Re: What Is It

Could be a gatehouse to a coal yard or a weighbridge office. I have no idea what the part number would be.

Re: Bachmann 36-568 chip

I have a number of Zimo decoders and on a Powercab it is F7 that controls shunting speed.

Re: Sound for my steam loco

Most sound decoders have two or three whistles/horns built into the programme software and all you have to do is press the whistle button on your controller when you want it to whistle!
Or am I missing something here???

Dundee MRC

The Dundee model railway club show is on this weekend, always worth a visit as we don't get many shows up this end of the UK.

Re: Loft layout

Astonishing and busy track work. The sight of all those trains picking their way through the network of points would be most dramatic. Could you be persuaded to post a bit of video? I bet it's a sight to see. I never was much of a train spotter, and being from the other side of the Atlantic, could ...

Re: Hornby Class 20 TTS Loco in Consist

Thanks Tim, but I would like to keep my layout "authentic" to the area as much as I can. Perhaps when I eventually get a pair of Class 20 locos to run in consist, I may have to resort to something with more beef to run the track cleaner - a CMX by the way. I have a CMX track cleaner and I...

Re: Hornby Class 20 TTS Loco in Consist

You would be better using a Class 40 or 66 to push your track cleaner.

Re: Hornby Class 20 TTS Loco in Consist

I have 2 Bachmann Class 20s, I tried running them in consist with two different decoders- 1 ESU & 1 DC Concepts, using a Power cab, I could not get them to run at the same speed no matter what I tried to do with speed/voltage etc, recently I purchased two TTS decoders for the 20s and fitted a 7m...
