Re: Is it possible to have 'like' function?

Re: peco point

Hi 1) Firstly, what scale are you using N or OO or something else? N motors drive pin and the motor itself fit onto the Peco point in a different place to OO scale. 2) Next, how are your feeding all the motors including the failed one? AC at around 16v or DC at between 18 and 21volts or something el...

Re: New Loco not working on programming track

That was going to be my next point Steve. What if the loco moves slightly, which I understand they can, and shorts out the gap. You ensure the section from IRJs to buffer stop used for programming is long enough to accommodate every loco/DMU etc plus at least 50mm. If that cant be achieved you shou...

Re: dcc digital

Hi Simplest DC to DCC conversion is to take all the rail feeds going to the outer rails and join them together and then do the same with all the feed wires to the inner rails - Ensure none are crossed over, or a short will occur. How you join them is up to you, but the use of terminal block connecto...

Re: New Loco not working on programming track

If you know the address of the loco then entering that should only programme that loco when using POM. If you do not know the address of a loco then either option should really still allow it to be programmed. But the danger doing this with POM is then all other locos on those POM rails will also be...

Re: For the railway modeller who has everything!!!!!!

I think the idea of plating them is to enable easier soldering where these pins are used on their working point rodding or as rail fixings etc? They are not solid gold and at around £3.95 pack of 100 wont get rich either! :lol:
