Re: electrofrog points

With any Electrofrog point leading into a dead end siding you have the option of.. Leaving the sidings rails unfed and allow the point to switch power towards the siding track. Or add IRJs to the points frog rails (2 IRJs) and then install rail feeds after the frog. Which is the best option? Well DC...

Re: Correct colour for structures and fittings

Hopefully then the Southern Region Chief Civil Engineer's (P Way person?) instructions were followed and mass amounts of Battle Ship grey that dominated in the 1960's was used correctly! There were 50 to 80 gallons (in 1gall. tins) of the stuff in the S & T painters paint store at Faversham Creek Ro...

Re: Will the DCC Concepts AD-S8sx LED's need a resistor??

Hi
Yes sort of.... One resistor in each feed wire per colour per LED.
Not 800K (800,000 Ohm) though, as I doubt any LED would light with that sort of resistance ;) I would look at around 2K up to 10K as a maximum. (2000 to 10,000 OHM)

Re: DCC Concepts AD-S8sx LED's need a resistor??

The manual states under item 6... LED indicators for your Panel: AD-S2sx makes adding LEDs an easy task. LED brightness level can vary so start with a 560 ohm resistor in series with each LED and vary it to suit your own taste! Next further down it states,,,, Power is regulated at a low level but a ...

Re: Painting and Weathering Service

The owner has the same hopes. :D Glad you are still happy with yours Brian. Did you ever fix the lights? I noticed Hornby had a 71 in the visitor centre for only £80 a week ago! Yes. I had to get a new PCB from Hornby. Apparently there is/was a known fault with the original batch of Class 71 loco's...

Re: Bi LED's with straight legs

Won't they fit into the Kingbright RTC-31 panel LED clip? https://www.rapidonline.com/kingbright-rtc-31-3mm-led-panel-clip-55-0160 Depending on the panels thickness you could just push the 3mm LED into a pre drilled hole from the rear. Bezels aren't always necessary. I don't think I've seen straight...

Re: At last

Just been in phone contact with the publishers Silver Link. The business has been sold to Mortons Media hence the delay. However, I'm assured that nothing will change other than ownership of the publishing company. The Silver Link Nostalgia range of books will continue to be published. I should rece...
