Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

What are these 'referral orders they mention? Are they like probation? Punishment to fit the crime? Compulsory supervised attendance at a local model railway club and make them build a layout, let them see how much time and work is needed to create something to exhibition standard. Jim That could b...

Those of us with long memories know that you lost your credibility on here years ago with your rants and threats to other members!

Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

What are these 'referral orders they mention? Are they like probation? It's OK, I googled it and thought it was little more than a slap on the wrist. The spirit of it is, I think pretty good but why two warnings for non compliance? I can understand that keeping them out of prison is a good idea, bu...

Well that's something I never thought of doing :roll: I'll try that next time I want a roof. Have you ever looked at something that someone's invented and thought, 'why didn't I think of that.'

Re: Bachmann C class

Will you two pack it in! I can't afford either of these two loco's at the moment and when I looked in the mirror I noticed I've gone green. :wink: Sorry about that. My enthusiasm for the 0-6-0 as THE key type of railway locomotive in the UK for most of the steam railways existence, does tend to esc...

Re: Capacitors, chokes & mysteries - Bachmann "Hall"

It's the other reason I bought this off ebay FOR 99P!!! https://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/download/file.php?id=22312 The initial reason being that I was going to build an end to end layout and would need to r...

Re: DCC Problems

Something which might be worth trying if changes don't seem to "take" would be the same as sometimes works when you are trying to update a computer's BIOS, having done it and seen no change, disconnect leave it 24hours, then come back and look again. I have not a clue why it works but it'...

Re: Gear problem on keith park R2586

Mr Kohler even sorted out the customs mob and returned them all fixed up, also FOC. So it's not all bad. I've got a T9 which so far seems to ...
