Re: Site appeance

I'm totally convinced the problem is on you PC or connection somewhere. I hop about this forum like a 'mad thing' and never have a problem. I log in with either Google Chrome, which I prefer, or Firefox which I'm current using to type this via, and no effects you're seeing are being found! No other ...

Re: attaching electrofrog points to guagemaster gm500

I have had to dismantle my original layout as it is too big for the spare bedroom in the house. I adapted peco electrofrog points and attached 6 wires to a gm500 so a signal etc can be changed along with the frog polarity. One of the points had not been modified and I had soldered wires to the term...

Re: Simple wiring diagram for leds on control panel.

We do not know what is method of control the OP is planning to use - DC or DCC?? On DC LEDs connected to the frog wont work because.. A) The voltage is at zero when the controller is Off and has too low a voltage when running slowly. B) DC reverses on the frog depending on direction of travel. You n...

Re: Lighting wiring

Brian, Both Railway scenics and Rapidonline show that the circuit breaker is discontinued. Rails of Sheffield has one from Gaugemaster. Since they have 2 prongs, how do you wire them in? Would I put one on the beginning of each circuit? Keep in mind I am a complete novice with electricity. However ...

Re: Lighting wiring

Correction: I have a 12 volt, 2 amp transformer, which will power 100 LED lights. Hi A 2.0Amp power supply will feed around 200 or more LEDs when their series resistor is of a reasonably high Ohmage value. 1000 (1K0) would on 12 volts give most standard LEDs around 10milliamps (0.01Amp) each. You c...
