Re: Rod Stewart, rail fan

Surprised Sir Bob Geldof hasn't been to the show. Bumped into him in Faversham near the model shop not so long ago. He was complaining about the service in one of the cafe's we'd been in. I wrote and asked Sir B G several years ago if he or any of his contacts could offer my model railway club a pe...

Re: peco pl 35 capacitor discharge unit

I have to agree its not one of the best CDUs

However as for the number, its really unlimited as you normally only operate one or two points at the same time and this is what the CDU feeds to and moves all others remain unused until their switches or levers are moved. :D

Re: electrofrog points

With any Electrofrog point leading into a dead end siding you have the option of.. Leaving the sidings rails unfed and allow the point to switch power towards the siding track. Or add IRJs to the points frog rails (2 IRJs) and then install rail feeds after the frog. Which is the best option? Well DC...

Re: Correct colour for structures and fittings

Hopefully then the Southern Region Chief Civil Engineer's (P Way person?) instructions were followed and mass amounts of Battle Ship grey that dominated in the 1960's was used correctly! There were 50 to 80 gallons (in 1gall. tins) of the stuff in the S & T painters paint store at Faversham Creek Ro...

Re: Will the DCC Concepts AD-S8sx LED's need a resistor??

Hi
Yes sort of.... One resistor in each feed wire per colour per LED.
Not 800K (800,000 Ohm) though, as I doubt any LED would light with that sort of resistance ;) I would look at around 2K up to 10K as a maximum. (2000 to 10,000 OHM)

Re: DCC Concepts AD-S8sx LED's need a resistor??

The manual states under item 6... LED indicators for your Panel: AD-S2sx makes adding LEDs an easy task. LED brightness level can vary so start with a 560 ohm resistor in series with each LED and vary it to suit your own taste! Next further down it states,,,, Power is regulated at a low level but a ...
