Re: Oh dear ..... an electrofrog conundrum

Hi Mick, glad you got your problem sorted. As said earlier to get the best out of electrofrog points they need to be modified (instructions on the Peco packaging) where you remove the two link wires, solder the switch rails to the outside rails and feed the frog wire with appropriate polarity when c...

Re: Ready Built baseboards and kits

Looking forward to seeing the build Terry - they can be assembled very quickly - but do read the instructions :D Barry Thanks Barry, must admit I'm quite excited but I will take my time. The only reason I said read the instructions is that the cross members all look the same - which they are, but I...

Re: 12V grain of wheat lights set up?

WTD is right. GoW bulbs used to be very popular for modelling, dolls houses etc. But they are a filament bulb and so get hot to touch and can damage card or plastic models unless you take care. LEDs are the way to go these days. They are cheap and come in all colours and sizes to suit. Just be aware...

Re: Ready Built baseboards and kits

And what gauge will it be Terry ? Thats a good question Brian. Actually I decided (after a lot of head banging) that as I had invested so much into 00 I will stick with that for this one. Total size will be 3300 x 750mm so no roundy roundy this time. You may be asking me that question because of th...

Re: Oh dear ..... an electrofrog conundrum

Shroomy asked you earlier what were you using to feed the frogs eg is it a switch on the point motor or one of those auto switch electronic gizmos. The idea of electrofrog points is you feed the frog with one side of the track power according to the direction that the turnout is pointing so providin...
