    Good work. And you are right , such lovely weather that we are having at the moment - nice to work outside.

    Lovely shot Paul. Judging by the clothes and the chocolate treats, this is taken just after school when they are always ravenous and need further entertainment. I know that situation well!

    Top stuff again Paul. That acetate sheet has a myriad of uses it seems :)

    Thanks Paul. Those figures do look a cut above the cheaper ones from China.

    Looks good Paul As to the figures do you buy the cheap bags of 100 and paint or touch them up? Also I see that they are on small pieces of plastic - how do you fix the figures to the plastic?

    Extending buildings

    Thanks kvp. That sounds a useful and worthwhile solution - with the added bonus that I have some in my shed at the moment!
  9. I have acquired a few Tomix buildings which can be stacked in configurations of 2, 3 and 5 storeys (probably higher if other kits involved) In line with the convention of being able to re-figure layouts etc, does anyone know or use any glue/fixative that I can use to keep them together, yet allows them to be taken apart easily should i want to make them smaller or combine with other units? Preferably something that can be bought in the UK

    What did you order or the post deliver?

    Latest ebay purchases to help fill the spaces. Grandson has already populated the garage, but not sure how we will fit in the yellow one.

    New L shaped layout

    New L shaped layout

    As i mentioned in my other topic 'Beginning to get somewhere', circumstances have left me severely restricted on the space available for a layout. I have an area which is L shaped measuring 1550mm on one leg and 1700mm on the other. (the 1700 may be extendable to create longer sidings) I like the idea of 2 trains running and so the oval part of the layout is 2 tracks - maybe i should have only one but I am sticking with 2 for the moment. When I started a couple of years ago, I purchased a few 6 car trains and these may be too long for my projected layout, so I may have to just drop a car or two, even tho not 'correct'. Also the lengths of the sidings may not be sufficient to store 6 car trains. So I have come up with a layout which allows for 2 oval tracks, one end point station, one siding within the oval and a group of sidings off the outer oval for further storage. I have used the trial version of Anyrail and so restricted to 50 pieces, but the ends of the sidings would just be extended with further straights. The station would be within the oval in the off the northern, probably set in a commercial area. The eastern part of the oval would be apartments/commercial. The southern part of the L shape would be a mixture of low rise residential and railway type buildings. i attach a screen shot as i don't seem able to include the Anyrail file. Any comments gratefully received.

    Beginning to get somewhere

    Thanks for that advice @railsquid

    Beginning to get somewhere

    I cannot believe that it is nearly a year since i posted.. I have taken a regular interest in other members posts but my own work has slipped, mainly for good family reasons. In June of this year my daughter and family moved to just a few streets away and we now have the joy of seeing our grandchildren more often, although I now spend time painting and decorating. However this has led to me losing the facility of the dining table for developing a layout and i have no where else large enough. Consequently, most stuff has been boxed away. I have now been able to put up a small table top of 150cm by 65cm and create a small layout. Looking at the space available i might be able to get up to 165 by 800, which will help when creating sidings, and I might be able to get a portion of it L-shaped. That will need a bit of work on AnyRail. But at least now my 4 year old grandson can have an interest and we can leave it up permanently (and he seems particularly interested in buildings) and we have a had a few hours just messing about. A couple of photos show how he likes to cram the buildings onto the layout and his cute idea of how to park cars! The out of scale figure is his 2 year old sisters contribution. So in a way I am beginning to get somewhere again.
