  2. Hi guys, since the upset of the bad health scare ,and sadly still in hospital, all goes well homeward bound tomorrow will depend what the docs say today. The time in hospital I have had time to redesign my layout with the bridge part of it, sadly Camdale and other name changes at the old place I have could with the great name Redbank West Railroad based 00 and Ho scale Redbank is where I live now . I plan to use that plastic hobby sheeting and used for advertising and election time mainly for the three modules for the station complete, will be strengthened make them very light, will keep all the curve and straight ply sections. Will start in the next couple of weeks once I am home, cant wait. There is the new track plan , good news home tomorrow hope I have a good night . Tony from down under keeping moving ahead

You get a mag with parts every fortnight going cost $2000 when finished Mark1A 1/18 scale fully working model Tony from down under keeping on moving ahead
  12. Hi Mick a favour could you change my layout name to anew but name Carmdale, many thanks .slowly improving swelling is going down Tony from cold down under.
  13. Hi Thomas, very interesting what is that white stuff you using in the mold you made up , I have a couple of cutting on my layout , we had out turn last fortnight very heavy rain. The developers have started work stage two of our estate, I will make the most of it noise wise , can't wait till they start building more houses in our street, I am busy track laying , keep the good work up . Tony from down under
  14. Have two lengths of flexi track to complete the first station module, I be working on the next two modules that make up the station complex before I start work on the bus wiring, doing the wiring different to make it easy to trace if I have an issue on the block . The first pic I have the first reverse loop in place, the other be on the last station module, I am making the most of the nice autumn weather, no rain for a week, so full steam ahead, might even be able to run a test loco from the the front platform track to the real platform track. I think I will be powering the single and double cross overs, don't have to bend over be fun, good thing is I can work on two modules at a time . Tony fomr down under keeping on moving ahead
  15. I have rewired the bus wires to the terminal bus strips , I am going to do what Andrew has done with his bus wires not used any but used the rails but soldering the rail joins with wire , wire is pretty expensive, I still need plugs on all the decking and modules . All up 20 blocks controlling three throttles by rotary switches , designed the layout o be plug and play , don't think I will go DCC at this stage, can have just as much fun with DC just more wires. Looking at the track plan the two blocks on the bridge will be isolated from the rest of the rails , will still have to run bus wires to the control panel be the only blocks, control panel is in the middle of the layout . We are having a wet Easter, heavy predicted for today and to, will sort out the morrow, no chance in getting down to the shed will sort out the blocks today , work on the ship tomorrow . Happy Easter to everyone on the forum , Tony from wet down under keep moving ahead
