Re: Lostock Exchange Sidings

It's all looking very good. Just a thought, in the last picture you can see the back of the warehouse, could it be given a 3D look by adding drainpipes? It would add a little depth to the backscene - as I say just a thought. Barry

One resistor - more than one LED - risk?

Having resolved the flashing light problem - for which many thanks to all. I thought it best to start a new thread. I would like to put lighting into the buildings in the street surrounding the station. A 12v power supply (it has arrived) is about to replace the 9v supply currently in situ. The buil...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

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

Got there in the end - now for lights in buildings :D The belisha beacons do start in unison, but slowly get out of sequence(?). The beacons and street lamps have the resistors fitted that they came with, the taxi lamps have 1k resistors - the whole lot is running from a 9v supply. The switch is a "...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Hi Chops - yes I was very lucky. In 2008, I was given a demonstration in my local model shop of the new R2782XS BR Duchess Class 8P – City of Sheffield (DCC Sound decoder fitted). I told my boss all about it - guess what my christmas bonus was? https://live.staticflickr.com/4470/37483133732_d5daf694...

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

The BB's just came as BB's - no external pcb, with two wires (blue and red) to be attached, via the resistor (blue wire) to a 12v power supply.
