    9. Clubs & Societies

      There are two ways you can get your club involved with the MRL Forums!

      1. You can send the club's details to an administrator to be advertised such as where the club is based, when you meet up and what your website (if you have one) is.

      2. If you want to go the extra mile, you can set up your club's own sub-forum! This will not only allow you to advertise, but also mean you and your members can have a forum of your own to use for your needs.

      What ever you want, all you need to do is send an Administrator a PM to get your Club or Society added here, and outline what you would like from us.

    • Well, painting the plate in green/brownish tones would do a lot too and putting some vertical object as the ones you mentioned will do the rest. In a small layout in which building I took a little part, we simply got the effect putting a cow in a point where otherwise the "sightline" would have been badly interrupted .... and it worked 
    • Hi all Well thank god for that a day in the 20's for the last five days temperatures have been in the low to mid 40's. That has meant I could go into the shed today with the layout and get the nearly last of the wiring done. Not the neatest job I have done still needs another look to see if a can get it a little tidier.     Have a scratch on one of the switch plates to fix the tags green is off red is on they where painted' because the on off where upside down with the switch the way round I want it. The green yellow switch is lights ( not installed yet) Will try again later to get them all straight the tags are being a pain not wanting to stay straight. regards John      
    • With the switch plate I think I will only be part successful The only thing I can think of is a chook pen fence to lock up the chook's at night. That's only going to be a couple of panels and at three or four feet high. I don't think it will hide the switch plate very well. regards John

    • Hi all I have never really liked the unusual fixed distant signal I made it wasn't quite right the first time round The concept was good the execution Hmm well yes, but err NO. So I have started making another one. the board is bigger 4' square the mast bigger and taller and the top of the mast has been shaped the first one was not. The back of the board has also been painted black and white like the first one should have been but was not. I still have to find a dummy fixed lamp for it not sure what to use for that as it should have a green lens. And add  a thin 1mm wide strip of something wrapped around the top to represent the mast cap "oops" forgot that before painting the mast. This one has an all-round better appearance than the first one and its not even finished yet   regards John
