Re: Anyrail 6 users help please

Don't think there is anything other than unlimited track sections for your money, there not much in the way of libraries available once you have paid, and defiantly little in the way of buildings. To get over the 50 limit you could build your layout in sections then paste them together once printed....

Re: K1 decoder

I know I turned the brake function on, on a mx622 that was used at one end of a Farish Midland Pullman so that it matched the sound decoder at the other end, that was about a year ago so anything produced since then should support it.

Re: Fixing Down Scatter

You could try spraying a very watered down mix of Water/PVA or one of the cheap strong hair sprays.

A bit late now but its sometimes recommended to paint the area in a colour similar to the scatter first, so if any does drop or get knocked off its not so obvious.

Re: DCC Question

For anything other than a simple single loop DCC is much easier to wire

Loco conversion depends on the loco, some have decoder sockets built in some need to be hard wired, some need more work than others to convert, so it depends on model, make and age.

Re: Electrical Issues

Have you connected the toe of each point set to the DCC bus, with 4 points you should have 4 connections to the bus.

Unless the DCC mod does away with that need, then ignore the above.

Have a look at Halfords Camo Brown, looks quite a good colour for track sleepers.

Re: Start voltage adjustment TTS decoder (rebuilt MN)

To adjust top speed you need to adjust the value of CV5 for top speed and then CV6 to set medium speed CV2 is for adjusting start value so your loco just starts to move on Speed Step 1. The trouble with TTS decoders is that they don't support changing CV2, 5 or 6, they only support CV3 & 4 which...
