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....

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

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!

Re: Hornby 31 TTS Chip

I've just discovered a whole thread about this problem on the Hornby forums. It seems as though Hornby require the chip to be returned for a "fix" but they haven't officially said so yet! If that is the case then I will have to put up with a "one way" loco as i really can't be bo...

Re: Hornby 31 TTS Chip

Thanks guys. This was a chip I bought as one of the new "chip & Speaker only" packages that Hornby have released so i will definitely be contacting them about it for the "FIX"

Re: Hornby 31 TTS Chip

My fun & games with a Class 31 TTS decoder is a bit weird and I haven't found any rhyme or reason why it does the following:- 1) i put loco on track No.1 end facing forward. Loco runs in both directions, Sounds work, and my fitted lights work. 2) Turn loco round 180 degrees, loco doesn't respond...

Re: Bachmann/Kernow 4-TC units

The DJ Class 71 has the same requirement, and again this is not documented. Furthermore the 5th function needs to be a logic function in both models and not a normal lighting function - again not documented in either. Some decoders, for example, the Zimo MX634C, are simply described as having 6 fun...

Re: Bachmann/Kernow 4-TC units

The thing that I find slightly irritating about all this is that nowhere on Kernow's website does it say that the unit requires at least a 6 function decoder to make all the lights work properly. Having spent the best part of £70 per coach - albeit highly detailed with working lights - I would have ...

Re: Bachmann/Kernow 4-TC units

TC has had a minor setback due to the requirement of a six function decoder ( or Lenz 4 function ) to make all the lights function properly. A normal 4 function one will only get the headcode theatre lights working. It did operate ECS round the garden successfully yesterday though. Word of warning. ...

Re: Hornby ex Lima DMUs

I have two BR blue Hornby class 101 3-car sets and one drive unit has tyres and one has not. Both were purchased new from the same dealer at the same time. Then I would suggest that the one without tyres is a slightly earlier manufacture than the one with tyres. Entirely feasible the two different ...

Re: Hornby ex Lima DMUs

Hornby do not fit traction tyres to their design of motor bogie, that replaces the Lima design - which were always traction tyred - and there's the start of the problem. It was very quickly realised when complaints started to roll in that the design of their bogie which replaced the lima drive unit...
