Wow that helix is incredible, glad you seem to have solved the derailing issue.

Out of interest what is the incline percentage in the helix?

You don't need the rest of the layout - that is quite hypnotic enough in its own right.

Very impressive.

Way out of my league Mr Maurits.

Where exactly is the scenic part going, and how are you going to conceal all the backroom movements?

Very impressive and awesome, I cannot cope with two trains going along at same time without fearing a collision.

I think the computer table needs addressing though  :D

More please.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

agree, but that's on the things to do list. once I am completely satisfied I will start building fiddle yard nr 2 before the top levels can be done.

scenery, well George I would be over the moon if I have done track laying before the end of the year.

NPN, yes you did :wave:

Evening all.

Just realised haven't done much of an update lately.

despite having Horseley Fields complete build up in the garage ( and nothing cooler than running Horsely Fields on your own ) I have also managed to do some bits and pieces on HaM.

Not building wise more on the software side. I was struggling a bit with a build up of traffic going into the fiddleyard down to the fact that around the fiddle yard is a loop with both exits and entrances. with some actions and fine tuning it seems now running more smootly and I managed last night to do an average of 13 trains constantly with an average overall speed of 823 kilometres an hour. as a reference Highbury Fields was never able to do more than 500 average an hour.



has also a bit of a play with the DRS class 37, looks so much better with the snowploughs fitted on.

Hi Maurits, that photo is all double dutch to me :-) but I am pleased to see that progress is being made. Computer control is fine when working well.

My laptop has ceased taking Hornby Railmaster my layout control system with it. I am hoping to get it swapped to another laptop this week.

chips, I know how this sounds. I didn't mention it but I also had to do my laptop last week as it didn't want to restart anymore. Goods news always after a factory reset it's always quicker ;)
