Re: From my Archives

Many thanks for sharing your pics Phil :)
Some great shots that I could never have seen as I was not even a twinkle in the eye for most of them :lol:
In fact it felt like watching an old Pathe film reel perhaps with a title "Britain on track"
Excellent stuff !!
Thanks

Re: Ultimate Point Motor Data List

Does the SEEP PM-1 not hav a switch i.e. an AUX CONTACT in your list Timbersurf?
Might be an idea to add a column for SWITCH ON BOARD &/or ADD-ON SWITCH AVAILABLE (if this is not what AUX CONACT means) ???
Great idea though. :)
Thanks

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

£28 :shock: that's a steal - dont suppose there are any more going :lol: Unfortunatly not. It was listed as NEW on fleabay, but when it arrived someone had stuck "Thomas " like faces on both locos. I'm not sure how to remove them as they are glued on without damaging the loco's, But at a ...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Just a quick update on my first layout. I managed to purchase a Bachmann Digital start set for only £28.00 so have a DCC controller and 2 DCC engines :D and have put in the order for the free baseboard materials which hopefully will arrive soon. Also slowly getting the track together I need. One thi...

Re: Dawlish Disaster!

And to top it all. It's the Intercity 125 high speed line!!! Just goes to show, us modellers could teach network rail a thing or 2 about baseboards and upkeep of a railway...even if it is 4mm to the foot :D Isombard must be turning in his grave. As for the re-route of the line, mentioned by the dope...

Re: No track underlay - Do you have 'good' ballast?

I am considering cork roll underlay under my tracks as I wish to have the "dip" inbetween the tracks. Sorry I do not know the proper term for it.
But one thing that eludes me is how wide should the cork underlay be for normal OO track?
Or is this just personal choice?
Thanks

Re: Ready wired point motor and switch

If you mean something like this Timbersurf http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/prewired-seep ... 2ecda0463c
Then one thing I would say is to make the wires colour coded for even easier installs.
Thanks

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Buying PPi will save a load of wiring! You only need two as some points will be paired and only need one switch and therefor one PPi input. Ahh thats excellent (and cheaper) news. I wasn't aware they could be used in that fashion. At a quick look I will need 11 switches and 22 LED's for the control...

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Many thanks for the diagram Timbersurf. It really does help me to see how things are wired clearly and concisely :) The difference is that the new PPi3 doesn't need resisters on the LED's! With resisitors so cheap these days I think the extra £10 for the PPI4-DC is excessive so will be adding at lea...

Re: Adding wheel pick ups

Are these wheelsets available to purchase as spares to be used with the pick up springs I metioned before on other loco's/coaches?

A quick update for St. Blazey's... I managed to buy a Bachmann digital starter set, Yes I know it's a train set :roll: , but read my forum signature below lol.

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

Re 16V DC, its usually quoted as 16VAC, the reason that its better than 12VDC, is that peak Voltage is theoretically ~1.414 times the RMS voltage = 22V! So a 16VDC is still less! Confused yet? :D Actually I come from an audio background so this makes sense to me in some aspects, but shouldn't the p...
