Well, I gotta take my hat off to you Ron,

You've accomplished in a couple of months what it's taken me a couple of years to do although I did have a rather large false start.:mutley
Excellent, you must be over the moon with that result.

Great pictures and the Digitracks controller looks the B@ll@ck$.

I'll look forward to more pictures of the same please. Great result

:pathead:pathead:pathead

Cheers

Toto

Trouble is, I've spent more time playing (sorry operating!) than fixing track and soldering droppers!! Still that's what it's all about isn't it??





Cheers
Ron

Got to tackle a bit of a problem today, when I set a rake of coaches on the main platform line they slowly ran down the line to the layout end!! It is only a very small gradient but enough to cause future problems I think with 'run-rounds' and shunting so!
I'm going to remove or slacken all the screws at the lower end and using a car-jack as support slowly lift that end. I will leave a rake of coaches on the line to check the gradient (and a spirit level!) then re-screw all the screws to the new height. I'm sure its only 5-6 mm but best do it now! Will update you later on!!

Cheers
Ron

PS; the electrics are working fine, just a few more droppers to do!

Good stuff, sounds like a plan. Better getting these things sorted now.

Seems to have done the trick, no more 'rolling' stock! Also got some storage space until I tackle the 'bridge'!!



(not sure why it's turned sideways!)



Or this one!!

Cheers
Ron

How much did you have to lift it Ron ?

With modern rolling stock - metal wheels and fine bearings - the track has to be dead level if you want to leave the stock sitting there - unless of course, you want to build some "OO" scale brakes ..................:cheers

About 6mm Peter and adjust the legs! Glad I discovered this early!!
The modern rolling stock moves very easily as you say!

Cheers
Ron

Could have made it a hump yard:mutley

Still, great idea to get it resolved by just easing the jack up a bit at a time.

Cheers

Toto.

It does indeed. I was given a new B set but when it worked on the branch an automatic uncoupling routine that had worked for years failed:sad: the Kadee shuffle still worked, the loco moved clear and the coaches gently rolled back an inch and recoupled :shock:

So I put the old stock back and all was well

Good move getting that fixed Ron:thumbs

More info on the site:
Weybourne station is a mix and match site. The main station building, which was built in 1900 and opened in 1901, is largely in its original form. Whilst the majority of the station buildings on the M&GN were built in a number of standard styles, Weybourne station was unique. This may be because of the large hotel, the 'Weybourne Springs Hotel' which was built nearby and in the same timescale. The hotel was a baroque building and was intended to cater for the 'upper class'. However it was never successful and was demolished in 1940. The signal box at Weybourne was originally at Holt whilst the waiting room on platform 1 is a faithful replica of the original building, which stood in this location. During the Second World War, Weybourne served the large Army camp which was on the site now occupied by the Muckleburgh collection.

The station was also used in a 'Dad's Army' episode called the Royal Train.

Ron

Two things today, ordered some points from Hatton's for the fiddle yard and a trip to the 'Range' to get glue,paint and card plus Polyfilla in order to start some scenics soon. Also spent the afternoon wiring the 'bridge' and running trains, although the A4 seems sick!! Hope Tom sorts his short out !!:)

Cheers
Ron

Hi Ron,

Great to see you are now having some fun after all the hard work you have put in. Just rewards I'd say. Great stuff.:thumbs

Which parts of the scenics have you in mind for starting first ?



Cheers

Toto
