Push to make switches

I plan to install Dapol motorised switches on my layout. I know that I need push to make switches - I understand the principle of this. I may be being dim (this is a common occurrence) but is there a peco lever switch that will perform this function - obviously they need to be different to the passi...

Re: Location - shed codes

UPDATE

This evening I received an email from the Chairman, no less, of East Somerset Railway.

He informs me that many years ago ESR wanted their own code so they simply adopted the next one in sequence of the local codes.

As some of us suspected then! Decent of them to get the Chairman to reply.

Re: Location - shed codes

Hopefully I will hear from ESR in reply to my email to them at the weekend.

I just find it a point of interest.

Re: Location - shed codes

Didn't mean to start a fight! I can't see it either!

I do like a puzzle though!

Re: Location - shed codes

Thanks WTD & cheshire lines. I did notice the codes stopped at G and wondered if the heritage line just ‘grabbed’ the H for their own.

I’ve emailed the ESR - hopefully they’ll reply and if they do I’ll let you know.

Location - shed codes

I know this is a 'model' railway forum but today I visited the East Somerset Railway - quite close to where I live. I suppose you could argue ESR is a 'model' railway! Two of the locos there have plates showing the shed code 82H. I can't find this - lots of other 82s out of Bristol but not with the ...

Coupling issues

Not sure if this is the right place for this question, apologies if not. I have a Hornby (R6347A) GWR 20 Ton Brake Van. It has the wider but rigid couplings. It tends to derail some trucks it's coupled to which have the more flexible coulings - I think they are tension lock as they have a two pronge...

Re: Station Name Boards

Google was my first port of call! I have, however, now located them.

Here is the link if anyone would like it:

http://windward.f1p.co.uk/download/page ... Signs.html

Easiest is to save it in Adobe and edit from there.

Station Name Boards

I recently found a free pdf download, which was editable, for station name boards. Now I can't find it.

Anyone aware of this?

Re: Only one wagon derails!

The simple option seems to have done the trick - so far!

Removed axles. Flipped them over. Swapped ends.

So far no derailments.

Thanks for all your help, as always.
