Re: Bachmann Cl 47

Being old enough to remember head codes in full use (when everything in life was in monochrome lol) I am aware the second character is a letter but in practice (as seen in the attached picture). It looked like a row of zeros hence my original comment :-)

Re: Hornby 2019 Range Speculation Thread

Nothing in it for me this year. My wallet can now cool off for a year having purchased a rake of 8 Bachmann superb Mk2fs with DCC lighting!!

Re: Kernow-Dapol D600 Warship

Sounds interesting. I must say I've never had an issue with Bachmann Peaks or 40's which have effectively the same bogies. No neither have I and they are good runners too. However Bigmet is correct in the description of the Kernow "floating" bogie in so much as the long 1Co-Co1 bogie on t...

Re: Bachmann LBSCR H2 Atlantic release

For anyone panicking about finding a 12-pin decoder, Metadyneman has typed it dyslexically, and it is, in fact, a 21-pin interface (no criticism intended here). Oops... now corrected! How the eyes do fool you. I read it as 21 in the first place and had to skip back to convince myself. :roll: My mis...

New Bachmann Mk2f Inter-city coaches

I have taken the plunge and ordered 8 of these fine beasts. Inter City executive livery DCC fitted with full lighting. 2x FO 5x TSO and 1 x BSO. Not cheap and just over £500 for the lot and I have since put the credit card in the freezer to cool off. However, I will be putting some videos up on YouT...

Re: Kernow-Dapol D600 Warship

I managed to procure one of Kernow's Bulleid diesels when they had a sale of orders that had not been paid for. I wasn't originally going to buy one but the opportunity arose so I just "pressed the buy button". The build quality is very good indeed and there are no "saggy bits" a...

Re: Bachmann LBSCR H2 Atlantic release

I have purchased the BR black version "Beachy Head" and can confirm that it is a magnificent hauler. I had it running round the garden with 10 Bachmann Mk1s the other day. In it's latter days the real "Beachy Head" could be seen running with Mk1 coaches so i'm happy with the fact...

Re: Kernow-Dapol D600 Warship

If its running qualities are as good as the Bulleid diesel I recently purchased it will be a great model to run and definitely on my "to obtain" list

Re: DAPOL 121 BUBBLE CAR

I'm not sure why but think you will find that the interior lights may work if you press F5. I'm not sure why you cannot get F2 to latch though. Most functions on decoders are set to latch by default. have you tried re-settng the decoder to default by changing CV8 to value 8? I only found this out as...

Re: DAPOL 121 BUBBLE CAR

It should be noted that the current (blue pcb) Bachmann 36-557, 6 function decoder will work the front and rear directional lights and the individual cab lights but the interior lights will remain on constantly whilst the unit is on powered track. For some reason the interior lights will not switch ...

Re: Jules's garden Railway "Bambrough Town" Update

That looks impressive, I take it you remove the vehicles etc after a running session? They are all stored inside the shed when not being run. I have a huge amount of stock and most of it is stored on shelves on inside the shed. some stock remains on the track inside the shed after running sessions....

It has given me years of pleasure, and with me having retired at the end of December I can see it getting a lot of use in 2018!

Re: Jules's garden Railway "Bambrough Town" Update

Just an update on Jules's garden railway... now entering year 16 of it's illustrious existence. No major construction took place in 2017 but there was a lot of train running!
