Here’s a question that keeps getting mailed in again and again – so I thought it a good idea to publish. Please post your answers in the form at the bottom of the page:
“Hi Alastair. I have problem which one of your contributers may be able to help with.
My layout is not digital but has three separate tracks each one having its own power supply, all goes well apart from one track which will run for about half it’s distance then it runs out of power, switch it off for a few minutes and off it will run, again for a short time, very annoying.
I have checked all connections, all flitch plates, made sure all track is clean and that my locomotive wheels are clean.
The other two tracks continue to run fine no problems at all and yes they are all fed from the same supply. I have also changed the transformer to no avail.

An some night paving no going on.
Still a work in progress .lights,roadbed , etc.
That’s all for today folks – thanks for all the comments on the latest print out scenery.
Surprisingly, I got a few mails asking if it really is made from sheets of paper that are printed out.
Well, yes, the clue’s in the name: print out scenery. You just download, print and stick together. Here’s some pics of them:
Today is the very last day for the launch price, so if you want to grab this offer and save $5 you can grab it here.
1. You print them out and stick ’em together.
2. They print out at HO scale. For N scale, reduce by 50%.
3. For O scale, increase by 48% (here’s one of the houses in O scale)
4. Print as many, and make as many as you like.
Business as usual next time.
