Sorry for cutting my post to pieces, but this forum is forbidding me to post more than two pictures at a time


Thanks very much for pointing out the issues with size, but I really don't understand the bit above. Can @Only Me shed any light on this please?

Sorry for OT, would gladly continue in the help section, but to answer this:

I cannot confirm. I get the error message
"
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /SMFN/index.php on this server.
"
from the forum. Just for test, I tried to make a post with just 15 links to wikipedia start page with repeated
Code: [Select]
[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page]Wikipedia[/url], same error message. Reducing the number of links to 3! it gets through to preview. To me it seems the forum is only allowing 3 [url]-tags, regardless where the link points to.

Don't forget to drill holes in the cross members to thread wiring through. It all gets a bit difficult when the top is on!

What info do you request?

Background for the second plan:
Inspiration was probably a prototype plan from somewhere in rural Scotland, can't remember which. 5 coaches, as shown in the plan (green box is class 37, red boxes are Mk1 coach), would be used for holiday season services only, as not all coaches can be on the platform when trains are crossing. The shorter class 26 or class 27 would not make much difference. If you want to stick with the Scottish theme in the 80s, you could use class 26/27 and class 37 are starting to appear, coaches are Mk1 and Mk2 begin to appear on some routes, class 158 started service around 1990-ish.

Options for modifications:
This plan would be all gradients, except the station, so it could be difficult to add a harbor in a satisfying way. When Iím home I could post the hidden sections, if so requested, but Iím afraid that could be off-putting due to the complexity.

yes, mainly that; but than generalising it for all of Scotland at the same time.

Remember to drill out holes to allow the cabling to run 'neatly' [  ;) ] through that nice looking framework!
