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

Well I've run out of wire AGAIN. That's roughly 90 meters this week alone! :shock: Now finally bar one point motor (not installed yet although wires have been run to it's location), that's all point motors on the rear of the layout wired up apart from 2 relays that need buying and installing for the...

Re: Flashbang's website diagram?

Thanks for that Flashbang. I didn't realise you were still editing your reply until I previewed my response. So I ended my last post quickly to re-read all you wrote. ;) So by using a GM500 for the semaphore AND the LED panel indicators it will work by using them as separate circuits (1,2,3 and 4,5,...

Re: GM500 + Dapol Semaphore + LED panel indication

The Dapol signal has 16 v AC feed directly to it (not to the GM500) Sorry this link didn't work properly which may have confused things. The info I was referring to is down a couple of posts showing the actual Dapol information posted which doesn't match mine in terms of the power needed for the se...

Re: How to test a Hornby-Dublo 3 rail loco

Thanks members. :) It's a Hornby Dublo EDL17 Class N2 0-6-2T 69567 A friend was given some trains and asked (as he knows I use the forum) if I could ask around for some help to identify them and how to test to see if they work. He doesn't have any track or a controller and is miles away for me to he...

GM500 + Dapol Semaphore + LED panel indication

I have been looking at the GM500 relay and how I could implement it for both control panel indicator LED's AND a dapol semaphore signal as I am not using it to power a points frog. Hopefully giving me both circuits to work with. Below as an example shows: A colour light signal on one circuit A point...

How to test a Hornby-Dublo 3 rail loco

Can someone please tell me how do I test a Hornby-Dublo 3 rail loco to see if it works?

On 2 rail locos I use a 9v square battery on opposite wheels but I don't know how power is picked up with 3 rail loco's.
Thanks

Re: How to improve the free running of my carriages?

I wonder if using some graphite might help. Perhaps on the axle ends?
Are the back to backs on them correct?
Thanks

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

Wiring, wiring and more wiring is all I have been doing lately. I did have some fun twisting looms of three 10 metre wires together with a drill, secured in the kitchen with a clamp and stretched right out of the front door and halfway down the path! :shock: :lol: Now all point motors on the rear of...

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

Today I finished adding the final 2 Gaugemaster PM20 surface mount point motors and I have been chasing back and securing wiring under the layout to tidy it all up before I add more wiring for the point motors and LED panel indicators. I think I have the wiring correct now to only use 1 wire back to...
