Re: North Elmham NNAG Layout

:) I had a very busy work day on Thursday but Denis, John L and Tim D came over to lay the first part of the trackwork which Denis and Tim have been working on over the last few months. John C has been cracking on with wagons so it's good to see another bit of progress! North Elmham boards Tim D Joh...

Re: Test track working evening

Some more progress on the test track last week by us, I'd laser cut some Peco O gauge flexi track down the centre so we could space them out to scale seven with thanks to Richard for the loan of his track gauges. I'll also do this with the N gauge track to give us 2mm :) Test Track TJH01 September 2...

Re: New Area Group

John and I had a few hours today laying the first pieces of track on the test track here at my unit at Fakenham. This will be available to members as well. It was good to see various gauges other than P4 in the group, certainly seems to be quite a bit of experience too. Looking forward to the next m...

Re: Home made laser cut sleeper sections

I've recently cut 10,000 Irish sleepers for the stores, and over 6,000 for another customer so I've now got a bit of experience with the process. You will always get a bit of waste, the biggest hassle is keeping the sheet material flat. Its easier to do a couple of hundred sleepers at a time using b...
