Re: Powering Peco PL11 point motors

You only need a single cduwhich is switched to each point motor, not one per motor.. Google Brian lambert and look on his electrics page at the wiring necessary.

Re: Which DCC System for shunting

Some decoders can be switched into shunting mode, effectively altering the speed curve to give better control at low speeds.

Re: Dazed & Confused

Once you have read the cvs in railmaster using the eLink attached to a programming track, amend any cv value by clicking on it and back spacing until the value has gone then type in your desired value. Now click the pencil icon to write those values to the decoder. As this happens the changed value ...

Re: Hornby TTS

F1 turns the channel 1 'background steam' sound off but channel 2 sounds can still be played. Many thanks. Does that mean that steam chuff is always present. F1 refers to the background 'steam hissing' sound. In effect then can the sound not be easily muted from the controller other than by CV mani...

Re: Question about Hornby DCC Controllers

You must use the dual socket as Hornby caution against daisy chaining them, which of course is only possible if you also have an Elite controller. The only difference between a Select and a Select Walkabout is the former has a power supply and the latter hasn't, as it uses the RJ cable for its suppl...

Re: Hornby Select problem

Fogging of the screen sounds like delamination. Loss of characters or corruption of the display can be due to a problem with the 'zebra' connectors - see here http://www.google.com.cy/search?q=zebra+connectors&nord=1&biw=1377&bih=952&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei...

Re: Auto Reverse with Hornby eLink

Slightly off topic - but Hornby Sapphire supports ADCC, which in conjunction with Lenz modules BM1, 2, and/or 3 allows some automation of locos. The BM1 module can be knocked up on veroboard using 5 diodes (4 one way and one the other with the pick offs in between. In conjunction with a break in the...

Re: Mystified

Early Hornby decoders were prone to runaway if anyone slammed a car door 3 streets away. Do a reset by writing value 8 to CV8, then readdress to your choice. They can't do that! ... The OP has a Select console which doesn't allow CVs to be written. I forget the Select is a tad limited in ability. I...

Re: Motor maintenance?

... The bumpers are missing, and the chassis is broken - the bit going from the central section round the front (which holds the drive unit in place) is missing, so it's not exactly a prime bit of kit :) If its in the state you say it is then a quick rinse under the tap wouldn't do it any harm :lol...

If you are having a particular problem you can send him you plan and he will help put it right and/or point you to the bit in the manual. I've found it very good for planning and can now knock up a shed sized layout scheme in a...
