Welcome to my railway web site
Do send me your comments about my site and get in contact if you are interested in meeting up to exchange ideas you never know it could even lead to a revival of a model railway club in Weston super Mare
The LMR is LESTER'S MODEL RAILWAY and
not London midland region it is not based on any period or region. The
permanent way consists of two loops of Peco code 100 track measuring approximately 24ft by
8ft.The two main line stations will accommodate a five coach train and
locomotive. The terminus has 3 platform and 5 roads able to take a 4 or 5 coach train.
The layout is dcc
and most locomotives have sound decoders fitted I tend
to favour Hornby's railroad range rather than the super detailed.
I have had more than one or two crashes with locomotives due to
forgetting the point settings, and there are less bits to get broken
It suits my needs to still have a few isolated sidings,on all sidings I have fitted small
red LEDs to
all buffer stops.
2017 has been a busy year on the LMR, I have started fit servos for many or the non motorised points, switches if you are on the other side. I am using Megapoints and Micro miniatures comptrollers for the servos, for point switching I favour Megapoints and its expandability. However Micro miniatures Has some good features the remote control and the ability to use reed switches great for changing signals after the train passes.
As well as adding the servos I have been busy fitting mico LED's to signals and crossing gates
