Re: poorly computer

Which mail program are you using? Does your mail provider offer a web access route? While it won't stop crashing from your regular program it may allow you to send the required files. Which anti-virus program do you use? Has it been run recently? Disable the current one and try a different one. Only...

... May be they do have a problem with Hornby DCC controllers? Also the first one wouldn't accept a four digit code.
Just a thought - which DCC controller are you using? The Select doesn't do 4 digit codes, only the Elite does from the Hornby range.

Re: Pausing SKY Sport Channels

Slightly off topic however, I paid for the ferry crossing to and from Spain. The crossing to Spain has been cancelled, refund via voucher. The crossing from Spain hasn't been refunded yet as it is in April although it will be cancelled. (Due to a quirk in the way Brittany Ferries required me to book...

Re: Replacement wheels for Lima OO coaches?

They are indeed very helpful (I've visited them quite often in the last couple of weeks as they're only 30 miles away). The shop is now closed due to the current virus pandemic so you may find that their phone lines can get busy. They are still processing mail order (via website) and phone orders fo...

Re: First Steam trip of the year for us.

Very odd. I shall give my contactless card to who ever gets a bit of shopping for us. My wife can go to the shops assuming she doesn’t get the bug. Two things wrong with that. All cards are for the of the named person and it is an offence to use someone else's card as a result. But even if they don...

Re: Train video

I'm sure there are much cheaper alternatives! For example this cube camera is good - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Quelima-SQ13-12-11-HD-1080P-WiFi-Car-DVR-Dash-Cam-Sports-DV-Camera-Night-Vision/312185519098?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 and would fit inside an adapted good...

Re: Newton Aycliffe Model Railway Exhibition.

At this stage I think it safe to say that you need to check with the organisers of any event that you intend to travel even a short distance to in order to check that it is still going to happen. Many events are still listed as happening with only a few in March and April cancelled so far, officiall...
