Re: Printing

Thanks for the suggestions so far. mulling over if using a CD marker pen might give acceptable result on windows, or the Metcalfe engine sheds a 'runner' without the roof/ventilators. Decisions decisions. Useful info for others contemplating also. Thanks Beeman.

Re: Decoder voltages

All these replies suggest that if the OP had done some homework and READ/ SEARCHED for his decoder instructions etc., he would/should have had his query answered rather than asking what seems an open ended question, Sorry but too many seem to do this rather than using their OWN 'grey matter' Beeman.

Printing

Some of the card building kits suggest printing 'windows' on acetate sheet. Is this possible on water base ink printers, any advice please as to how and what is needed. Wondering if worth the trouble/cost for proposed carriage shed/works, against buying ready to build kit. Beeman.

Recently used the Bachman decoders 36-553/4 outputs for Seuthe smoke units which were rated at 10-14 volt @700 mA. The specified O/P being 800 mA. Check the appropriate tech details for whatever ones u use. Beeman.

Re: HS2 phase two

Remember 'CONCORD' the nearest most of us 'plebs' got to that and were ever likely, was in the passenger lounges or maybe Yeovilton. Be interesting to see if a 'Railcard' is useable.

The J72. I think was the first loco offered by Mainline/ Palitoy, Coalville. Their initial production Hong Kong built, was often rubbish, poor running usually due to wheel quartering and gearing.

Re: OO People

I agree totally with B308. I've used the China offerings inside many coaches and quite adequate usually needing lower leg amputation.
