AMRM served the hobby, and me, brilliantly for many years.  But, for me it no longer serves my needs and I stopped buying it two years ago.  Whether that is because I have moved on in the hobby, and p ...

I'm with Railway Dog.  Start with sequencing.  No time pressure!

A quick comment.  I've just got back home to the south coast after spending four hours at the exhibition.  There were some issues which need improvement (ain't it the way every year) but I enjoyed it, ...

I've successfully done three Trainorama driving wheels (but maybe my luck will change on future attempts).

[quote=brissim]Not aware of any commercially available conversion kit but I do recall an article several years ago in (I think) the AMRM about the conversion of an original Trax/Powerline 48 to a PL.

You don't even have to go to a quarry, unless you need its specific colour.

Get a bucket of sand from any fresh water river bed and sift it to size.  You will find it will "flow" onto your track ea ...

Is there a model railway club near you?  If so, JOIN asap, and pick the brains of its members.  I'm sure they'll be happy to help and, hopefully, you are likely to see their creations.  That will prom ...

the corrugations are 9 per 10mm - a little coarse but art is not maths.

Good call.

My tool and foil turned up in the mail today.  The tool seems OK, though I'd prefer to be able to do bigger areas at a "swipe".
