Re: Carriage lighting now working

I have a new Bachmann Class 108 DMU and oddly all of the lights are under control of F0 - directional lights, destination boards and cabin lights. Mind you the cabin lights are so dim as only to be noticeable in a darkened room or if you look up into the units.

Re: TTS Tender Buzz

Reset the controller first, then each decoder.
Do you see the same outcome.
If so connect the controller to a simple piece of track and try again, away from the layout.

Re: Air fryers

We had a well known make of tilted air fryer which is supposed to tumble the chips, but it just slushes them round and you end up with a clump of chips.
Not a popular bit of kit with head of cuisine, so it was passed to a needy relative, who we don’t really like.

Re: Bachmann 36-567 or 36-567A?

It uses a function button to modify the CV4 setting. Usually as Rog says the longer you hold it the harder it brakes, a bit like your car.

Re: DCC Concepts Legacy Powerpoints

Over priced, unnecessary, and may well get damaged in transit? :o There are many other methods of transferring rail power board to board and much cheaper too! Eye watering pricing for such a simple product. A plug in choc block can align and transfer power at a fraction of the cost. 39EB1ED5-115D-4...

Re: It must be Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Moving along to tales of British Gas and the Electricity Board .. At the old house the gas and electric meters were inside what used to be the original garage. It had been converted to a bedroom and a bigger garage extension built on. The meters were hidden in a DIY cupboard, not ideal. I asked BG a...

Re: It must be Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What was the problem with the drop wire from the pole Rob. We have had ours changed once. The wire from the pole at the bottom of the drive to the old house was lashed to a catenary and it used to deteriorate as the wind blew it about. Fatigue at the ends I suppose. Every now and then we would lose...

Re: Hornby Select

Thank you once again for your replies, they have certainly given me food for thought. Ah well back to tracing the "short circuit"!!!. :( :( John Tracing shorts is easier if you check as you go. Imagine if your track is all ballasted and you need to put bits of track apart to check for shorts...
