  1. Hi gavino, i m not sure what type the wagon is to be honest but I m sure Jeff will tell us once he sees this. yes there will be extra sets of decals for every body to take a set each to replicate the original or to just put on one of their own cars, there ll be a brief,simple instruction sheet in the box for us all to see what’s what,not wishing to insult anybody s intelligence but just s we all know what we re doing.πŸ‘πŸ˜€
  2. Do nt forget to photo it jeff ha ha and a stamp on the box. looking forward to getting this kicked off buddy πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜€
  3. The world atlas poster arrived today,it’s 3x2ft and I ll use it to map its route around the world. when complete I ll post it on here for anyone who wants to print it offπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜€
  4. What did you do on your layout today?

    Hi Tim, on their way,may take a while, my Internet is crap and I ve sent 3or4 emails with 4 photos in each πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  5. What did you do on your layout today?

    Gents, The other issue I forgot to mention this morning is that be carefull when you re putting the accessories into the holes on the plates,they re really tight going in and if you need to remove anything coz you ve put it in the wrong place then it will more than likely snap at the base,very easy to put things in the wrong place,as you said this morning the instructions are nt very clear. A little tip,which is what I did 2nd time around,is that I opened the holes up very slightly then when they were finished and I knew they were right I glued everything into the holes,bit fiddly but nothing got broken.

    Sam, One of my options was to make my own usin the Busch adhesive roadway but to make something similar in style to the kato places would cost me Β£46 with delivery,the rd plates are Β£50, Altho the Busch stuff is top quality it wo nt look as good as the kato stuff.

    And for what it’s worth imho that station you both have is crying out for the road plates,they will look superb on o module in front of that.
  9. What did you do on your layout today?

    Morning gents, i m a big fan of the road plates and was talking yesterday ti serotta about them,mine are quite badly damaged after some issues with them bucklingcand having been moved 3 times.my options are to replace them,repair them or do my own thing,I m going to attempt to repair them but if not I ll buy new. just a word of warning,be aware that if exposed to heat they expand quite a lot and will buckle if fastened down with glue.If you need to fix them in place I would suggest a flexible adhesive that will stretch with them,like silicone or similar or even blue tac will hold them as they re not very heavy
  10. Cleaning and maintaining your train

    For what it’s worth I ve had some experience with chemicals and isopropyl.I used to use track majic to clean my tracks but it s very expensive if you have a fairly large layout so I did a bit of digging to discover that the base ingredient is alcohol cleaner,isopropyl. I bought a litre bottle off eBay and I now use that as a track cleaner.I have also used it to clean the plastics,for example the kato road plates and it was fine,but they re not painted surfaces,they re moulded in that colour.Not sure if this helps you any mate but I d do as Jeff sugested,try it on an area you can t see,I would not soak it though,I d clean it with swabs or rags and dry it off, paul
  11. How did you improve your rolling stock?

    When this train first came out I thought it was a bit expensive,I still do,but when you see the detailing as you ve just pointed out,it truly is a wonderfully detailed train and goes some way to justifying the price tag. good job on the lights sammyπŸ‘πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
  12. How did you improve your rolling stock?

    I know what you mean squid,I had one where the motor had gone and with the help of Martijn I managed to identify the correct replacement motor and then successfully fitted it myself! Probably no big deal to some and maybe not that hard to do but when you ve never done it before it s a challenge.Like you I felt quite pleased with myself ha haπŸ‘πŸ˜€
  13. How did you improve your rolling stock?

    The four viaduct tracks are a bit noisy but the ground level tracks there s hardly any noise as it’s all laid on foam and polystyrene,plus I try not to run them really fast anyway,tho I do try to keep it in proportion,shinkansens the fastest,express a bit slower,etc etc.
  14. How did you improve your rolling stock?

    Well at least you got some and you know it’s on it’s way. i got 1” diameter as there ll be at least 23 point motors so needed a fairly big one. i ve brought the cables out central so I can have the desk anywhere I want now.
