I’ve always appreciated Ian Futer’s layouts, and their underlying designs. Some of his best designs are his three-point specials. Very simple, but with enough operation built in to be reasonably interesting to operate. This month’s Railway Modeller brought these plans … Continue reading
An “operational incident” from Duncan. Ramsgate, I think….. we’ve all done this on a layout… less so in full scale! How silly can you get? Couple posed on rail line for wedding shoot Some interesting ideas here: Five innovations that … Continue reading
