been doing some buildings for this side of the layout,   metcalfe , Kestrel , the buildings at the front are kestrel and are a bit smaller then the metcalfe ones at the rear, does the kestrel ones  look out of size ? not sure if it looks right . what do you think ?   cheers bob

Hello Bob,
By putting in the smaller buildings at the back, you could create a "forced perspective" and increase the apparent depth of your scene where the smaller things are, the further away they seem which is the opposite on the real world where the  further away things are, the smaller  they seem. Bigger scale modellers could have OO people, cars and buildings in the foreground and HO items in the back to give a subtle illusion of depth in the same way!

However it is your railway and you have shown excellent choices in your scenery combinations and we are interested in what you show us when you have made your decision!

Regards from Melbourne

Trevor

I must admit when I saw the original track plan / track laid on the board, I was not hopeful for the layouts potential.

Having now seen the layout nearly finished I am very, very Impressed, I particularly like the two sided nature of the layout which I've not seen done before.:doublethumb



The only thing I don't like... that mains adaptor plugged into the socket, there are much safer ways of getting more sockets...

Hi Q,

Being an electrician from way back, I can understand your concern. However the current draw of a model train transformer is extremely low at the mains level.

For example 20VAC no load for the transformer output at 1 amp before rectifying and loaded under the current draw of the train would equal 20 watts.  Because transformers are highly efficient (circa 95%) the power in is only slightly higher than the power output.

20 watts at a 240V supply is 0.09 amps so a 10 amp power board could in theory take 100 such supplies ... not that I recommend doing that at home as there are a few other factors but it is a reasonable rule of thumb and you should have no safety issues from the point of view of load on the mains system... 

Regards

Trevor

PS Bob I started writing this before your reply but with dinner (usual around 7pm in this part of the world as it is yours) and other things that had to get done, I was a bit after you when I finished ... oh well ...  Trevor
