It is a nice looking loco and one that myself and a few friends rode behind along with Flying Scotsman from Brisbane down to Casino NSW and back... the trip where I decided to wear a white shirt with the inevitable result.
Again thanks for all the help guys. Down and dirty (Bigmet) would suit me just fine but I cannot see anything that looks like a capacitor in that gap. I also cannot figure out how to move the big grey block away from the black chassis frame to get a better look or hardwire. I think I have all the s...
Horses for courses I suppose, but I don't like Digitrax or TCS decoders. Lenz are good and I used to use them, but I've standardised on Zimo now for both sound and non sound. I had a DIgitrax (DH123 I think) and have had a couple of TCS and these showed the symptoms that you're describing.

I'm here and while the weather's not too hot (spring time in Qld) I've been doing a few things on the layout. The trouble is, that like yesterday, I fitted a new sound decoder with speaker, stay alive and crew and then remembered that I meant to do some pic's of the process :roll: I'll try harder in...
Great Scott. Truly, humans are the only creature that invents problems to solve. You think!! You should have seen our old dog trying to decide which way round to lie in his bed. This was after he'd made a right mess of it to start with. I think he spent more time going round in circles than he did ...

Reminds me of that song... They're coming to take me away ha ha.
The good old 40' spread axle trailer. Hot summer day in Deptford. Had to take a tightish right hand turn to get to a building site. Made a proper mess of the bitumen. Really nice models there Jim.

I've posted this on another forum but got no answers, so I thought I'd try here. I've got this strip here for a friend who made it smoke; I don't know how, but I've found a component that looks burnt. It looks as though it could be a voltage regulator with it's three legs but there are no markings o...

Ees good, ees look like real theeng (just yank out that tension lock!). Out of curiosity, how have you secured the ballast? As far as Zimo decoders are concerned, I guess I am being a bit unfair as I have only had experience if the sound version fitted to the new Class 159 and I really don't like h...
