Wow! Almost speechless to see what you have achieved here.

Can not wait to see it as a completed layout.

Re: Next out of the TTG workshop........

Doug,

Looking like just what I will be needing. I am trying to get my layout back on track and will be needing a rail bridge to go over a canal, and looks like one of these will mean I do not have to build it from scratch. Keep us up to date with progress.

Re: 3D modeling tool

I have only ever used SketchUp, as I thought it better to stick with one and really learn it rather than try to master numerous packages. As you say, SketchUp does have minimum sizes, but there are tricks you can use. My models were all create at 1000x, and then using a documented trick with (if my ...

Re: Ilkley Layout

Love what you are doing here, some great modelling.

Knowing this area well (we were walking round Ilkley yesterday in the rain!) it is great to see the details being added and being modelled so acurately on what is actually there around the station.

Re: Ilkley Layout

This modification to the points looks so logical that it is suprising they are not sold to this format. Having never actually tried it myself, I could only assume the thinking is that there is not enough strength left in the points for a commercial offering unless all the rail sections are left long...

Re: Ilkley Layout

Yes, very good looking buildings. I do know these buildings, and you have captured them well. Hard to believe that Ilkley was at one time a through station not a terminus, and that a good number of the buildings you have modelled were only able to be built after the tracks to Skipton, and the bridge...

Re: Box Model "Viaduct"

Well I always like to learn something from posts here when I can and I did here from your earliest image - just had a Doh! moment seeing how you had curved the foam board. If only I had see that before making a curve using numerous cut up straight pieces! Other that that lesson, some excellent model...

Re: Forum still very quiet

For an update from me - which does seem to happen only when someone starts a thread such as this - is that I have just recently ordered and received a PWM controller. I had designed my own and written the code and ordered the electronics - but that never got beyond flash lights becuase I never compl...

Great to see the layout running so well Doug. You are continuing to push forward what can be done in T. Just need some decent points now then so many more layout options will become avaialble! I noticed you have on e of my 'Corgi' Autin Cambridges outside the station in the video. Does this ever gen...

Re: Chassis dimensions?

Very impressive the level of testing you have done here to work out what settings you will need in your code. I had started a similar exercise with an Arduino, but so far mine just flashes LEDs to indicate output, as I have not yet had chance to add the electronics needed to drive a motor. I have se...

Re: Where has everybody gone?

For me it has been down to time, or at least lack of it... I have been working longer hours recently which leaves me less time for either creating 3d models, or getting stuck in and doing any actual modelling. Add to that the reduced desire to set up do any modelling when it is cold where I will be ...

Good work Doug, very keen to see where this goes. I have been quiet on T gauge for a while, but seeing a good method for building points that really do work could get my layout plans back on track.

I am dangerously close to being able to show a photo of my layout, which is completed as far as having a complete loop of track. I tried to photograph this with my phone but that did not produce anything worthy of showing, so that will have to wait until I use a proper camera. In the meantime I have...

I have just sent another order off to Shapeways. This was an order I put together quickly whilst it would still qualify for the free postage offer for own designs only, which ended yesterday. In the batch were various assorted items, but for T it included reprints of the Kubelwagens I had printed ea...

Re: Pennsylvania 4-6-2 Steam Locomotive.

This brings up the question to everyone, what do you think it is made of? Joe, I was wondering on this myself. The only coloured prints I have has done at Shapeways are in Full Colour Sandstone. This material has quite a large minimum wall thickness and detail size, but more significantly the colou...

I have finally got round to photographing some my rolling stock that I have painted and fitted on chassis. Two for now, with a couple more to come soon. First up is the Nuclear Flask Wagon. I painted this with Vallejo acrylics (my paint of choice for Shapeways FUD) and used an adjustable chassis. Fo...
