Bachmann Wickham Trolley

I'm looking for a non runner Bachmann Wickham trolley in OO. Colour unimportant, but Maroon would be great if available.
I note that I can obtain brand new fully working for £69.95, so a non running model would have to be significantly cheaper!

Re: Flashbang's website diagram?

Hi Yes, the GM500 is indeed similar to the switching on a PM1 but is far more reliable and of course offers two electrically separate sets of change-over contacts. For a comparison "F" on a PM1 would be 1 or 4 on a GM500 with "D" & "E" being 2 & 3 with 1 or 5 &a...

Re: Flashbang's website diagram?

You can use either AC or DC. If you use DC ensure its a Regulated power supply (CCTV or LED PSUs are ideal) then the 12v DC can also be used to feed LED panel indications. But on no circumstances allow any voltage to get onto the Yellow Dapol wires. The GM500 operation has to be from a momentary sup...

Re: Flashbang's website diagram?

The two set of contacts on the GM500 are totally separate electrically. The Dapol signal has 14v AC or 12v Regulated DC feed directly to it (not to the GM500) The two signals yellow wires connect to one set of unused GM500 relay contacts. One yellow on 4 (or 1) and the other on 5 then link 5 to 6 as...

Re: how good is the Hornby silver/black controller?

Its relatively low powered output causes many issues. :o
There are far better (probably more expensive!) DC controllers available, that do not suffer this issue. Gaugemaster and Morley are two makes

Re: Single track shunting layout

Chris. You can not shunt on a single track! All you can do is go forwards or backwards. That's not really shunting, in the sense of moving wagons around in their order or detaching/adding wagons etc. What are you actually after?? Please be more specific. Next is, will you actually ever build anythin...

Re: RKpdu2 Power Distribution Module for Model Railway

It is a ON/Off switch module. It is not suitable for use with Solinoid point motors. If you want to use this particular supplier/make of unit then... For Solenoid motors you need this one... Link 1 Or this smaller version... Link 2 Note the one you have shown has two output terminals per switch, whi...

Re: Flashbang's website problem?

E2E Your questions answered... If you want additional LEDs, then wire them together with their series resistor across the ones already shown. You cannot operate a Dapol signal from this circuit. The Dapol signal requires on its two Yellow wires, to be connected to a volt free contact. This can only ...

Re: LED resistors

You are correct. But doing this gives the MINIMUM resistor value in Ohms required. Increasing the resistance a little lowers the current consumption but does not reduce the LEDs illumination level and it also allows more LEDs to be add to the power source! Of course, if the Ohm value is increased sh...

Hi
Welcome to the forum.

I would suggest the 'Scenery' section is the best place.

Re: third party power supply DC 19V 2800 mA

Hi all A word of caution - Sorry! Ex PC power supplies or those that can provide excessive current that exceeds around 2 Amps at 12 volts need extra special wiring and some form of circuit distribution with individual down stream circuit protection - Fuses or self resetting Circuit Breakers. I would...
