Re: controller advice please

Those are the two manufacturers I looked at for a dual-track controller.

I plumped for the Gaugemaster, mostly because that's the one my model shop had, and it was a nice no-frills controller that looked bomb-proof.

Re: Alex3410 - My Railway

I use the Gaugemaster CDU, and I too have a double set of points to throw (Peco code-100 Electrofrogs), and it has no issues.

@Metadyneman

Ahh, that explains it.
But, what you are now telling me is that I was irritated by its absence for years, for absolutely no reason?

Re: Intercity 125

I remember thinking the only shortcoming of the original Hornby class 253 (I think that's what it was) was the lack of the roof 'bit'.

Oh phew.

I used to employ the first method years ago, and have all the equipment for successful execution of the second.

Re: Servicing an old Lima loco

On a similar Lima topic; What's the best way of cleaning existing traction tyres? I'm sure many cleaners end up destroying the tyres, so I'm not doing anything until I know for sure. Up to now it's been a soaking in washing-up water. Also, some traction-tyres seem to be made from a tougher 'rubber' ...

Will be interesting to see if it sells


Ohh come on. That is a bit silly.

Seems to me the pricing there is not so much the real cost of the item, but the cost of its popularity.
A new industry pricing model, methinks?

Re: Gresley collection

Locomotives these days are becoming overly detailed and it is a monumental task to get the product to a customer without damage occurring... I think I may have mentioned this before but...

Re: Meanwhile, somewhere near Tiverton...

You're welcome.

I intend trying more, but with better lighting, and who knows, the layout may even be even more completed.

Re: Meanwhile, somewhere near Tiverton...

I could make up a chassis, but I'll probably go for the easy option and next time I get to ordering something, I'll find a cheap working chassis to swap out.
