To far away for me - but it does look worth a visit if you live a little closer to Tamworth. Thanks for posting.

Re: Mimic board

Hi Glynn - welcome to the forum. I do not have directional lights next to the point switches - it would be useful. I used, as Steve M suggested white plasticicard (2mm - may be 3mm) and the sprung to centre On-Off-On switches that Brian mentioned. I used a car lining tape from Halfords to represent ...

Re: Any tips for making holes for track pins?

I don't recall which make of track pin I used, but I just pushed them through the sleepers into the board using a pair of long nosed pliers - I didn't drill any holes.

Re: Flu jab?
