Re: hornby elite controller

hi alex, the loco that died was a Bachmann already fitted and the new loco is a Hornby with decoder already fitted. I have had the Bachmann running for the past twelve months. the Hornby is new and was tested at the model shop, as was the Bachmann. which brings me back to the controller. regards pete.

Re: changes

thanks for the information, i have had my suspicions regarding the couplings. if i keep all the couplings the same on a train i find i can reverse it around the layout without a problem. so i will build trains up all with the same couplings, i have an hornby six axle coach that will jump the track n...

hi. err. plan number 5. ? my track is so worn out with all the changes that i am having to replace a lot of it. points are also messed up and i have had to reset all the points as trailing. that solved some of the jumping. one of my locos ran into the rear of a stationary goods train and is now dead...
