Re: Started building new lay out

Hi John
Sounds like a nice project with the kitchen base units being the baseboard support. Don't forget before fitting any top to cut some slots in the cupboard top edges to allow any wiring to pass from cupboard to cupboard, once the baseboard top is fixed down. :D

Excellent result Steve. :D

Re: Finding a Lost Draft

Correct, but the quote place markers are not 100% as the last ] after the introduction text is missing, hence the incorrect displayed text.

Re: Gaugemaster DCC80 Autofrog

I suspect we are both right. :D An unmodified point (apart from the three way) wouldn’t need a switch at all therefore saving Andy a fiver. Agreed. However, adding a frog polarity switch or Auto frog etc to any Electrofrog point can only improve power (and data for DCC) through the point. As sole r...

Re: Gaugemaster DCC80 Autofrog

I'm hanging on. Not sure onto what though? :D #Steve, you may be absolutely correct... Though I think for a different reason... All Electrofrog points work straight from the box, except the Electrofrog 3 way point which needs to have frog switching used. They just need Insulated Rail Joiners added t...

Re: Gaugemaster DCC80 Autofrog

It shouldn't matter at all. You just need to ensure the two DCC feed wires are the correct way around on the DCC 80 to match the point blades then the frog will be switched correctly. If you do get a short circuit on the DCC system reverse the two feed wires and retry. :D

Re: Thomas themed layout for my 2yr old

Hi As shown in the last drawing you will never be able to run a train into or out of the 'Coach and Wagon' fan of sidings. It will need a rail feed installed where I've shown it in Blue Also the outer rail feed is really best positioned to the right of the cross-over point rather than rely on power ...
