Re: LED fitted Brake van.

Put it on a bridge rectifier and it will always work which ever way round it is on the track or DoT. I tried a simple one in one of my brake vans, but didn't put the diode or rectifier in as it has only one coupling, so will only travel one way. But I forgot it was on the track :oops: and I now have...

Re: newbie question

Have you tried cleaning the wheels? Surgical alcohol or Meths should do it and check the pick-ups are in contact with the wheels.

EDIT lubricating the running gear wouldn't go amiss either

Re: Hand lay points

No problem. I've nearly done the same thing myself, and then though 'what section is this in?' :) After looking at the only 2 places I can find..... 2mm Soc would cost about £40 per point (jig being £24 + £4.50 per template) so about £12 each after getting the jig FastTracks Approx £150 to make 5, a...

Re: Hand lay points

I'd have thought, with it being in 'N Gauge Model Railway' :roll: :wink: Marcway do just 0, 0-16.6, 00/H0 and 00/EM, none of these are N or have I missed a bit. Can't find anything on C+L, just 4mm or 7mm :roll: :roll: I should have thought of 2mm society and N Gauge society :roll: Once I have the d...

Hand lay points

Other than Fast Tracks, does anyone do kits or parts for points? I have tried various searches and can only find Marcway, who have code 40 and sleepers, but no points.

The reason is, I have been offered some Cad drawings of prototypical points of those used at the various steelworks around here.

Re: To DCC or not

The only advantage I can see in DCC is the lights are on or off and not dependent on speed. DC can be made to do what you want, want to have travel only possible one way, add diodes, want a section slow speed only, add resistors. I can't think of seeing a module to slow a loco for a section and then...

The name. :!:

If a parent or grandparent walks into a toyshop looking for a train set for little Johnny, they see a Hornby one and a Bachmann. The chances are they have heard of and remember Hornby from when they were small and get that.
