Re: 21 pin sound decoder Class 101 DMU

I have a feeling those extra wires are for a stay alive capacitor. I believe some versions of Loksounds (i think it's Loksounds) need a special stay alive with two capacitors. Don't connect the wires to anything until you have the right wiring instructions.

Re: Beginner layout.

A FAR BETTER controller to start with is the NCE Powercab. I can't see the point of buying a DCC set if you don't want the locos that are in the sets. The Powercab is a bit more expensive than a Select but well worth spending the extra money on and can be easily upgraded in the future if needed. PS....

Re: talking water tower

What's wrong with it?

Re: Anyone ordered items from AliExpress

If you are using the brown (Latte) forum colour option then links are not underlined, just a slightly lighter colour. If you choose the prosilver colour option, links are underlined and there is a much more obvious colour difference.

Re: Peco Point Motor Extensions

I've never used them but I would think Araldite would be the best.
