Re: Inflation!!!!!!!!

I have loads of stock I'll never use - the problem is I can't convince myself to sell any of it!

Another email from Rails - the new DIGITAL SOUND WESTERN PULLMAN 6 Car Unit and the Dynamis Ultima are now available to pre-order individually!

The six car unit is available for just £675.00.

Re: Inflation!!!!!!!!

I also have some pre-orders in the pipeline - hopefully 2020 will be a cheap year? A couple of things on the "not essential wishlist" - a set of Bachmann Birdcage Coaches for example - they'll have to wait.

Inflation!!!!!!!!

I've just received an email from Rails of Sheffield about new arrivals. One of these being the Bachmann Class 411 4-CEP EMU (weathered) and it cost £382.46. I bought a new Class 411 4-CEP EMU from Kernows in 2013 and it cost £64.95 - obviously weathering is a very high cost extra.

Re: Change of car? Maybe.

On my Volvo XC70, as with most Volvo's the headlights are on all the time once the car is started. You can of course turn them off, but if you do, the side lights remain on - even after you have turned the engine off, locked the car and gone home - end result a flat battery.

Re: DCC wiring/points etc etc

Hi Rob - you obviously need to do a bit of reading, but you could answer a couple of questions, for example, how big is this layout - how big is big? You say you need at least one power booster - sometimes these are not necessary - how much of the layout will be outdoors? BB
