To my laysquid's eye, each company in Japan seems to have its own signalling system slightly different from the others, so I reckon you'll be able to hold off the Rivetcounter Bobbies.

Excellent! Iíll tell them you said it was OK  :D

A new arrival from Keith at Traintrax, Kato's "406 Sunny Court" - ref 23-405C.

Great building, but those trees will have to be replaced with something a little less emerald :sick2:

You should be able to paint the foliage to tone them down....

A couple of blue locos guested on the layout today when a friend came round to play.  If nothing else it reminds me that BR blue is probably the best loco colour in the world 8)

Very impressed with the Class 40 sound given the size of the loco, things have certainly come on since my involvement in OO and HO :thumbsup:

I don't do DCC sound personally, it must be said, as I've always got music on - but it doesn't stop me liking it!

They do look good but my preference for diesels is a mucky green!

Saying that, most of mine are rather too clean.

Built an Outland kit for a modern office block before I've even poured my second cup of tea this morning ;D

I've added some more photos in the form of a mini review at http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=41176

I've fitted a Dapol coach lighting strip (NC040b) into one of my Maunsells.  Plugged straight in at the moment, but will later receive a decoder for controlling on/off.  Pondering whether to fit these to the rest of the rake, or go the DIY and swearing route with the pile of almost-too-small-to-see LEDs I've got :D

I saw @steve6331 at the Liverpool show last Saturday and he'd been soldering LEDs to ambulances and fire engines. I think he said those LEDS were 1mm x 0.6mm :goggleeyes:

I think the trick is that modern SMD leds are very bright, extremely controllable, and very suited to N gauge projects.

The catch is being able to solder the little beggars!

Wow... that's some fine soldering skill  8)
If it looks right, it probably is right.

Still doing my bit to keep Royal Mail staff healthy, fit and in gainful employment.  A couple of packs of Kato 24-204 Standing Passengers arrived from Japan 10 minutes ago.  What I like about this particular set is over half of them are suitably attired for around the 1960s give or take a few years or 5.  Maud and Ethel on the right in particular look like they're waiting for the trolleybus into town :thumbsup:

Also just taken delivery of a pile of timber, some of it straight, for layout work :D
