Re: Cobalts are confusing me!!!

yeah Sean,i have 8 cobalts and are happy with them(as i use dcc/nce setup,so i drive all from handset)but have 2 cobalts that need a "tap"from a small hammer every now and then,which i find annoying,shouldnt be this way.BG

Re: are the curves too tight??

Yes Essex and b308,agreed.but these Kato 's are even "narrower" lol,than the usual Katow.they are a bit cheaper than other models,maybe for this reason,they are very frustrating models!.cheers

Re: are the curves too tight??

Re: are the curves too tight??

Hi Micro.I will make two comments rather than answers. 1.You say that your layout 'includes'these settrack.Does that mean your mixing settrack and Flexitrack?I find these two are slightly different height,causing problems. 2.Ive just bought a Kato sd-45 loco from The states.My trackwork(all flexi)is...

Re: DCC track Isolation

Alex,im far from a dcc expert,but ive invested in Nce powercab recently,so i will give A answer.For me anyway,isolating sections is still required for setting up 'blocks'.As im aiming towards automation,i have a sensor attached to each of my blocks,so when a (DCC)loco enters this block,it sends a si...

(electro frog) 2.For Dcc,wouldn't insulfrog be a better choice?(after modding ).what are the advan...
