Bachmann Class 150

Hi All,

Has anyone tried to fit a driver into the cab of a Class 150, if so, how did you do it. I can only think of drilling a large enough hole it it's base and try to push a person up through that, bit risky though.

Re: Bachmann Spares

Hi All, Bachmann don't have any stock and don't know when new stock will arrive. The same with Hattons. Hen's teeth is spot on. Ian S I'll try and let you know how I get on. For the record I ordered some through a shop here in OZ, waited 8 weeks with nothing and no answers as to when I might see the...

Bachmann Spares

Hi All,

I'm looking for the following Bachmann spare part 36-062.

Double Slip Wiring

Hi All, Just curious, I'm wiring up a series of SEEP point motors and I have one that's a 3 way point, so two motors are used, that's fine. I then saw a Double Slip for sale on Ebay and when I looked at the Peco layout diagram and wondered how would you fir point motors to that. Is there a special d...

Re: Running two joined trains

Thanks guys, I'll look into that.

I know that trying to run two trains together on DC causes problems where one unit will inevitably run faster than the other, especially if they are different classes or makes.

Running two joined trains

Hi All,

I'm new to DCC so please bare with me on this. How can you operate say two Class 150 sets that are attached to each other to form one unit. I seem to recall seeing this on a youtube video somewhere that showed this.

I did read that every piece of track really needs t...

Re: DCC wire sizes

Hi Ron, No, I haven't seen any of this. This looks like these two links will be able to answer more of my questions. Long nights ahead reading all of this. I get so frustrated when what appears to be simple questions get really complicated and confusing answers that make one wonder if it's all worth...

DCC wire sizes

Hi All, I'm looking to start wiring my layout for DCC and am confused a bit by various articles concerning the size of wires to use. One post I read says to use 24G on track droppers with 32G on the BUS lines another says 16G and 24G respectively. Also solid wire verses stranded wire. Firstly I woul...
