Re: Wiring issue

Hi Brian,

Now you're talking my kind of language, no I hadn't seen these types of 'D' connectors. Much easier, being an oldie like myself, soldering up point motors is sometimes a bit of a challenge.

Re: Wiring issue

Hi Richard,

Now I'm totally out of my depth, and drowning, even the use of a diode bridge is getting to be a bridge too far for me, excuse the pun. I think I'll stick with 25 pin D connectors and mount them on the outside of the table support legs.

Re: Wiring issue

Hi Brian,

Yes, food for thought :idea: . I certainly didn't think about the switching that happens on 50Hz supply, just that all the lights come on and look great. It wouldn't be too much of a hassle to fit the bridge.

Re: Wiring issue

Hi Brian, The power box is basically the BUS line that comes from an old DC controller accessories terminals which gives out 16 volt AC. I understand that it's more than adequate for led's, but they pump along quite nicely. I did change some of the original resistors for certain lights, mainly becau...

Re: Wiring issue

Hi All, Thank you for your feedback, greatly appreciated. My original small layout was purely DC so moving up to the lowest level of DCC is going to be interesting, to say the least. I have two BUS lines running around my layout, one for track power and one for point, lighting etc., as I said, each ...

Wiring issue

Hi All, I'm seeking some wiring ideas for my layout. I have a large shed with basically a 'U' shaped set of tables and about 30 sets of points. Each table can be separated and are linked electrically with RCA Plugs - not a problem. Now I need to bring the extra wires (4 from each) from the point mot...

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.

I've tried several shops both here in Australia and the UK without any success so any help would be appreciated.
