8 Pin Bachmann Cl66 Independent Lighting

Hello all, first time on here in a while... I recently delved into that ominously named box ("projects") and dug out my Bachmann Class 66 which I set aside years ago part-way through converting it to individually controlled DCC lighting. It's the 8 pin board, old style lights, with top hea...

Re: turntable

It could be that the commutator is dirty, when it stops, try giving it a little push and see if it sets off again.

Re: IEP and GW Bristol/Cardiff electrification get go ahead

IEP - what a massive pile of poo that is. A train which will be so heavy it'll be inoperable without massive subsidy, which will be uncomfortable, cause massive track damage, and have bugger all seats in it so it'll go.
