Re: New T Gauge products from Eishindo

I saw the pic on facebook earlier. Lots of good stuff in there. Shame there aren't any close up photos. The steam loco is very interesting. I've got so many questions for it, is it powered, what wheel arrangement, how feasible will it be to replace the body with a 3d printed UK prototype? Looking fo...

Re: The next train arriving at Platform One is.....

Ooooo. Is that 3D printed and coloured as part of the 3d printing process??? That would open up a world of possibilities for T!

LED Street Lighting on my layout

I found recently on eBay someone selling 1:500 scale LED street lighting. It was direct from China so the price was super cheap. I thought I'd order some, well 30 of them, only £15 with free P+P!!! They arrived today and I have now installed 13 of them so far and I have to say I am very impressed. ...

New and quick 3d tech

Some sort of new 3d technology involving pools of resin and UV light. Looks like it could make things in T gauge really quickly. Doesn't say what price range this device will be though, which is a shame. http://www.3ders.org//articles/20150317-carbon3d-introduces-breakthrough-clip-technology-for-lay...

What track to get

I'm starting a new layout and I intend to use flexi-track instead of the set track this time, so I can have nice wide corners and not have a join ever 50mm. What track should I go for though? The grey sleepers or the brown ones? Has anyone compared them? Which do you prefer?

Re: Raising awareness for T Gauge Model Railway

Also need variants like "T-Gauge" "T Scale", "T-Scale" etc. The forum doesn't have anything in the keywords meta tag of its html code. If you bung in T Gauge and the variants in the meta tags of the html code then it should increase its position in search results. It won't be instantaneous but it wi...

Re: Handheld PWM controller question

I'll get one and probably bodge a power cable into it anyway. My stuff is all powered by a USB hub to make it easier, can't be bothered with batteries.

Thanks for the replies.

Handheld PWM controller question

Does the small handheld PWM contoller have to be powered by batteries or does it have a socket to run it from a transformer or USB like the larger controller?

I visit the forum whenever a new post is put up but I am terrible for being a lurker and rarely posting.

Re: Atlas Conductalube

I've got my contactalube now. Its soooo easy to apply to wheels and contacts with its needle. It even got my 2 103 units to run (though not reliably but better than it was before).

Re: Atlas Conductalube

I've ordered some of this now. Can't seem to find it for sale in the UK so I had to get it from the states on eBay. I'm looking forward to being able to poke this into my tunnel areas where the pen can't reach. (Damn that sounds dodgy).

Re: Milton Keynes MRS Exhibition (UK)

I saw you there but didn't get a chance to chat, you seemed very busy explaining to people about it at the time.

Layout was looking very good! It was all running so well as well, I can never seem to get my stuff running that well and reliably. Loved the painted sleepers.

Re: My unnamed guitar case layout is finished

I love those terraced houses! Ordered myself some and a few of yeswacs other items aswell! If you wanted to light them up, you could try making an inner lining out of card with window holes to stop light leaking out so much. What have you used for your pavements and roads? They look great.

Re: My unnamed guitar case layout is finished

Towers , the white painted Terrace houses that you used are they the ones from Shapeways Yeswac's T Gauge Models . If so how were they to use and paint etc. They are indeed Yeswacs terraced houses, the shops on the street are Yeswac's too. I used a few buildings from Shapeways. They were relatively...
