Re: Kingswood Junction (First Layout since 1984)

Blimey was it really a year ago that I last posted?

Railmatch acrylic sleeper grime

Seems to be out of stock everywhere unless I pay over the odds on ebay!
I'll soon be close to weathering some track and wondered if anyone knew why there seems to be a shortage.. :o

Re: Kingswood Junction (First Layout since 1984)

The Scalescenes Large Station Building re build is still in progress but at the same time I've been working on a station extension. I really wanted to run at least a 7 coach HST but realised a while back that it just doesn't fit comfortably in my terminus. As you can see here it was sitting over a d...

Re: Wiring multiple 3v LED's to 12v DC

Thanks Richard.. And apologies to Suzy. I was after for a yes /no answer. I also sacrificed one of my LED's just to see what happens if I put 12V to it without a resistor :) You might like to make the LEDs in to two strings of three and see how you get on with your 680R resistors (one per chain). It...

Re: Please READ the post.

And if you look at my other topics I have 'thanked' people for their advice. Maybe not individually but I thanked them. I've seen this in other forums where people just post what they think is being asked and not actually reading the post and you picked out the example. If people aren't going to res...

Please READ the post.

I know I haven't been here long but I've posted a couple of threads recently asking questions and it seems people don't actually read what is posted!

Please read what is posted and not what you think is posted....

Thank you

Re: Kingswood Junction (First Layout since 1984)

If anyone is still interested in my layout progress (slow as it is) then head over to the BR Blue forum where I will be posting updates from now on.
There will be no more here.

Re: Wiring multiple 3v LED's to 12v DC

As nobody actually answered my question I've actually tried it out for myself and found that YES.I can run multiple LED's off one resistor.

Thanks for all the mind boggling formulas and theories. I will bare them in mind.
