Re: Toms New Line

Thank you GWR. I still find it odd that I have him listed in my contacts on my phone and yet cannot bring myself to remove the entry.

Re: Mamod Stirling

At those prices you may as well spend the money on a RH. I agree Tom nostalgia has a big part to play as I grew up with Mamod steam engines and I am a collector of their previous stationery steam engines.

Hi Ron,

Apart from being a larger radius, 38" curves also have the advantage of matching Peco's points, which should make life easier...

Cheers,

Re: My circular layout

Very tidy work there.... it looks as though you have used 3 x 2 studding which is probably not treated against rot. Have you used preservative where the wood is in the ground? Hi Peter yes I have used 3x2 studding which has been treated at my local timber merchants. I know the wood does look light ...

Where boards join, particularly along their length, there will inevitably be expansion and contraction as they get wet and dry out. This is where it is useful to have felt so that the ballast doesn't separate and show straight lines.

Re: My circular layout

This morning I managed to get my posts concreted while it’s mild outside, also soil has been spread over the top of the concrete to protect it. Battons have been fixed in place for extra strength and support. Once all set treated boards will be fitted around the edges and on the top for the track be...

Underlay or gravel

Hi I need some advice. When I come to lay my track on wooden boards do I use roofing felt before laying the track or do I lay the track and just ballast it. One more question if I use roofing felt do I fix it down with adhesive or felt nails. :scratch:

Having any size railway is better than no railway at all.

At least you will finish it!
Thanks tom_tom_go I’m in unknown territory but I’m certain a small bit of progress each time I will conquer my layout build.
