  1. Hi All My challenge entry initially made excellent progress, but due to pressures of work I've done nothing on it all week. I fear that it won’t be finished or complete enough to allow entry. But I must say that the idea has started me thinking on new lines, quite literally and has enthused my modelling again, thanks RMWeb. Elisa
  2. Thank you Julie, for letting me post some of my material on your blog following the problems with loosing my phone, and thus temporally loosing control of my email account. Lisa
  3. Nice one Julie, with some tidying up and a coat of paint you will have a presentable and unusual passanger train. What colour will they be finished in? Lisa
  4. What causes the slackening of speed, whilst negotiating a curve is the flange on the wheel on the outside of the curve rail coming into contact with the inside face of said rail. That is why on the prototype the a check rail is place alongside the inner rail, to pull the wheelsets across to prevent the out wheel flange coming into contact with the rail edge. Lisa
  5. Have you concidered the Portway model, http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/81305-portwey/? Lisa
  6. Is clovelly Road going to be a pointless layout? Lisa
  7. It dosn't look like an iPhone? Lisa
  8. I think the tool has define modelling potential. Can thin plastic sheet be cut using one?
  9. Please remind me NOT to shop at Buffers!
  10. I think your layout discussion is one of the best in the boxfile section. Keep up the good work! Lisa
  11. I like it! Looks like 1963. Lisa
  12. Now you have moved the platform to the opposite side of the track, away from the goods yard. It should be possible to move the siding towards the running line, to make more room in the goods yard. Are you going to have a goods shed? Lisa
  13. How are you going to deal with the corners? Lisa
  14. The other important considerations are allowing a distance from the point crossing of the length of the driving wheels or bogie before changing gradient or cant. Finally making the transition using a transition curve. The easiest way of achieving this is to use a tongue. Like yours it is linked to the board,from which you are transitioning from at one end and is free to be bent up or down etc. as required at the other end. You will need to experiment as to who quick the transition can be and not have derailment problems. From the end of the tongue you use another piece of board to carry the track onwards. A material such a plywood will naturally form itself when bent into a transition curve. Lisa PS a tongue can start in the middle of a board too.
