The Digitrax manual has no instructions as far as I can find to write an address to an accessory decoder. Section 24 refers to Switch Mode and how ...

Re: Which coaches for City of London/Bath?

Thanks for the response. I have a rake of the Hornby Clerestory coaches and was hoping they would be suitable. I notice Bachmann have changed the era to 2.

Re: Short arm Fret Saws

Thanks for the help.
Piercing Saws look a possibility.
Like most tools you need to get your hands on one to get the feel.
Mind you they are not that expensive.
