Re: Level crossing uk

Has anyone considered making walkways / sidewalks? We have buildings and streets so why not? I know nothing of 3D printing but I don't think it would be to hard. :)

Re: wiring

Thanks guys,

My layout will be 6 ft by 3 ft so am thinking each block will be about 7 ft long in 28-30 ft of track. Still short yes but I think doable. I'll just be flipping switches a lot :)

Re: wiring

Upon looking around the internet I think I found how to wire 1 cab for each train. If I understand it correctly I would take the wires from cab A and run them to the bottom posts of a dpdt switch. Then run wires from cab B to the top posts. The wires from the track go to the center posts. I would do...

Re: wiring

OK, I understand that. So here is what I would have: Block 1 would be at the station for train #1, the block just a bit longer than the train. Block 2 would be the loop going west. Block 3 would be at the station for train #2 and block 4 would be the loop going east. Right? So with both trains stopp...

Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this but I need help.

re-railer?

Has anyone come up with an in track re-railer for flex track? Maybe have it look like a level crossing like other scales do.

Re: Newbie

It was a 5VDC, 2.1A charger. After it cooled down I tried a 5VDC, 1A charger and it seemed to be OK. So it seems that I had to many amps. Live and learn,just happy that I can still use it :)

Re: Newbie

Well found out you can't use a mobile phone charger on the blue pwm. Can still use the batteries but something burned inside and can't use the usb cord. Oh well :(

Received my flex track and am deciding on a layout. I'm going to use double sided tape to hold it down and would like to know if I should tape the whole track or just every 6" or so. Its heavy duty tape so once down it would be very hard to take back up. Thanks for the help.

Re: Newbie

Unfortunately Tgauge is out of stock on the ballast so was hoping there was something else that could be used.

Re: Newbie

OK guys, will be receiving my trains within the next day or so and have another question, or two :D Been reading where most of you glue your flex track down and some of you use double-sided tape.

Hi All, As the title says I'm new to T gauge so will be coming here with questions. I'd like to thank Martink for all the help he has given me so far. Due to downsizing I'm moving from N to T. Will be ordering things in the next few days as soon as I have decided on which layout I'm going to use. Wa...
