Re: Houston - we have a problem!!!!!!!!!

If the various lights are LEDs this can happen if they don't have resistors fitted. One set of lights (usually red LEDs) rob all the power.

Re: Breakdown trains and their rolling stock

Looks good to me but I think we all know that what we see on a screen can look different in reality.

Re: Distance between tracks

63mm centre to centre is the distance that set track uses. Peco streamline is 50mm. This is still wider than scale. On the sharp bends that most layouts use, you will probably need to widen the 50mm spacing to allow for overhangs and underhangs that occur with longer stock.

Re: Any DCC decoders to avoid?

Zimo, Lenz, Esu, are all good. Zimo probably the best of the bunch, even their budget decoder is excellent and reasonably priced.
