Got one Brian.

Very nice - I think they used to work at Neasden LT shed. I remember seeing them on my way to London Airport (as it was known then) in about 1960.

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I'm DCC Brian - so assume try as originally planned? I might give it a go - seems to much easier than fitting the various kits that are available. The other idea, having watched numerous youtube videos, would be to attach a latching reed switch in the roof - I have placed a strong magnet just inside...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Back onto the subject of coach lighting. I saw a roll of 12v LED's on ebay that you can cut to whatever length you want - there are solder pads every few inches. Could you stick a length of LED's to the inside of a carriage roof, and then just run two cables - one with a resistor - down to pick-ups ...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Funnily enough, one of those modern thingies just appeared on my layout as well. TTS sounds good in it (I managed to find a decoder last month) but it's crying out for some weathering - far too clean :D . I watched a Youtube video about fitting TTS into the Class 66 - which seems extremely straight...

Barry you haven’t attached the tender.
I knew there was something missing. :lol: It's now back in its box, probably never to be seen again. Although I may add sound (TTS) - while its available.
The purchase was in a good cause.

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Barry, I know you use LEDs but be wary of a single power source it may require a large current draw depending on how many lights you have. In the event of a short high amps can be a fire risk. Steve - I have lots (six or seven) of PSU's plugged into a "tower" adaptor. The PSU's are of different vol...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Many thanks for the positive comments. The "taxi" roof sign is currently powered by a battery box that came with the belisha beacons. I need to get a 12v bus cable in so that everything is powered from the same source. I'm still not sure about the buildings - the one's facing have not had the back-p...
