No problem - man flu can be highly incapacitating! I just had an e-mail from the UK distributor about the 2amp peak version (860014). He says he is keen to get it onto the UK market himself but they are only just now being produced by the manufacturer - but he anticipates they will still be 10. R-

hi Tdd yes i got comformation the blue and black cable are for a stay alive capasitor which has pleased me but now also causes me a a headache as i need to move the decoder from the cramped tender into the empty main body and so to a bit of a wiring conumdrum, how do i get the minimum four cables across the pin and plate connector of the loco and tender? has any one else encountered this and how did you solve it?

i missed a couple pages it seems after my last post i would not mind your inputs on this decoder should you get one as my hornby select and my lack of knowledge on cv's and all the pros and cons of them ,is incapable of giving the decoder a good review and will help me when i can afford to upgrade from the select

I've ordered one Cal646 - and will compare it against the Hatton's 10 one and let you know. R-

Presuming the loco and tender will always be married to each other you could just take the wires across, I've done this on a loco/autocoach coupling. However, if you have the room for mounting at either end, I would suggest you use a miniature plug and socket like these.

I also ordered one today Roger and will do a similar testing. It would be interesting to compare notes later..
