Re: PCU2 unit

Thanks both. Yes it's me being stupid. I looked at the diagram and it showed leads coming from the back and the front., whereas mine has three from the front. But yes the green goes back to the CDU. This is a diagram marked up by Greg at Gaugemaster ( my son called in, he lives near bye) the point m...

PCU2 unit

I am using a Gaugemaster 100MO,PCU2 GM CDU and PL11 point motors. there doesn't seem to be anywhere for the green wire to go. Gaugemaster don't have a wiring diagram for this set up and their explanation over the phone has only confused. I have scoured Brian Lamberts site but everything seems to poi...

Overlapping sleepers

Playing around with the new O gauge this problem arose. How do users cut and space out these overlapping sleepers/chairs etc?

Layout number three

Yes it's been a busy year. 00 layout 99% finished, 009 maybe 90% but number three just wouldn't go away. So the third layout of the year. O gauge, yes the gauge for grown ups and decrepit oldies with failing eyesight and the tremors. ;) This layout has taken over part of the garage, 24' long, main b...

Re: Winter is coming early.

Still awaiting winter. Anyway this little 009 project has occupied the last 6/7 weeks. Now nearing completion, so what's next in the pipeline? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48471591382_57eb5a2302_b.jpg untitled (5 of 6)-2 by Brian Tompkins , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/484714...

Winter is coming early.

The new 009 layout progresses. Seems a little odd, modelling snow in July sunshine. Gin and Tonics keep holding up progress ;) https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48289210407_dca88945be_b.jpg untitled (1 of 1)-6 by Brian Tompkins , on Flickr The idea is lots of nothing, a gravel works one end and a ...

Re: 009 Electro Frog

Strange.....I didn't write this.;) On DC you mightn't get the sparks but a 1amp thermal breaker at ~1.2 amps will hold on long enough to get the tip of the blade exceedingly hot, certainly hot enough to burn fingers and start softening plastic. Electromagnetic ones are in my experience too likely to...

Re: 009 Electro Frog

Stange, just spoken to Peo who assure me I haven't been sold "old stock'. Peo small radius Streamline points are not provided with the already connected frog wire. I didn't ask re other radii Streamline, maybe they are. Yes it is DC. Re the insulating joiners I don't plan using them, the idea i...

009 Electro Frog

Just finished wiring the 00 gauge layout, Cobalt motors/switches/ Peo Bullhead Unifrog . But starting on the 009 seem to be a bit lost. Years ago I used 00 Electro Frog but these new 009 versions seem a bit different. Please note, these are Streamline Electro Frog not Set Track. The old ones needed ...

Temptations

Still playing with fire. Let me explain. I am kicking off my 57 year old son into taking up MR. I made this little diorama to show him what could be achieved with little skill and in very short time. Then this morning I looked at it and decided to play. DISASTER!!!!! My next project was an 0 gauge.....
