Re: bachmann J72 (new) issue

A stay alive is a 'band aid', the fundamental problem that should be addressed is interruption in the track supply to the decoder. Do all pick up wipers maintain full contact through side to side movement of the wheels? Are all the connections from the pick up strips to the decoder sound? (Bachmann...

Re: bachmann J72 (new) issue

Easy! Dissable the inertia settings on the decoder and possibly the back EMF as well. Set the value to 0 or whatever is the setting that turns them off. What is happening is that slight interuptions of the track to decoder (Track to motor if it was DC) which would be so slight that they would not b...

Re: Michaela's Layout

hi Michaela How did you get the camera to stay on the loco at 2.20? Is it a special camera? It's just a gopro balanced on the tender, got a bit lucky that it actually worked tbh, need to find a more sophisticated way of doing it! Great video, and great layout :D. Nice to see decent length trains sn...

Re: Fitting lights to a steam loco with a 21 pin decoder

Main thing is... Is there room for anything additional? Many locos just wont have the space or headroom for additional PCBs. wouldn't be additional, would be to replace the ones that are already there to make soldering the various wires for lights etc a lot easier in the case of 21 pin decoders The...

Re: Fitting lights to a steam loco with a 21 pin decoder
