Sound decoder died in storage? (Repairable Maybe)

Hello All I hope that you can help me with some advice. I have a Bachmann class 08 DCC Ready and fitted a MX648R with the ZS08D Sound File I got from Digitrains. I am running my layout with the NCE PowerCab system. I fitted the decoder myself and it worked a dream and I was very happy with it. The l...

Re: Coppenhall Goods (Late Crest) 00

Its been a while since I updated this thread what with one thing and another. I have got some new rolling stock and tried weathering a few. But need to get some more done scenic wise. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4456/23699417548_d2707112e6_b.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4462/23835505898_b49...

Re: Weathering/Airbrush/Bachmann/Air Supply Question

I bought some weathering powders this morning and have had a tinker with them, I like the results especially as these are first attempt's. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4456/23699417548_e6a6e1e4ac_k.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4479/37519897712_217ba46279_k.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/...

Re: Weathering/Airbrush/Bachmann/Air Supply Question

Thanks for all the advice and opinions, I have considered all and decided to bin my airbrush and canisters.
I will go back to paints, washes and weathering powders.

Re: Weathering/Airbrush/Bachmann/Air Supply Question

There are no refills that's the point you recharge it with a tyre pump.
I also said a compressor is too noisy for me.

Weathering/Airbrush/Bachmann/Air Supply Question

Hi all I have a few Bachmann weathered wagons they have light weathering and I have some other Hornby and Bachmann wagons that are not weathered. I also have an Airbrush which the air supply is from can's and the amount of airbrushing I in-visage I cant justify the cost of a compressor and all the a...

Re: Scalescenes T022 Terraced Houses

When your ink ran out after only 20 sheets was it a new printer? Some times cartridrge's included with a new printer only have 10% fill. Also cheaper printers with the 3 inks in one cartridge don't hold much ink at all and need renewing even if 2 colours are are 50% full but one other low. Also try ...

Wagon Prefix Numbers

I am sure this must have been asked before but I just can't find it. Wagon running number prefix's, I think I may have got a couple but it seem to depend on era too. I am 1957 – 1966 British Railways Late Crest and I think if prefix is ' M ' then its ex-LMS and if ' W ' then its ex-Western! But what...

South Cheshire Model Railway Clubs???

I know about the Alsager Club but I keep seeing bits and pieces about a Crewe Club and living in Crewe this interests me but a google search brings up little detail and no contacts or venues?

Any one know any more?

Re: When Were Real Electric Points Introduced

That information will do me. I have a layout 1960 - 64, but with 14 points it would be complicated to get rods to them all. A couple will be hand operated, and with this info I can have some rod controlled and some electric.

Thank you 'Ex-Pat' :D
