Re: old hornby points and point motors

i've spent almost 10 years living with these points, some of them work, and some don't, on DC, so should do on DCC. i am hoping to put as many old these old points as possible in sidings where they won't be operated by motors, only by hand, and won't need to hav as good a connection as trains won't ...

old hornby points and point motors

I am fairly sure that i want to motorize most of the points on my layout, save the ones in the sidings, with dcc control. i think i am ok with all the accessory decoders etc and how they work, and the point motors on these points: http://www.newmodellersshop.co.uk/images/Trains/Track/r8072_hornby_ri...

Re: A message to mr superquick card models

the only gripe i have with superquick is the actual cutting. it always seems to me that the lines that should be cored end up being cut, and the lines that should be cut are only very lightly scored :?

NCE power cab vs hornby elite

i am hoping to go DCC this christmas, and am still unsure, so, which should it be? i was originally thinking of hornby, as it can power many trains at once, and has all the functions i could ever want and many more. however i have heard that once you get past the basic running trains operations it c...
