep it all within the 11.5' length. Anyway good luck - your progress so far is impressive. Regards, James
  6. Hi, This is really spooky but I have been sussing out a 2 foot extension to my new layout (not on here yet) this very afternoon. I was doing a river but I have some scenic width the other side of the bridge (the exact same wills one!) so I decided on a canal so I can do a lock against the back scene. I came in to look at the scalescenes site for some dimensions and your thread happened to be the last page I looked at on chrome the other day. So there were your efforts for me to look at! Looks really good.... And I have some left over ratio platform bits too
  7. Hi Stu, I'd love to see some photos of Shelfe Street - I've done a search (including a google one) and I don't seem to be able to find any - only glowing references! There are some of the entry point in this thread, and some more of the other end I think, but I'd like to see the track plan if I could. This sort of thing is right up my street - not too big a project - you can concentrate on detail - you don't need a massive stud of locos and wagons - and you can run a variety of stock and change the road vehicles to suit different eras. cheers,
  8. Hi again, Can I ask - has Shelfe Street got a thread? I can search lots of references but I don't seem to be able to find a thread of its own? Do you have a pic of it? Regards, james
  9. Hi, Love this layout - I think it would scale up to 7mm well too - but I feel I'd have trouble replicating this standard! I hope the comment about the track when it was code 100 was made in the right way - by a friend - otherwise it sounds pretty rude to me. Yes you have definitely improved the look with the new track - but it was impressive with the code 100 too. and I've only just realised you are responsible for Portwey too - another fantastic small space layout. Thanks for sharing - lots of inspiration in your work. Regards,
  10. Hi Bill, Thanks for that, much appreciated, there is something about a roundie! Although I've not done one since! I'm glad it has provided you with some ideas and inspiration....I look forward to seeing your efforts. All the best, James
  11. Starter layout Hi, See link above (hopefully it works). Way back I dipped my foot back into model railways with a layout the same size as yours - it does not have a island platform - but utilises curved set-track points and code 100 track. I also wanted one half scenic and one half for storage. It obviously stretches reality a bit - but provided hours of fun - building and operating. It might provide you with some useful information. all the best, James
  12. Thanks for the tips - I'll also be interested in your 108 build....so I will be staying tuned! Hopefully I'll have a Dapol 122 DMU soon (which will require much less effort)! Regards, James
  13. Hi, From the evidence presented on this thread you look to be a dab hand at this. I'm new to O gauge and new to soldering (other than track feeds) and kit bashing. I have some RTR O gauge stuff and a couple of donor big big train hymeks (my favourite loco). I realise it is difficult to look on something with someone else's eyes (and hands), but did you find the conversion using the PRMRP kit a straightforward one? Or should I practice a bit more on other projects first? Regards, James
  14. hi, I'm thinking the same - I'm going down the card platform and scalescenes brick paper faces. I managed to 'mask' the platform position quite well while spreading the ballast - to get a decent edge to my final ballasting - I can then add the card walls, varnish, and then fill in gaps with neat pva and ballast. Regards, james
  15. I see I have the gold medallion now! Many thanks Andy. regards, james
