Re: Signalling for Tingley Common

Thanks everyone. I'll try the following and some Vallejo and see how that goes:

Re: Signalling for Tingley Common

Right way round now and surprisingly they work. That's a small step for a finescale modeller but it's a ruddy great leap for me! I've tried in vain to add coloured lenses to the spectacles. Any suggestions? IMG_0858a.jpg Somehow the picture goes upside down when I post on the forum. (hopefully corre...

Re: Signalling for Tingley Common

I'm learning a great deal here. If I were to build again I would definitely use a single slip on the crossover but as it was my first effort I didn't want a turnout straddling a baseboard joint. I now have an exctoscale single slip in my gloat box ready to build for another time. Swapping the signal...

Re: Signalling for Tingley Common

Thanks Noel. That helps a great deal. I'm amazed how complicated/intricate signalling in reality is, unlike the simple explanations you get in some modelling books. I'll re-check my small collection of GNR signal pictures. Something as simple as signal arms I've never seen mentioned in books or perh...

Re: Signalling for Tingley Common

Many thanks Noel. The photo is correct so that's probably my first mistake..(b....r). The diagram is the best I could do with my computer skills but I can try and add some numbers. Thanks, Howard.

Signalling for Tingley Common

A friend of mine has given me suggestions for signalling arrangements on my layout. I didn't want anything over complicated as my knowledge is limited but I wanted something fairly plausible. As signal building is now in progress (as can be seen) I wondered if anyone could check out the suggested pl...

My plank so far...

If only to prove to myself that I have made some progress over the last couple of years! My first effort in P4 but still a long way to go. It's all wired up for analogue but I bought an NCE Powercab and have so far chipped two locos. Probably going to be a steep learning curve. Fiddleyards/cassette ...
