Krimson, it was good to meet you and have a chat today. Good luck with your project.

My team and I had a great day exhibiting. The show organisers looked after the exhibitors really well and the show was very busy all day with plenty of questions and chat with those attending. Just how we like it.

The day was capped by MM winning best in show, totally unexpected as there were plenty of other worthy layouts that could have won.

Whilst it is nice to pick up awards and MM has had three best in show awards to date, it is not what exhibiting is about for me. I get much more of a thrill talking to someone who is genuinely interested in how I have built the layout and if I can help inspire them to push their own boundaries and improve then I will go home satisfied with my day endulging in my hobby

Well said and may I add my congratulations Nick in your latest 'Best in Show'. It was just over a year ago since I saw MM and it was the attention to detail then, even with out of the way cameos, which raises this layout well above what one normally sees in the glossy monthly magazines and also at exhibitions, for example:







I rest my case!

Thanks to all of you who have commented, it is appreciated.

Ah! Bill, my sheep. There lies a story. At the Stafford show early this year I had a chap who carefully looked at every detail on the layout for almost half an hour without saying a word.

He then piped up "what time of year is this set in?".
I replied cautiously "Late summer".
Only to be met with, "In that case your sheep are too woolly!"

I couldn't think of a snappy response, other than the obvious one that I couldn't give ;-) but did think that if that was all he could come up with there wasn't too much wrong. :lol:

Oh well, one really cannot please all of the people all of the time! Personally I like woolly sheep, as does a certain MM land owner.





BTW, sheep are shorn once a year, which can be at any time. Ewes however are typically shorn before spring lambing, so MMs sheep would most likely be male or not yet old enough to give birth.

Nick I see you will be at Alexandra Palace, I shall make sure to catch up with you. After seeing Much Murkle and talking about the Peco bullhead track I have determined to wait and see when they and DCC bring out the points , (saw the mock up at Warley) but have started amassing rolling stock, and planning. So it will be good to pick your brains some more

Despite what Tom thinks, Much Murkle will be at the Salisbury and South Wilts MRC show at Wilton this weekend.

Hi Nick.      Terrific layout , before I reach anywhere near a standard like that? I expect that I will be in my box. I  began with compact puzzle planks, to help me get back into the swing of model railways and I have discovered that the short lengths of the sidings don't leave much room to manoeuvre with Kadee magnets. I just read that you are using "Electro Magnets", will they work with Kadee couplings, and who makes them? Please advise. All the best. Kevin

Hi Kevin and thanks for the comments on the layout. I have no experience of Kadee couplings.  As far as I know Kadee's have a different action in that the magnet pulls the coupling to the side whereas DG's pull the dropper down. 

It may be that an electromagnet will work but it would need someone who has experience of using them to tell you for sure. Why not post a general question on the forum about it.

Electromagnets are readily available and can be obtained from the like of Gaugemaster, Eileens Emporium, Squires etc.

Kevin, electromagnets for Kadee are made by Kadee  as one would expect !

Hi Ron.  Thank you. But, on my crowded plank's the straight track emmidiately to the advance of the points isn't really long enough to fit a magnet.  And if I realised that before hand I would have left more space. And as far as lifting the track and starting again, I'd rather not, now I am up the creek without a paddle.    Kevin

Thanks Sol, not one of my own photos sadly. It was taken by a good friend of mine who helps to operate MM at exhibitions.
