Does anybody else occasionally gloat over HO models? I do but I don't have any way of running them - they would have to sit on display if I got any!

I've lost track of the number of times I've looked at an H0 model and thought 'I wish they did that in N...'.  :'(

hehe, I used to refer to my depot as a Bbw (Bahnbetreibswerk) but now I use Bw.  It seems that's how they're named and known these days

I have a few  :D 



When my lad was a youngster he had a Hornby set of course, so I used to run them on that.  That stuff's not been out of the cupboard for a few years now, I think he's keeping it for his own kids  :thumbsup:


Mind you, that's nothing compared to some of the other trains in the house   :D

Must admit my mind is being blown somewhat with how to tackle layout lighting. There seem to be so many aspects to consider: the buildings, the mast lights etc.

Also because I don't know the brightness levels yet I'm not sure how to space the lights and how many I need exactly. And my masts need to fit in around the catenary masts (which aren't all up yet).

I also need to build some form of canopy for the far side platform, which I imagine would need under-lighting ( as does the main station building canopy).

Then there's the option of having switches to operate various sets of lights. I might draw up a plan to try to get my head around it. ???

Thank you on the update about the masts.   :thumbsup:

I was tempted to order some as soon as you mentioned them, but as I look for your real photos, and after this image:

I will order a couple today.  :D

Looks like your catenary masts have two different lengths of registration arm (just like the old Vollmer masts I use)?    When placing masts round curves then you should place the long arm masts on the inside of the curve and the short arms on the outside.

Oh no - I've just re-done these - but redone them the wrong way around so all long arms are on the outside!!!  :-[ :doh:
