Re: Happy Birthday TalkingTGauge.net

A belated happy birthday from me :)

I still check the forums to see what's been happening but haven't been able to do much with my layout from lack of time.
Hoping to do some more soon.

Re: T-gauge for sale

Always a shame to loose a T gauger (Far to few of us) but it's good to pass the torch (T Gauge bits :) ) to someone else.

Where about's in south London are you?

Re: Who's doing what???

I'm still wanting to try and do a class 73, Just finding time.

Got very close to ordering a Form1 3D printer but wasn't sure how much duty I'd have to pay on top to ship to the UK (Keep hoping there'll be an importer).

I've been using some noch flock.
Have two greens and a brown. I mix some amounts together so it looks a bit more natural.


Finally painted the girders, next is the other abutment.

Re: Little Tee

More fading signs of once prosperous times :D

The grass is still a bit wet so has a light colour at the moment.

Re: Layout Base Material

I've used some MDF (not sure if it has same name in the US).
Is cheap, strong, easy to cut etc.

Works well with watered PVA glue, doesn't balloon up. Unless you get it really wet.

That's a very nice brick finish. What have you used to achieve it?
I downscaled some N gauge brick styles.
I did the main structure in card then glued the printed brick on.

Embankment starting to build up.

Re: unnamed

Thanks Doug, That was a very fiddly task.
Think the strips of plasticard where about 1mm and a pain to glue down :evil:

Next step is adding the brickwork before glueing down then building up the embankments.

Re: SD70M - Powered

Looking really good.

Not sure if copper would be the best though, it doesn't have much spring.
Saw this company mentioned on rmweb for etching, http://www.ppdltd.com/web_site_3/page_1_intro.html

Little Tee

Thought I'd finally get a layout topic going, no name yet. Inspiration came from a now gone line near Manchester. http://www.penmorfa.com/Wrexham/ten.html http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z184/Alex-Cami/T%20Gauge/IMAG0180.jpg http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z184/Alex-Cami/T%20Gauge/IMAG0255.jpg...
