Cornish?

Re: St. Blazey's Works and Depot

I've installed the decoder and the loco is moving albeit with quite a slow acceleration which I don't think I can change due to the EZ Command controller. So it's time to move on to the next part of this conversion, the lighting and stay alive part. The decoder itself has 2 wires to attatch to the s...

Re: A full oval railway or half loop?

I don't see why not. It's more a question of DC or DCC and how to isolate certain track sections if using DC.
Using DCC all the track would be powered, on DC if all the track was powered including the sidings you would move ALL locos at the same time.
Hope it helps

Re: A full oval railway or half loop?

I started off with an end to end 00 layout (thus the forum name) with sidings on a sort of Z shaped track layout with some of them hidden but soon got bored just shunting back and forth so now the plan is to extend the layout into a long loop with hidden passing loops at the rear, and add even more ...

Re: N Gauge Points - standard or long

Common rhetoric is to not use curved points.

Save Saltash Station

I came across an article in a modelling magazine about a campaign to save Saltash station which I thought I'd share. "Please support this project to refurbish a derelict Station Building at Saltash, in Cornwall. It will provide important community facilities for all, and help rejuvenate a run-d...

Re: Hornby replacement wheels

I'll echo Timbersurf's comment. Get yourself a back to back gauge. I change most of my wheels to Hornby wheelsets and many's the time they are not set right out of the packet. Just one example - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DCC-Concepts-DCG-BB145-1-x-Back-to-Back-14-5mm-Wheel-Gauge-00-H0-Scale-1stPost...

Re: Stay Live?

I ended up buying the DCC Concepts DCD-Z360 4 Function Decoder with Stay Alive for my HST but I want to use a stay alive with much better power than the one supplied with the decoder. At the moment, without any stay alive attached to the loco it stalls on my insulfrog points. The decoder itself has ...

Re: St. Blazey's Works and Depot

Ahh I see thanks Bufferstop. I ran the tests and also tried each brown wire on the front bogie connected to red one at a time and both worked, then I tried both together and that worked too. I'm wondering to use both as this may assist pick up. :idea: I am now going to solder the harness in but leav...

Re: St. Blazey's Works and Depot

The non motor bogie does not need tyres, but the wheels on one side should have the plastic gear inserts, purely to insulate the wheels. When assembled and ready to be fitted into the chassis, the wheels with the inserts should be on the opposite rail to the tyred and geared wheels on the motor bog...
