Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Thanks for the replies members. As long as you buy code 100 track, then you can join it to your flexitrack with no issues whatsoever The flexitrack would be connecting to a Peco ST-241 left hand point. Sorry I don't know what code this track is? Sorry to put a downer on this however you state you ar...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

SOLVED!! :mrgreen: By adding 2 IRJ's each between points 1 and 4 & 9 and 14 this solved the short circuits. All droppers added (bar one that fell off at the end of one of the sidings) and running mostly smoothly. I think some of the wagons and 4 wheel coaches need some weight as sometimes they ...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I'm curious to know what gives with those points, I've had electrofrogs with no continuity. The only settrack points 've had that did that were deliberately modified ones. I'm with you Bufferstop. The points look A OK by sight with no modification whatsoever. Strange, very strange. :? The only thin...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Helpful chap booked for tomorrow so shall let you all know the synopsis. Who'd have thought railway modelling was edge of the seat stuff :?: :lol: I think you maybe right PNP about the broken point, but if that is the case then there's more than 1 to replace. More drama than Dallas, more current tha...

Re: 2 track running line to 5 track termanus station

Perhaps something like Penzance? Albeit you would need to add the additional platforms. http://www.crjennings.com/The%20Remains%20of%20Britains%20Steam%20Age%20Railway/page%203/Penzance-1911.jpg By swapping the rightmost points the other way that should give a transfer route to the other track. Than...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Thanks ParkeNd for your inspiring words. As a returner to the hobby, that I wasn't very good at from many moon's ago, I hadn't even heard of electrofrog points or having to add extra wiring to points. But I will say in my personal case, and as stated before, I need to use setrack points due to thier...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Whoever said insulfrogs were easy, specially with DCC :roll: Most definatly Bufferstop. I tried to make my first layout as simple as can be. No turntable (as at the real St Blazey), no reverse loops, no electrofrog or double slip wiring, DCC instead of DC but it seems the step between twin oval tra...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

From what I managed to find online they are definatly insulfrog, as I expected, from what I bought. All points are exactly the same geometry. The only difference is the size of the plastic insulator between the frog rails. All have one but it differs in size.
Thanks

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Is it possible that the insulation has been damaged previously. Not it seems even after looking using a high powered jeweller's loupe. If IRJ's are not the soloution then I am a dead end for ideas except that the points are causing the problem. All wiring connections have been checked multiple time...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Performing the continuity tests on the points, after testing a certain point (number 14, point 4 still removed ) the polarity crosses on the rail so the negative rail has continuity to the postive rail of the track it is set to which looks like it is then causing the short. Although the diagram belo...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Straight away I can see that there's a length of red rail between points 2 and3 that can only be connecting to anything through the point blades. You may want to put in and additional dropper, rather than shuffling labels around we can call it Bb. Yes the holes are drilled but no droppers added the...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

Attaching the bus to only 1 point A, removing point 4 stops the short circuit. Adding it back in with the rest of that siding removed still incurs a short circuit.
I'm wondering if it is some of the points causing the problem.
Thanks

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout - Stage 3 Building

I have just been looking at some of the points with a friend and noticed that some look slightly different. Would having electrofrog points in paces on the layout cause the problem? As on the points the plastic seperating the V rails looks like current could jump across to the wrong track.? Thanks E...
