It is operated with Digitrex DCC (digital command control) and Bill controls and programs this model railroad with his laptop. Thrifty scratch-builder and Canadian Kit Basher Kim is back again with another great tutorial. Now take that long piece at the other end and bend for the back cover and bend it so it runs even with the sides that are left. You snap it in just behind where its cut at an angle and add a drop of instant glue and presto ya have a cctv camera.
You can make them any size and scale, and they’re really cheap, saving both time and money hunting down ready made ones for your layout.
Static grass is the latest and greatest (for once I agree with the makers claims) tool in our scenic armoury. However, the materials and ready made applicators are expensive or you need a handymans ability to generate a replica using batteries, fly swatters a la Blue Peter (for those of us who grew up in UK when TV was black and white)! I have been fortunate enough to play with some of these tools, and whilst expensive, I have found in small areas or cramped spaces they can be hard to use and I havn’t been satisfied with the outcome.
Recently by accident, I unwittingly came up with an alternative using everyday household items to apply static grass.
My static grass kit (illustrated below) now consists of a balloon, nylon (your girlfriend’s pantyhose works really well) or athletes T-shirt (not cotton),  static grass and white glue. As the static charge is on the surface of the balloon and generated by friction, there is no need to earth by connecting to the rail or baseboard or for a power supply. As you pass the balloon over the grass, you will hear the grass pop up as the static does its magic.  To repeat, rub the balloon against the nylon and repeat. Kim is a machine I tell you… This man is just oozing creative ideas for thing you can make for your layout for next to nothing. It just goes to show you don’t need a huge budget to make stuff for your layout, and Kim has shown us this time and time again.
Continuing our theme of making stuff from junk, Kim’s back again with another really quick and easy idea for making substation transformers which will look great on modern image layouts and industrial scenes, using stuff you’ve probably got lying around in the shed! There are many proprietary telegraph pole kits & ready made poles available from numerous manufacturers like Hornby, Ratio, Peco and more. Start with a quarter inch diameter dowel you find in hardware stores or for thinner poles you can use wooden kebab skewers. Now take some thin metal scrap from the old radio or even an old aluminium food tray and cut a tiny metal bracket to mount on the post. Different countries have different designed post and telephone poles, but if you look on the net you can get many photos of power poles and telephone poles from all over the world.
Now in Canada we have our main power wires, telephone wires and cable high speed hanging attached a few feet from the bottom of our transformers.


Following extensive upgrades during the 1930’s in anticiaption of war, the line became an important artery round north London.
All of a sudden, purpose has given me opportunity to model a variety of connected scenes, locomotives and rolling stock (thats got your attention now, maybe he isn’t a march hare after all).
Remember, like modern day roads, the railways came after the landscape and were often destructive to or had to overcome natures grand plan! Over the coming months, I will probably add pill boxes, a crashed or shot down aircraft into an embankment and as I have already done, small scenes such as roadworks or culverts. You see them mounted up on the sides of buildings in busy urban areas and of course on the sides of industrial and office buildings too. Excess grass will be attracted to the balloon surface and you can brush back into the container, when finished for use next time. It’s well worth trying to think a bit differently about the stuff we have lying around our homes and find ways in which we can use them on our layouts, rather than just buying everything ready-done from our hobby shops every time. I made this transformer from a burned out relay switch cover, but you could use any small plastic box of a suitable size. From simple single poles on our streets, to multi-armed beasts striding across the countryside, carrying our telephone & data signals from town to town and city to city. If anyone has any questions, just post them in the comments below and I’ll answer them right away.
For my own layout, by mixing geography, historical fact and a dose of fiction, I was able to create a purpose for my line.
Post war, the line takes local honey, beer, vegetables and flowers in season to the London markets, airmen and supplies alight for the local airfields, the daily main line visitor heading to or from the ferry and liner terminal at Tilbury and of course, suburban services heading into London. In reality very little, but, it gives me a reason to incorporate all sorts of key scenic and man made features. I admit, I may not be very good at it, but I like scenic modelling and detailing buildings and scenes. Each scene is a small area, say 12 by 12 inches in real money and I, over a period of time, detail the hell out of it! I use acrylic colour, paints and basic, textures to create broad scenes that accentuate the cameos.
So it’s only right that we should be adding them to our layouts too, for a little extra realism. Mount it into position (you can make a bracket from the same plastic tub you used for the camera) and it’ll look great! Take the inflated balloon, rub it two or three times against the piece of nylon to generate a static charge. The reward and satisfaction in creating something from scratch far outweighs the satisfaction from the buying the retail version!


So it’s essential then that we make sure we build them in to our layouts, for without them, things would perhaps look a little bare! Those will act as cross beam member supports and also as brackets for the fuses as seen in photos.
You can of course also adjust the thickness of the dowel & cross-members you use depending on the scale your modelling.
But in my case I’m going to use my poles to hook up real power at low voltage for home lights and street lights on my layout.
The lines purpose, originally was to provide a route round London connecting the   north and east to the original Thames ferry ports, before their relocation to Dover and Folkestone. The goods shed can be a stylised masterpiece featuring Ratio, Skalescenes etc pieces or a Metcalfe or off the shelf kit and on it goes. So, my 13 foot by 2foot branch line has 4 scenes; the small terminus station, goods shed, signal box and cottages and small engine shed and coal yard.
However, I have been able to set a signal box, a Hornby kit, compete with Ratio interior, lighting and signal man into the scenic backdrop and contour the foreground so it is visible from all angles. The metal silver wire you see in photo is thin flexable welding wire I used to make the tiny fuse brackets you see in other photo.
Once you’re happy with how it looks, install the completed cross beam with insulators in top notched post and use a sewing pin with a small flat head as a bolt. At the same time, by extending 10 miles beyond Brentwood a loop was created supplying the airbases and army camps at Warley and providing farmers with access to the London markets.
To make fuse take a sewing needle and carefully wind copper wire you salvaged into tiny coils as seen in photo. You will have to trim them as you go.
These need to be cut long enough to carefully pin it to the side of that popsicle stick as you can see in the picture.
The transformer will be painted and added to the two tower’s I started for the substation. Leave a little space between each cross member so you can fit the insulators in, but not too much.
The insulators  are made from tiny jewellery beads mounted onto short pins on the end of each cross member.
