Just found this Vid, almost G Scale with the LGB Flexible Ruler. Most but not all Cardboard the Power Unit looks to be Hips or perhaps PVC Coated Foamboard. Go on you know you want to make one, plus it runs off a PP9! Well worth looking at the construction of the Corridoor Connections at around 6 minutes. You can always learn something from watching a construction project.

Fascinating, but will it go round bends?

The music on the vid sounds like something off a 1970's porn movie, the Memsahib stuck her head into my office and asked what on earth I was watching.... she was quite disappointed when told it was a train video.... :D

Jon.

There were some bends on the Vid outside, but certainly not LGB R1!

I caught that one also, a few days ago. There's more than one way to enjoy our hobby, even if funds are low.

The ideas fantastic, the models brilliant, unless you can do better...
