Does anyone know the spacing between two tracks on a straight. Got some points and was going to use a R216 curve to straighten up but distance between tracks seems wrong.

Tiny was about 6'3'' .

Even here in the land of climate change denial, we have domestic sprinkler systems that have built in rain detectors and automatically switch off if it has rained recently.

If its untreated water then its just lazy. If it's tap water then it ought to be fixed.

OK so first I'm confused.

First are you using DSL for your internet service? It sounds like you are cos that's why there are just 2 wires on your old extension cable.

So then you are running the cable to your Router, NOT to the computer.

Next you mention a diagram, but we can't see it, that describes the 4 wire cable you have acquired. Standard off the shelf telephone wiring and accessories come with 4 wires, 2 sets of twisted pairs. We'll need to see the diagram to figure out why it's not working.

It is an interesting point.

Even of OD were to choose to sell in bulk at 1 quid per Jag or less, they would still have to be modified with vinyl covers to be absolutely correct. 

The Transits, I believe are not covered so that's a different matter.

I am taking the old man out to Stafford at some point over the next 2 weeks so I will try and tie it in to when both the Jag and Ford trains are actually running (Instead of just pathed to run) to get pictures so there may be a little clarity. For some reason remember the vans in some cases do have vinyls on it just appears they don't due to them mainly been white (the van mans favourite colour).

Having just fitted new UPVC skirting boards, I thought I'd run a new telephone extension cable to for the computer, hiding the cable inside the skirting. I have two issues.  The old extension (which I'm using this minute) disappears into the master socket, the last visit of a bt engineer did that cos he said one less plug in the system gives better connectivity, fair enough.
However at the end of that extension, there are only two wires (red & green) connecteted to the front plate. The new socket has four wires ( red, green, black, & gold.) which are connected as per the diagram.  This socket, when plugged in at to master socket does not work.  Are these two extra wires (black & gold ) the cause of my router's inability  to connect to 'tinternet?
