Re: Garden buildings: chiefly large scale.

There's a lot of choice, and I think mine's not that far removed from some of the simpler ones. Anything large enough to have pillars in front would have been too big for anything else, (and to be honest too much work!). There are two Wesleyan chapels in my village, both now private houses. That's ...

Re: Garden buildings: chiefly large scale.

RUDDY BRILLIANT!!!!!! I used to live over the road from a Cornish engine house and your model of one is almost exactly the same! Also, who would have thought that the living dead enjoyed model railways, even in G(houl) scale :lol: One suggestion though on the church, have you thought about making it...

Re: DCD-ZNSA1 "Stay alive" from DCC Concepts

Thanks james2k. I was looking at the page 24

I found the actual diagram for the wiring on page 26.

Can I ask, is your method able to be implemented on all decoders?
Thanks

Re: DCD-ZNSA1 "Stay alive" from DCC Concepts

You can build your own for a £1 roughly.Saves me trying to solder to the pads on the chip. As my layout will consist of smaller loco's I have been thinking of some sort of "stay alive" unit but I cannot seem to visualise your circuit. Would it be possible to see a photo of one or a diagra...

Re: OO track spacing

I would splash out 25p on one of these - http://www.ehattons.com/13191/Peco_Products_SL_36_6ft_Way_Gauge/StockDetail.aspx . It will set the correct distance between the tracks and ensure it all matches with pointwork. In fact buy a couple. I did and just as well, as one of them snapped ... From Hat...

Re: DCC Concepts OO gauge wheel pickups.

Being a complete noob to DCC and railway modelling generaly, can I ask what this would be used for? These are added for extra power pick up on wheels that don't usually pick up current, so if a wheel that DOES have power pickup leaves/lifts off the rails (over point work etc.) then another wheel ca...

Re: DCC Concepts OO gauge wheel pickups.

Hmm they look interesting. I was loking at DCC Concepts pick up springs but couldn't warrant the cost of around £30 as I would not need 40 of them.
Please do let us know how you get on with them, and perhaps some close ups of fitting them??
Thanks

Re: St. Blazey's - My first layout

I have been trying to figure out my wire colour coding for my layout, more specificly the SEEP PM1 point motor wiring. I have made a picture of the wire plan for a single point motor, but I am not quite sure if it's wired correctly. ST Blazeys Wiring Colour SchemeSM.JPG The white R boxes are the re...

Re: More SEEP questions

Ahh I have a tip for mounting them from a carpenter/modeller. Don't screw them in, stick some sticky backed velcro on them to attach to the baseboard then check alignment. Once they are exactly where you want them, THEN screw them in. Trying to drill a hole 1mm next to another hole is impossible. Th...
