That looks really good. Have you painted the frogs, or are you not using the cast ones any more? They look great.

I will then supply chairs pre trimmed to fit around the cast K crossing area.

Will these be available separately to fit round the cast crossing on points

They are the same castings, but yes blackened using brass blackening fluid.

Yes, I can also supply these as cosmetic chairs for adding around the cast frog/K crossing.

I am now just spending my Sunday evening with a beer, trying to work out the next steps in the project... :beers:  8)

Are code 40 bullhead fishplates/rail joiners likely to be available soon?

I hope you know what you've done, Wayne. Now you've produced the Single Slip I'm going to have to plan and build a Midland Railway layout and buy a bunch of Farish Midland & LMS loco's. And I suspect many others are thinking the same thing. I hope you're happy with yourself...

I just made an order for a couple of lengths of flexi and the jig. My layout is too far on to really take advantage of this amazing track but I can at least try a bit of it.

Is there a three way point in the pipeline?

Thanks for your order.

Yes, I've been looking at the geometry for a 3 way point...
Thanks,
Wayne.

The slip looks good!

I've just updated Anyrail and am very pleased to see Finetrax present in the library. Will the half metre flexi be added at some point?

I am in the process of planning my next layout , Fairford Glos an interesting variation of the ubiquitous GWR branch line terminus.
 I need to upgrade my version of Anyrail to include Finetrax. I have plenty of reference books with the prototypical track plan, there are only 8 points but how do I assess which will be correct size ones from the range A5 etc?
Cheers Carl.

Evening all,

Have to say I'm very impressed with what i've seen on here, so much so that over the weekend I placed an order for a few point kits and some flexi to have a play before deciding whether my layout in planning will use fiNetrax. Got to say hats off to Wayne as I forgot to add the Jig to my original order and he was very swift in replying to allow me to add the jig to my original order, top class customer service. Now to wait patiently for the postman :D

Cheers,

Ollie

One way I worked out some of the points required on my layout was to count the sleepers (to the amusement of some other members). As a general rule companies used the largest point possible. A5 points were only used in very tight spaces. Mainline points were generally C10 and goods yards B6-B8.

Hi Guys,

The A5 Y Point is now up on the website.

I am still working out a solution for the trimmed chairs on the single slip kit, but have milled a batch of A5 Standard Crossover bases, should have these up also, over the next few days...
Thanks,
Wayne.
