Many many years ago I built my own PWM controller - sold it along with all my other railway stuff mis 80s, it was the size of a small house brick IIRC :D .

Re: Housing market mayhem

Similar story from me, we lived in Stroud Green, not so far from Muswell Hill. Our family were renting half of one of those large Victorian houses in the early fifties when next door came up for sale.

Re: Paint board before laying track?

Well that's a well timed question :D I've just put my paint brush down after painting my baseboard, or at least the bit round the track. Obviously I laid the track first. Don't think it makes much difference tbh.
