Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Happy GDPR day to all. :mrgreen: Nothing much going on at the moment although I did manage to get hold of a couple more Dapol WCHASS10 chassis's and have now replaced the broken one on one of my limited edition Cornwall wagons. I'm still waiting on wood and have yet to rewire/resolder the offending...

Re: Are Model Shows Worth Visiting?

I think so yes, although I havent visited the large model shows like Warley et al. I tend to go to local or club exhibitions like Crawley MRC's or down to Gaugemaster for thier annual exhibition. A lot of what I photograph whilst there is for inspiration and great ideas I can take "onboard"...

I honestly don't know Bufferstop. I went via his ebay account rather than his site.

Re: Hornby in the news today

Another day, another email from Hornby telling us about all thier new products... none of which are any good to me. And here we go again with Hornby's crazy ideas....... If a model is new tooling WHY ON EARTH would you make it LIMITED EDITION? https://www.hornby.com/uk-en/shop/new-arrivals/hitachi-i...

Re: Traing R.344 track cleaning car. Any good?

I received a message back from the seller who states...
"Hi there, yes they will fit but you need to squeeze the axle boxes to make the wheel run free. Thanks Peter"
Excellent. That will eliminate those pesky plastic wheels!. :)

Re: 0-4-0 dcc

Forgive me Dad-1. It was just the first video that came up on YT. I could have chosen any one from hundreds listed for the example.
As for "although SOME DCC systems don't like them." That to me is called incompatibility.

Re: Hornby in the news today

Just some meanderings... With the advancement of 3D printers I wouldn't be surprised if a few niche companies came into existance even if just for body shells (decorated or undecorated) for existing chassis's. I think for entrants into the hobby one of the biggest bug bears must be size of any propo...

Re: 0-4-0 dcc

For most the Hornby R8249 decoder will fit in and I have them Aren't these rather large compared to say a Lenz or Bachmann 6 pin decoder? In an 0-4-0 I doubt you'd need the extra pins unless lighting is required being that space is a premium in such a small loco. Might make it easier to install too...
