Re: where are the members ???????

The Hornby forum does allow discussion of other manufacturers products and have done so for maybe 3 or 4 years now. The active promotion of other manufacturers products isn't allowed though if they are equivalent to Hornby's own products.

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Come on Roger, let us all know the official story ! I though it was something like :- LO w RI dgid O pen T ruck But could easily be wrong. I may not have found why the wagon is called Loriot, but a Loriot is a bird, an alternative name for a Golden Oriole. I think your interpretation is excellent a...

Re: Mixed Traffic Train Set R1236M (which DCC Chip)

It is quite possible to add a stay alive to the R8249 or R7274 decoder if you are handy with a fine tipped soldering iron.
A capacitor on its own isn't a stay alive, it needs a couple of extra components as well.

Re: Mixed Traffic Train Set R1236M (which DCC Chip)

These use the R7274 decoder. It's the same as the R8249 decoder but it only has a (non standard) 4 pin plug and socket.

Re: Missing brick paper producer

I think you must be thinking of papebrick .co.uk. Sadly the site is no longer working. It is believed the site owner passed away.

Try a search for free printable brick paper, there are lots of choices available.

Re: Wiring Seep PM1 With LEDs

Track cutters will not cut point motor drive pins and the blades would be badly damaged if you tried. Look after your Xuron's and they will last a very long time.
