The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

Morning
Im from south Derbyshire
Not to sure about an actual time zone
Its such a learning curve. Ive sorted a track layout that gives me some interest and prefer more diesel stuff as Ive grown up with it ! Im interested in the technical and building it side my partner Jane wants to do the painting side so its something we can both add to
So the track is screwed down the holes are drilled for the power to the track and points motors so next job is to start soldering

Cheers
Ian

Hi Ian and welcome aboard! :wave:

For your query, it's probably best to start a new thread under the relevant board. That way, others coming along years from now will easier find the same question/answer. I haven't done this myself BTW, but would probably use a mini-tool cutting disc.

I'd suggest a post in the 'Track, Points and Underlay' section but, whatever method is suggested, please ensure you wear eye protection! A decent pair of sidecutters may be the answer. If using a cutting disc be aware this will transmit heat down the rod into the point motor and the discs themselves can be prone to shatter - hence my warning.

What's the best tool to cut the actuation wire on a points motor?

I used, very successfully, a pair of B&Q wire cutters (see photo) and quickly developed a technique (mentioned on a previous thread recently) whereby I placed a large pea-sized blob of blue-tac on the end of the rod which ensured the cut piece drops down rather than flying off randomly (and potentially dangerously!). Normally need to gently file the end of the remaining rod to tidy it up a bit.
