Hello all,


              Now, I'm unsure of how many people here know about model railways, but I might aswell ask. So I've got myself some track and a dual controller. I can complete the Hornbh TrakMat with the track, so there's a moderate amount. I also have a 3-Car Class 220 Virgin Voyager from Bachmann, a 2-Car Class 156 Central Trains Sprinter from Hornby, and another little BR Blue Diesel Locomotive. Now I'm wondering, what can I do. I've blew my small budget of £60, that's just on track and the controller-I already had the loco's. So what can I do for small money. This is kind-of a test for how much can be done for so little.


Many thanks in advance,

Is it oo-gauge or N gauge? I started on an N gauge project a few years ago and found you could have a lot more fun with it being smaller, you can have longer trains and larger more complex layouts

Well is deepens on what sort of railway you would like to create. It may be useful to visit some model railway exhibitions to get some ideas but also some stalls have boxes of random scenery stuff which are very cheap compared to shops.

Your 390 seems very close to the buffers there :O  
Yeah I know. I normally do it and the train normally hits it as well. 


For those of you which don't know that Cadeby model railway is then here is a short video (not mine).
