Re: conecting multiple dropper into i to connect to bus wire

I also use terminal blocks. Added advantage - if you have a problem with wiring in a particular section it's easy to disconnect and solve the problem.

Re: Coupling issues

Sorry, I forgot to report back!

I removed the coupling link from the brake van and all is well.

Many thanks!

Now I’m off to look for a magnet!

Re: Access to the loco shed

WTD is right. I am modelling a small West Country branch line being a GWR man. Nevertheless I run a cracking little J15 on it just because I can and I like it!

I'm happy in my own little world!
