317/366 Model Railways

Out for my lunchtime walk, rain was threatening, but didn’t arrive. The sky looks very angry though, but it was OK, I enjoyed the walk.

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted a model railway layout. It doesn’t have to be a big one, I keep on having ideas about what I would like. There are two things; It must be N-Gauge, this allows for a small space layout, and it must have Digital Command Control – computer control. I like semaphore signals, I’d want to be able to control them. Because it’s a small layout. I quite like the idea of shunting puzzles, it doesn’t involve a large layout, plenty of points, some signals.

I think I’d like a switching panel, that looks like the real layout, with buttons to press to set points and signals, with the train(s) being controlled from the computer. If I use shunting puzzles, it’s be a bit like a game of chess, set the puzzle up, and then take as long as I want to solve it.

Gosport has an American model railway society. I could go to that to learn construction techniques, in particular, the power and control wiring set ups. Then of course, there is scenery and setting. I quite like the Idea of an industrial scene, with containers and container cranes that work, but this is getting a bit too big. Reign back on my planning.

At one point, I started thinking about the film Welcome to Marwen, the lead character was making stories out of the models he had and become involved in the stories, I wanted to create some of those stories myself. But that is an entirely different story.

Tomorrow, I think Clouds and Pylons.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
