Re: Hornby 2022/23

Here in the UK there's currenty a TV series about Hornby. One of the episodes a couple of weeks back featured their venture into TT and particularly the design and build of the Flying Scotsman. The shooting for the program had obviously been going on for some time, though some of it was obviously ca...

Re: Sorrento Park (was New Naples Street)

The door is definitely HO, a spare I added to the building from a Walthers kit. It's 44mm high, so if it were TT it would be about 17 feet high - not impossible in some scenarios, say for a freight car entrance, but at HO it scales to around 12 feet high. This building actually belongs to an HO micr...

A fine achievement. But do you mean it wouldn't have happened if you'd been sober?!

Re: Sorrento Park (was New Naples Street)

A bit of progress on the new layout - wire in tube for turnout control, a road and some legs. The unfinished red item is hopefully going to end up as a sand silo for a glassworks. I started making it for my previous layout but decided not to use it. The low relief building is a pretty standard downl...

Re: AstroGoat and Company's 2023 TT Scale Resolutions

Good on you, it's always good to have goals. The trick is to draw the balance between too easy and too ambitious. But you can always adjust them as you go along if need be.

Re: Hornby 2022/23

It's just struck me that if you go by the pictures at least, the vast majority of the diesel locos and coaches in the Hornby catalogue have bogie-mounted couplers. I thought this was supposed to be conducive to derailments and not a good idea.
