So you stick it down afterwards.
How does it know the difference between a bit of ballast and a bit of something else.
I'm not convinced. Still...
Already got a vacuum for that. I suppose if you haven’t already got one it’s a good thing to get.
I use the www.pencilonthebackofanenvelope.com system for designing layouts. After designing it using that system I then use...
Not knocking it but seems a lot of bits to do ballasting. What do you do with it once it’s done?
Glue it down suck up the loose stuff. Don’t have much loose stuff as I shape the ballast as I go along and stick it down with a 80/20 mix of...

As I don’t have a local shop I have no choice.

It does a myriad of things, many useless. The grand kids love the animal noises.
I thought so. I just did it for a joke. I said to she who must be obeyed SWMBO I’ll see if Alexa will do train noises and we can pretend we are on...
My points are all operated handraulically as I can easily reach them.
It’s basically an 8 track DC controller that you can program.
Guess it depends if you want to stare at a screen or a set of knobs. I spent far too much of my working life staring at screens so the nearest my...
I made my layout up as I went along. A case of what will fit where in my limited space. When I refer to limited space I mean the baseboard not...
Changing to O gauge last March, aged 70, was the best decision I have made for a long time.
