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.
This is, I think, likely to be my last post about the railways in Orkney. It has been prompted by finding a secondhand copy of Wilfred Simms book.http://rogerfarnworth.com/2019/05/18/the-railways-of-orkney-part-3
Ever had a 'Eureka Moment' or a 💡moment?
I've been racking my brains trying to get the best out my 'All Cars Stop Here 所有的汽车停在这里' OO scale Hong Kong Tram micro layout.
After suffering back ache at the Beamish exhibition through stretching reaching to reach the further point levers of the crossover, I was planning to convert the layout into two single track shuttles. Then another tram modeller came up with an idea of works cars on one track and passenger cars on the other track, nice idea, then my Eureka moment just came.- Use the crossover so that my passenger cars (45, 56, 68 - when it returns from being motorised, 84 and 106) will enter the layout from the rear right, traverse the crossover to the front shelter, then return via the rear shelter off the board. Works Car 400 will start and finish the sequence by running direct to the work site, stabling and finally return off the board - that point lever is less than a foot from my operating position. HKT Safety Training Car is a static vehicle and is parked on the front right.
All this done with no extra cost to the layout, but I stupidly bought an HM2000 controller on Saturday, offers please?
