Re: Sorrento Park (was New Naples Street)

They look neat - and cheap too! P1060564.JPG I've tried this arrangement in the meantime, and it seems to work well enough, with electrical contact being made between the metal plates when the two baseboard ends are pushed together (of course they are upside down in the picture). A bit of tidying up...

Sorrento Park (was New Naples Street)

So here's the new track plan all laid out. The main part is all Peco 1:120, the fiddle yard at top right is the old Peco HOm. I may change this when the new Peco small radius turnouts are available. I've taken up an idea suggested I think by Alex and installed a crossover in the fiddle yard, which a...

Re: Lincoln Locos

It may say more about the size of the SW - they are bigger than you think.

Re: Hornby 2022/23

An interesting point to me is that despite the correct scale/gauge of the new British TT being vaunted, Hornby are initially targeting people most of whom probably neither know nor care - families whose kids want a train set. But there is a certain satisfaction to be had from knowing that it's not a...

Re: Hornby 2022/23

In the UK, there will be lots joining the party if the Hornby products take off, as I'm sure they will.
But as has been said, let's hope a manufacturer of American outline shows some interest. Bachmann, Atlas or Athearn would be ideal.

Re: Hornby 2022/23

This Hornby TT is going to be really nice. Very keen prices too. It's exactly what I was expecting to be there about 20 years ago when I was just getting into railway modelling. But one thing Simon Kohler said that's clearly wrong is that all TT, whether American or European, will hook up to the new...
