Re: Anyrail connection query

R638 is a useful curve, normally used off a Y point to gain parallel tracks into say an engine shed or sidings.
R606 is 2nd radius which is what Hornby standard points are.

Re: Frog Juicers - Light Loco Problem

Rather than think of DCC as polarity think of it as phasing.
If you get your phasing out of synch - i.e. one waveform rising when the other waveform is falling then its the same as crossing + & - polarity.

Re: Train tech signals

With the TT signal in learn mode you simple send a command from the app to change the signal. If you use say >> 3 for that signal then press that. Next time you send that command in normal mode that signal will light that colour. On a normal controller and the TT signal in learn mode, you select the...

I power my CDU from the 15vAC Aux output of a redundant DC controller (HM2000).

Re: Useful DCC Links

There is a review page on RMWeb DCC section of various DCC controllers which is reasonably well up to date.

Re: Choosing a DCC Controller

He, He RAF96, That's almost heresy, But rather amusingly I've been at an exhibition for the last 2 days using a Hornby Select. It's very limited in what it does, almost no CV adjustments available to you, but although I'd not recommend it, I have 5 of them !! Geoff T Get them updated to v1.6 then y...

Re: Point clips

Point clips work fine for passing power to a siding or two, but be aware they are basically iron wire staples so not terribly good conductivity wise as the thin gauge will not pass much current. Do not rely on them to pass power to an extensive range of track past a point. Use droppers to bypass thi...

Re: Tools needed

RAF96, tight git, or what, but honest !! Hit almost everything in one. Not so - tight git. I have every power tool known to man but I prefer to saw by hand, put screws in by hand, etc. I do find a chop saw cuts accurate square ends nicely though, but involved time setting it up etc etc . OK - solde...

Re: Tools needed

You don’t need any power tools.
A hand saw, self drilling screws, a screwdriver, a pencil, a tape and set square. A long straight edge is handy for drawing lines as well as a spirit level for when you get to standing it on its legs.
