Re: 2 Point motor questions

You can replace it with a toggle switch. You need a SPDT (single pole double throw) switch whitch is sprung to return to centre. Pop to Maplins on Cheshire Oaks or order online (i use rapidonline.com) As for power supply for the points, have a look on ebay and pick up a cheap 19v laptop power supply...

Re: N Gauge - Wires only decoders - Digitrax or TCS?

No idea on the difference sorry but i use digitrax dz125s Buy them from the US for £12.50 each. Buy them in 10`s and work out much cheaper even with the postage.

Re: Will you buy a Class 70

Yes i will :D It`s ugly, it`s different, it looks like a big vice has had ago at it!! But, if the detail is right i think it will be a cracking looking model on any modern layout so i will be ordering one when they eventually release it in N!

Re: Waton - N gauge challenge

Some cracking modelling there Dave and some good little tips which you probably take for granted but help us beginners no end!! Good to see you`re not to proud to post the bits you`re not happy with and haven`t turned out as well as you hoped (water!) but will be interesting to see how you fix it so...
