Re: Track cleaning

if it deposits 'super conductive' material when you use it, surely that means the 'stick' is conductive and you cant then use it when the track rails are live as it would short them out? You could still use it with the rails tuned off / dead but I find it handy having a loco running around (well att...

Re: Railroad Flying Scotsman behaviour

Two things 1] There is a chip fitted 2 And if there is is it the right round Both points are worth checking but from my experience: 1) The loco won't run, it will sit on the track making a loudish buzzing sound (DCC current is AC, not DC the trains need without DCC chip) note: this is not a good id...

Re: Railroad Flying Scotsman behaviour

From what I understood if the signals get interrupted then the loco will continue doing what it was doing (assuming the powers not been interrupted) so if the stop command has been corrupted/lost due to dirt it will keep running as if its not heard the stop command. Either way, it's worth checking b...

Re: Railroad Flying Scotsman behaviour

Have you cleaned the track & the wheels of the loco?

Thought process is the commands could not be getting through to the loco due to dirt

Re: Track cleaning

IPA for general cleaning and track rubbers for anything it won't shift. I run IPA though my CMX track cleaning wagon which takes a fair bit of the hassle out of it. I ran a loop the other weekend for the first time in months (layouts in the shed), about 1/4 of the track needed a light going over wit...

Re: Back scenes

I really like the LSWR livery, but the extra cash needed for a club subscription pushes it a little to high. looking forward to seeing how its re...
