Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

TimberSurf, I am using two servo testers and a toggle switch. Can I put a resistor in the servo positive wire?

Thanks

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Thanks mountain.

I do need to figure out how to slow it down. I didn't think about gluing someone to the gate. Nice idea that!

Thanks

Re: MIDVILLE JUNCTION Modern 00

Hi everyone, I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. It's mainly due to weather. I haven't felt like going out to the shed. And most of the time I have been in there I have been wiring. So, not much to see. Anyway, a small bit of progress to report. I have started scenery for what will b...

Re: East Cheltwell

Hi, There is some lovely work going on here! I like your weathering. Some locos would have been in a right state, especially towards the end of the steam era. The scenery you are doing is very impressive too. Lots of nice little scenes. I like the overgrown siding in one of your most recent photos. ...

Re: loco stops then jerks

Hi, I'm not sure if this helps, but, I have a Hornby Class 153 DMU that did the same thing. I swapped decoders etc but no better. I googled and found out that you need to change CV 54 to 10 and CV 55 to 50. Mine was a Bachmann decoder and this seems to be a theme with certain loco and decoder combin...

Re: Lift out section

Hi, Just to give you an idea of how I did it. I have a hinged section that raises for underneath hidden lines and a large hinged section that does the scenic mainline. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4292/35774676082_632eaa626a_c.jpg Untitled by daniel payne , on Flickr https://farm5.staticflickr.com...

Re: 32-377 Class 37 troubles

I have two bachmann 66's with similar problems. Fine one minute, struggling the next. Wheels are clean, backs are clean.

I have an older 8 pin and a newer 21 pin.

They both used to be really reliable

Following with interest, let us know how it goes

Thanks

Re: Self adhesive numbers

That's a very generous offer, but from the measurements you have given I am pretty sure they are a winner.

I will see if I can pick some up this week.

Thanks

Self adhesive numbers

Hi everyone,

I am after some small self adhesive numbers for my mimic panel. I have some isolated sections and the switches for these are remote. I could do with some 3 or 4mm numbers, like what used to come with blank VHS tapes (if anyone remembers what I'm talking about)

Thanks

Re: Girder bridge sides

I was thinking more like the peco lk-10.

Plate girder bridge sides.

Thanks for the reply though

Girder bridge sides

Hi everyone,

I just wondered if there was a model or a kit for longer girder bridge sides than the peco lk-10.

Flat topped rather than curved would be better for what I want but it doesn't really matter.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Dan
