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

Thanks for the replies members. I read you have checked all the droppers, but just to be double sure are all the red wire droppers on the top rail & all the black wire on the bottom rail on each track length ? Actually it is completely the other way round, black to top and red to bottom :lol: bu...

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

Today I have checked all the wiring and all the droppers and all is correct. No cross feeds and all red to red and black to black. Still I have a constant short circuit. Would adding DCC clips solve the problem or is there something deeper someone could recommend? They are not electrofrog points so ...

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

Strange connectors eliminated. Connecting the controller to a part of the DCC bus with only 1 pair of track droppers shows the command station still in a permanant state of short circuit. More investigation needed trackside to check any mis-dropped? droppers. There are still some to fit but those I ...

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

Here are some photo's so far. One of the good things about St. Blazey's is I can flip it up on it's side to work on it :) The top with most of the droppers in. 10.JPG 2 views of the underside. 11.JPG 12.JPG I had an idea that, as I made a DCC ring main instead of just a straight run round the basebo...

Re: OO Wagon Kits Questions?

I tried the Airfix cattle wagon albeit quite old now. It was not tooled properly with holes missing for the doors and the plastic wheels attached to a sprue on the outer rim of the wheel. Barmy :? It is sitting half built as without manipulating what was supposed to be properly tooled model it will ...

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

Well planning almost went to plan. One of the noggins will need to be moved to fit a point motor but apart from that no other motors will clash. I have run out of 7 / 2.0 wire which has been ordered today, but all track has been laid and all apart from a couple of droppers have been soldered to the ...

Re: Does my loco have a chip fitted?!

I was running a DCC'd loco last night and it crawled along for a minute but then shot off like yours did TorqueOfTheDevil, so possibly it does have a chip installed.
The only way of truly knowing is to open the loco I reckon.
Thanks

What is the product code TorqueOfTheDevil as possibly the service sheet has more information?

Re: coin cell coach lighting

The only problem I envisaged was not being able to find a battery holder to hold all 3 / 4 batteries. A quick look shows us that x2 are available giving 6v http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5PCS-6V-Hold-2X-CR2032-Button-Cell-Battery-Holder-Case-With-ON-OFF-Switch-Socket-/201328500359?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&a...

Re: coin cell coach lighting

An alternative, use a "cut / shaped to fit" breadboard / pcb board and attach the SMD's yourself, wiring the breadboard to the swtch / battery holder.
This will also make the fitting parhaps easier as the breadboard / pcb board is solid rather than flexible.??

Re: coin cell coach lighting

My simple answer is... i'm afraid I do not know as they are 12v? With cr2032 batteries at say 1v ??, you'd need 12 of them (cr2032), probably too big to fit in the coach. But another member may be able to clarify this. The parameters being that, they may run on less batteries but at a lower brightne...
