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...

Re: Flashbang's website problem?

Thanks Flashbang. :) It's this diagram I wanted to read the text that goes with that diagram to maybe understand it a little more. My confusion lies in how to wire up more than one LED for either direction on the control panel using the 1 wire to panel method and also whether I can rig up a Dapol se...
