Re: Dapol Class 68 Trans Pennine

It not exclusive because on the Dapol site it says register your interest with your preferred Dapol stockist. https://www.dapol.co.uk/You-asked%20for-it-now%20is%20your-chance yes WTD, after a chat with Rails earlier they have had notification from Dapol but have not yet announced it officially yet.

Had an email earlier from Hattons advising that Dapol are doing a OO gauge re-run of the popular Class 68 in Trans Pennine livery. They are asking for pre-orders to see if there is enough interest to do a production run. For anyone interested due to missing out on the first production Brutus, now is...

Re: I am looking for information on the Z21 system?

I use the (small z) z21 as an alternative to PA2 and both are connected, easier to use when moving around the layout. I have 2 wi-fi enabled Multimaus hand controllers and use the DigiTrainsPro and Z21 apps on my android phone and tablet. The (large Z) Z21 is the bigger brother to the z21 and has mo...

Re: Bachmann sale at Rails

Some item's were listed as in stock and available, that is not the case after checking where my order was today I was subsequently told there was a slight delay in receiving the stock from Bachmann. The item purchased was the Bachmann G2A, not sure if any of the other items are also affected by this.

Re: new member - Need DCC chipping advice

with one loco that didn't have any provision for a decoder I hard wired a 8 pin decoder plug socket in the tender first, should any problems arise with the decoder it's then quick to change.

Re: Wiring 2 points to one switch

Sounds like you need to reverse the black and red wires of one of the point motors, the one that goes the wrong way. Thanks Rog that seems to have sorted the issue, Why would I need to reverse on this set of points but not the other? @MG I would have no chance at doing that, I can't even manage a s...

Please can anyone point me to a wiring diagram for wiring 2 peco pl11 surface mount point motors to one switch.
