Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

After the first episode I wasn’t going to bother watching the second. A friend suggested I did however and it was a far better effort, much more interesting and less silly commentary. I don’t dislike James May but he really does need to say less at times: he got the balance just about right in epis...

Re: DCC Autofrog

The 'auto frogs' rely on a short circuit detection to quickly switch the polarity of the frog. In my opinion, a better way is to use Tortoise motors and wire so there is no short. You only have to remember that you wire each motor to the frog at the opposite end of the slip.

Re: Removing dcc

Re: J72 split chassis motor

Bigmet.
I think he's talking about a secondhand loco, could be wrong. I've got a split chassis J72 69023 that wore it's bearings out, so I made up and fitted some wiper pick ups. It now runs OK but sounds much like the coffee grinder mentioned by D605Eagle.

Re: Hattons Wholesale
