Re: DCC Conversion

No frog juicers on my layout, just properly wired point's, crossings and slips, and no shorts or dead spots. It's quite easy once you get used to it and if you've got 60 odd points, you'll be flying through them after the first one or two. The problem is how you've fixed them down. If you can slide ...

Re: Just gone back 96 years

Ha ha. Just like fashions. I've probably still got some flared trousers but I bet the waists have shrunk.

Re: Where we came from...

100% correct b308. On the two forums I most frequently use, there's very little conflict about train sets or model railways. Can't be said about all of them though.

Re: Bachmann 32-525ds deltic ticking sound when turned off

End2end, yes I think that's what he's talking about. Spirax valve? Whatever, it's a sound that's supposed to be there. I might even have a listen to mine later on. It's also Bachmann but the NRM one to which I've fitted an ESU decoder with an earth mover speaker.

Re: Bachmann 32-525ds deltic ticking sound when turned off

Have you tried turning the juice off or lifting it off the track before the sound is actually finished? My thinking is that it's supposed to be representing exactly what you're saying about the cooling down sounds, so I think that lifting it off before it's finished would negate the effect of any st...

Re: Making life easy

I cut the legs off an old chair (steel legs), and using the base of the cushion, screwed four four inch rubber castors to it and I now have a mobile under layout chair.

Lost Post

I seem to have lost a post re: the Model Railway vandalism. Has it been taken down or what?

Mod : Not to my knowledge - but one of the 'Lost Post' messages removed as duplicated.

Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

Come on chaps, even RMweb are managing to stay vaguely civilised without the rather unattractive baying for blood. There's a justgiving page set up for folk to show support, I'm sure despite money being only a small fraction of what was lost with all that kit/scratch built work, the folk affected w...

Re: Wanton Vandalism of layouts

Not only hit then with the total bill for the damage (though I can't fathom how much you'd factor in for all the hours of work) but also every weekend in the stocks for the next year or so. I'd even supply the tomato's... tinned of course. :x
