Re: Accessory Controller

I'm not saying they don't exist but I have yet to see a laptop charger that has anything other than a single coaxial connector, the "clever charging bits" being the first thing connected to the laptops input socket. I have a number of stand alone hard drives which have a four pin connecto...

Re: slow moving trains all of a sudden

I'm not familiar with your system, but is there a shunt mode that you have accidentally engaged?

Re: DCC Wiring question…..

I would also fit insulating rail joiners to both sets of points at the top of the drawing, not that they are needed (in theory) but there are occasions where they are found to be necessary to prevent shorting when trains pass through, especially if running older stoc or stock whose wheel back to bac...

Re: Jubilee......unplugged

Examine the plug and socket carefully (with a magnifying glass?) and make sure you have the plug the right way round to align with the socket.

It's rubbish. Invest in a Gaugemaster for (almost) total reliability and a lifetime guarantee.

Re: Peculiar Points behaviour - shorting controller

There are quite a few reports of this fault occuring. Some points are being produced ready for use on DCC layouts and these seem to be getting mixed up with the dc versions.

Are they marked underneath with a manufacturer's name? Is it Hornby or something else.

Re: Gaugenaster Prodigy 2

Overload. From page 2 of the manual "In an overload situation oVLd will now be displayed on the screen, and short circuits will cause SVdA to be displayed."

You may find it helpful to download a PDF version of the manual, which is easier to search through.

Re: Bachmann Class 108 32-904DC

I would try sticking it back together with a solvent adhesive such as MEK or EMA plastic weld solvent. It may not work but you have nothing to lose by trying. Allow 24 hours for it to set before handling.

Re: My paint is too thin?

What is latex paint? I've seen/heard references to it on some American YouTube videos but I haven't a clue what it's supposed to be used for.

Re: A Question of scale...

Many, possibly most, canals are set over to one side. The pathway (towpath) was there for the horses to pull the boats along before they were motorised and the towpath only needed to be on one side. In some places the towpath would swap over from one side to the other. Canal owners didn't waste mone...

Re: Hornby connecting clips. DC or DCC by sight

Just flip them open, if there is a capacitor inside then it's analogue. No capacitor and it's digital. Cut the capacitor out of the digital ones and it becomes digital.
