That has come up trumps Pete, great job. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

If you have an old OO/4mm 5 plank open wagon sitting around, pop that on the roof for comparison !

Cheers, Gary.

Ron asked, how big is the building and Gary suggested plonking a 4mm wagon on top for comparison. 
So here go's.




And... 





I have also had a sort out in the shed, now the rally season is over for us. I've moved a load of stuff from the back wall and moved the baseboard back 4 ft which has given me room to set up the next board and place the buildings I've already made (but not finished yet :whatever:) so I can see where I need to go next. 

Also, having taken on board advice that said I didn't need to rewire for DCC, just switch on all the sections, well I did and hey presto! it worked much to my relief http://www.click.




Thats it for now, got to get dinner on.

Cheer's, Pete.

The layout looks great Pete, even though it's not finished. Having that 4mm track and wagon makes it look like you building a narrow gauge line on the layout, alongside the 7mm !

Cheers, Gary.

I had another sort out in the shed today, and I've managed to find room for the 3rd board, I can now run trains and shunt. I still need to sort the wiring to the third board, its just a chocolate block connector, I really need to solder some proper connectors to tidy things up.One thing I've discovered is locos and wagons foul on the bridge at the rear of the layout, which is strange as they didn't before I dismantled it last year.... Anyway I had to chop a lump out but all's good now. One other thing is the point rods have stiffened up so I need to get underneath with some WD40 and give the linkages a good spray. All very well getting down there but getting back up again is another matter!!!

I had a little play/test run with my 08, and a couple of wagons, I'm beginning to think I might have to look at operating the layout from the front. That is going to mean some jiggery pokery with the point operation. Maybe look at point motors/servos. We will see.

More play/testing tomorrow :giggle:.

Cheer's, Pete.

Looking really good Pete, those buildings are something to be very proud of. Time to start planning a running video for us to enjoy :thumbs:
