Hi to all that read this, I am a complete novice with regards to topic writing plus picture downloading on this sight. It's taken me a good few days to get this far and I am open to any suggestions on how to improve. Yes I've gone through the help sections and it's enabled me to get this far but now to put a picture to this test.


Now its on I'm having difficulty to put another one on as this picture stays on??
Sorry to those that read this.

OK, once you loaded the first picture, hit the Enter key to give a clear line, then load the next picture or more words then Enter again.
You are using a PC not a Mac or phone?

This may help

Hi and a big thanks for the reply. Yes I'm using my laptop to do everything and my biggest gripe is all of my pictures taken with my mobile are stored on Google pictures and I have to go through a long journey of Gmailing the pictures to myself and then transferring them into a pictures folder to then put them on this page....ouch. Big thanks again.

Welcome! I email myself all my photos, otherwise they seem to turn upside down on here!
That said your layout looks great. Can you run 5 loops at once?

Sorry for the late reply but what do you mean by "run five loops at once". Do you mean insert five pictures with my topic? Mike

I think he means run 5 trains on the loops at the same time.

Yes it can be done but I defy anyone to control 5 trains at the same time and when I say "control", I mean stopping and starting and shunting,,,,

Dumb me  :???:.......I've got pictures on my mind. My layout has a small preserved line, the inner two lines with sidings and loops, a large up and down line, the outer lines,with I hope a station area plus a small depot. The main line runs from the low level into a tunnel then through the hillside up an incline out of another tunnel along an higher level back down an incline into another tunnel mouth through the hillside at the low level exiting  through another tunnel and back to where it started from. My twelve by six foot table by doing this is doubled so I can run four engines plus its rake all at the same time and when my DC wiring is complete I hope to be shunting a fifth loco into the fuelling depot. If you like I can send a few more pictures to visually explain better tomorrow.Mike

I agree with what you say Ron but for me in model railway I'm a train watcher and I've spent some evenings watching four locos moving around my layout in there opposite directions with a nice pint of Abbots Ale in my hand. With my DC control units I set them to a slow speed and when I want to change a loco I'll send it into a siding close the point load another loco and small rake and send it on its way, as you can see my layout is not as they say prototypical and yes for some I play trains but I enjoy it.Mike

Hi Mike and welcome

You will very quickly discover Rule 1 on here - it's your layout and you can do whatever pleases you most!!

Happy modelling

Barry

I keep all my photos as jpg files with minimal compression, transfer from the cell phone as soon as they are taken. Get a decent digital camera and dedicate it to the layout. Covered before, but watch the information stored in the photos. Google wants your photos for maps, advertising, tracking. They're not paying you.

Nice tidy layout. As Barry says, rule I, ymr. We all play with trains.


Nigel
