Re: DCC Assistance

I am half asleep at the moment, so maybe totally missing the point :lol: Do you need to connect it to the internet? my understanding was the wireless router is provided alongside the z21 to enable a wireless connection from your device to the z21 itself, this may just work as a standalone 'offline' ...

Re: Hornby Steampunk models

Maybe they are a little early with their April fools this year? :lol:

Re: New Range announcements

Thanks for the link, much easier to digest then via the Hornby website. What really stood out for me was the tinplate 0 gauge locos, I have the original green clockwork one on the shelf in the living room and love how it looks, would not mind having a red or blue one next to it just not at those pri...

Re: Hattons Announces 4 and 6 wheel coaches

The price per coach is less then I would have thought, but so many attractive liveries that it's going to be hard to narrow the wish list down to something manageable :lol: The announcement today with such a long lead time sounds like they are 'staking their claim' and trying to scare off others who...

Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

That is with recording it, I watch it once with the kids so they can see what people do and how you can make a layout look, then I watch again with my wife who sits quietly until I try watching something, then doesn't stop talking.
