Re: Building smoke?

I suppose some of the suggestions made here https://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=53111&hilit=smoke would be valid

Re: Kidneston

Looking good Dragonfly - I only have the one live frog three way point at the entrance to one of the depots - never again as it was a nightmare to wire up!

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Its been a slow week, constructing the "back" section of the bridge support involved building a structure that would become both the girder bridge support, an arch bridge, and the support for a plate girder bridge over the Gateside line. This was not an easy task as the tracks that were ad...

Re: Different Values For The Same Model?

There's an answer to the box never opened nonsense, in the interest of conserving resources the manufacturer's should switch from clear plastic sleeves to ecco friendly reconstituted cardboard. They could then produce sealed collectors editions with just a lead weight inside the box :D I once remem...

Re: Different Values For The Same Model?

A dealer near me never takes the items out the boxes because he says as soon as the box is opened he can't sell them. I asked him how we know the loco is working and what would we do if it does not? He said if there was an issue with the item to deal direct with the manufacturer rather then return ...

Re: The 2018 Competition - Voting is open (ends on the 8th!!)

I take it that not everybody made three choices in their voting? There were a total of 100 votes cast, and given that each person should have allocated 6 votes (3 for first, 2 for second, and 1 for third choice) that means that 16.66666666666666666666666666666666666667 people voted :D

Re: Powerful CDU

I have a similar set-up with multiple Peco point motors being fired at once, I have a Gaugemaster CDU with an additional capacitor (can't remember the value - will check tonight) soldered in parallel and fed by an 18V AC power source. Never had any issues with it failing to set the route,

Re: Derby Sulzer type 2, class 25/3 for OO

Surprised that D7612 is not included as this is a preserved example, would have snapped that one up as it was the loco that hauled me on my first trip to Fort William in 1966, and therefore would have been appropriate for my layout. Maybe a later issue.
