Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

I cannot see that I would ever done anything like that, but I did do some pretty bloody stupid things, with others, when a drunken teenager. The combination of alcohol, the pack and wanting to be ‘big’ can be a dangerous formula. Tony I did plenty of daft things when I was younger. Didn't need to b...

Re: Farish 08 only runs one way!

You can have the Select upgraded to V1.6. When upgraded it will then be able to read and write CVs and therefore reset decoders. It will need to be returned to Hornby for the upgrade.

Re: Fixing track to inclines

Check that anything you use to fix to foam doesn't dissolve it, depends what type of foam it is. Some mastics may not be compatible, test on scrap first.

Re: adding the Hornby R8213 DCC Select Controller

You can't use a Select and an eLink at the same time on the same layout. You must only have one DCC control system connected to the track at any time.

Re: Hornby R2522 class 67 dcc lighting

Re: Best way to wire up test track?
