Damned expensive. :D

Re: 6 pin decoder - common positive for functions?

You use one of the power feeds (ie black or red from the wheel pickups) instead of the common positive, or both can be used if you include a couple of diodes to prevent a short circuit.

Re: Accurascale to announce UK OO loco at Warley

I'm pretty sure that there is a modified Kirby uncoupler which does allow delayed uncoupling but I can't remember where I've seen it!

It's shown in this video https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/495114552766816020/

Re: Identify decoder

You need to read CV7 & CV8. Then look up those values on the NMRA site.

CV8 gives the manufacturer number and CV7 contains a version number, if any.

List of manufacturers https://www.nmra.org/sites/default/file ... -9.2.2.pdf

eg Hornby is 48 and Bachnann is 101

Re: Camelot Junction

Choose a new name. Why copy someone else?
You could always add that it is inspired by Camelot Junction.

One thing I am surprised about is Gaugemaster and NCE being different as didn't Gaugemaster buy NCE controllers and rebadge them under licence?


Gaugmaster's DCC controllers are rebadged MRC controllers.

Re: Fading motor...

Could be the controller at fault then. Quite an old controller that might not have enough grunt for the old XO3/XO4 motors.

Re: Any recommend 5amp power supplys

No. You can't just use a bigger post supply of any description. It needs to be a smart booster SB5 or possibly an old dumb booster, DB5, but I'm not sure a DB5 is suitable. There may be other possibilities but they won't be cheap either.
