Re: Royal Quay

Thanks for the thoughts so far guys. While this is a dock railway, then name is a combination of a couple of London docks, West India Quays and the Royal docks. PLA had a quite large internal railway system and quite a bit of it was away from the water. I've had yet another iteration of the design. ...

Re: Royal Quay

PLA seems to have had a "standard" track arrangement that was repeated several times down a row of warehouses. It's a back to back pair of crossovers. http://i558.photobucket.com/albums/ss28/doctordalek2/pla_track_arrangement_zpscasjbmvp.png Long term I think this could be extended to incl...

Royal Quay

So I've got a name for the layout, but not a great deal else. I'm doing this for the MRC's layout challenge as well as the SGW, so it needs to be 4'x1'. I haven't ever really cared for BR steam, but I rather like the wagons. So here's the idea. Port of London Authority c.1960. Lots of inlaid track a...

While ebay is the easiest way of getting one it's still not easy. Branchlines do an etched chassis for the Gem kit, they also do a complete kit with the Gem body and Gibson wheels. This is the route I'm planning on going down in a month or two.

Re: Tim V's workbench

How do you get on with the Dingham couplers? I'm finding the constant need for adjustment of AJs increasingly frustrating and have been considering a change.

Replacement Rods

I will shortly begin converting a Bachmann 45xx from OO to EM. Not liking the look of the Bachmann rods I got a replacement set designed by Bill Bedford. Everything looks good except that I'm not sure what a couple of the bits are. From top to bottom we have connecting rods and then main rods. The m...

Re: Starting out in DCC

The Gaugemaster system is a repackaging of the MRC (Model Rectifier Corp) system of the same name. It may be worth looking for reviews under that name. I haven't used the Prodigy Advance myself, but I have used both the PowerCab and Digitrax's Zephyr. Of the two I prefer the PowerCab. It is very int...
