Re: RMWeb forum joining???

Try it with just one "n" maybe

Edit. Tried it myself - no go. I think the registration system may be bust. I got an error code returned.

Have you tried the "contact us" at the very bottom of the page?

Make sure that the plug is pushed fully home into the socket.

Re: carbon Black

Is carbon black conductive? That could cause problems.

Re: Peco points and Fleischmann track

You may be causing a "reverse loop" type of problem as you join the extra track on. A drawing or photo of you layout would be very handy to help determine if that is the case.

Re: Prodigy sounds stuck on

Hi Forfarian. Ironduke and mjb1961. I have gone through programming to where it says CV. I press shift then 63 which according to the instructions with my loco, is overall volume. I can see “DATA” on the screen, but nothing has happened on the last ten mins. Doesn't this mean that it's waiting for ...

Re: Five pin plug and socket required.

It helps if you plug the plug that you are wiring into a matching socket. This helps to dissipate the heat.

Re: Should I use dropper wires for this simple layout?

Do not solder the fishplates!!!!! This will almost certainly cause it to buckle as it gets colder and warmer. The fishplates allow the track to contract and expand.

A bus of an appropriate sized cable will conduct electricity far better than the track.

Is this a dc or a DCC layout?

Re: Old Locos, DCC decoders and Hornby Select

There is a LOT of very out of date information about the Select (and Elite) on the web and it still gets trotted out by retailers who should know better. It was quite poor when it first came out but over the years the firmware updates have made it into a very reasonable controller. The Select will w...

Re: peco pl-11 point motor

Check that you have the wiring correct. The green wire is the common connection on Peco point motors but the black wire is the common on Hornby motors.

Re: Elf'n safety (Not a joke)

Have you tried hitting the heads with a hammer to shatter them, or are they "soft" plastic?
