Digital And Analogue In Eaton

Recommended Posts

Here are the current contents of my shed here in Eaton, (just North of Bunbury.)

I love being able to drive in and out of the pit lane, running ghost cars in both lanes etc, but as I already had about 70 cars, the cost of chipping all is prohibitive, and at the time of getting the digital stuff I had not heard about chipping the rails, so I shall keep a Plastic analogue as well.

Here is how I do the ghost car thing.

I am impressed by the quality of Carrera's track, had I known about chipping rails I may have gone for D132 instead of SSD.

I am also a big fan of routed tracks, I have made 4 alltogether but found the bigger ones too hard to maintain in the heat of the shed, tape lifting and breaking.

Here is the only routed track I have running at the moment, but I will soon have a fold away one in action.

Damn...thats a heap of tracks

 

They look great. Did you make all the scenery items or did you manage to find things at pretty close 1:32 scale?...looks spot on regardless

Nice set up Paul.

Yes tape is a problem in sheds,that is why I went with braid this time. Much better, been thru two summers and only one small piece came loose, probably due to poor glue application!

Thanks Dave, the stable buildings are a toy kit that my 10yr old Daughter has kindly donated, she is mad about horses, all the garage and pit buildings are hand made.

Thanks kalbfellp, I think braid could be the way to go, Do you use common or garden Contact cement to hold it down?

Thanks silver rocket, yes I am seriously addicted, I love building new tracks but I hate breaking up the old ones, I don't think Doctors could help either unless one of them had a really big shed that I could use :D

Only myself and my youngest daughter race on my tracks, I don't know of any others in the area, and Bunbury is very poor for supplies, only 1 gamesworld and they are not interested in slots, they have some Scaly stuff but all at very premium prices, Thank god for internet shopping.

Only thing I know is that I sold the local paper all our old type setting equipment years ago!

I did offer to go and help install it!
