Thanks Ade, Your right re the Droppers etc.

I have modified the Points, and have used the wires as Droppers for the Track Feed. Because the two outer Rails are constant  with Isolators on the Frogs, then I link across at the Buffer to feed the Rails beyond the Isolators, and the wiring there will be hidden under Foliage.

 

I hope this diagram helps to explain it better mate.

 

Probably! It’s all witchcraft at the moment only ever used the track clip and insulated frogs, but that’s about to change on my new Meldon layout, fingers crossed.

Cheers for the explanation.

I forgot to post up the pics of the holder for the Gaugemaster Prodigy Controller. It just slides in from behind, and the holder is part of the lifting flap.

I know what you mean about two days Trevor, I used to enjoy exhibiting and especially a two day Show, but now I find even at a one days Show, I'm forever sitting down and resting, then go and look at a couple more bits, then rest again.

I also find the Floors are harder on the old feet than I remember them back in the day, haha.:fie::laugh:

 

It is our club show this weekend quite a big one about 35 layouts so I will be on duty for the full two days. I am skipping set up on friday as my back hasn't fully recovered from a fall but will be helping with breakdown on Sunday. I note I am rostered for two hours on the doors  first thing both days so at least I will get a sit down then. Not sure what else I am rostered to do. With such a big show over several halls all the club members will be pretty busy.

Thanks Mike, I've a busy few days coming up, so work on here will slow down considerably, especially now that it's up and running, and although I will be posting pics and Videos on New Mills, the Videos were done earlier today, and will be Up Loaded over the coming days and the New Mills pics are from the archives, although I will try and get some more tomorrow.

 

I should be back on here some time in the next week.:good:

I had a nice visit from Peter BB this evening and we had a good running session on New Mills, (more details over in that Thread), and we also had a short session on here, and Peter seemed to like Cadley Hill a lot.:good:

Exactly right Andy, especially about the floors! Warley seems particularly bad. Like the way you've fitted the controller in; quite often on layouts its an afterthought and becomes a problem to fit it in somewhere. Trevor

No more Up Dates for a bit young Craig, I have a busy weekend ahead of me and also need to start stripping out the shelving in TOPS soon.

 

Remember Deesdale Road started at 4.5ft and ended up 22ft, haha.

Sorry - you are not including TOPS in the sale as is?  I would have thought it was the stand out feature.  After all TOPS has some fame attached to it - it has probably housed more layouts than every other backyard shed combined!

 

May be you should be selling TOPS with a house added in.

At this rate it will be sold by Friday. :D

 

 

Oh dear Mike, Your R I G H T.:o:fie::cry:

 

Peter BB came around last night and talked me into parting with it, and so I have JUST DELIVERED it to him.:this:

 

I hope he enjoys it as much as he has enjoyed, Loch Leven, Fiddlers Yard, Deesdale Road and Swad Lane, although I didn't build the latter.

He still has Deesdale on the Exhibition Circuit.:good:

Wow!

That WAS quick!

Such is your fame, Andy that your next layout may be sold before you've started it!!!

Congratulations to Peter BB too.

Cheers,

John.

Turn your back for 5 minutes and its running and sold! :D:D

Sorry, yeah, but no, but yeah, I'm sure Peter will show you all what he is doing to it over time, but maybe not as quick as me, as he is a busy man.

I just wish I had a quarter of your building speed. My layout is coming along as slow as molasses as they say in the deep south and I don't mean Hastings :D:D

Oh good grief! Built & sold in the time it's taken me to put down some underlay. ;)  I thought this was the one to keep! :scratch_one-s_head_mini:

Couldn't you get Peter BB to take New Mills, don't want that to go out in bits...
