Now I can make a detailed interior...

Re: Gaugemaster n gauge rail joiner

I assume the code will be GM18? Huh if Gaugemaster cannot obtain further supplies then they should change the website to 'no longer available' and not 'out of stock but available to order' This outfit allowed me to add 20 to my basket and proceed to checkout!

21 pin sound decoder Class 101 DMU

This arrived earlier and I wanted to install today and the chap isn't available today to ask the question. I need to know what the extra orange, black & white wires will be for. I know white is for lights, black is for the left pick up / power and orange for the motor +, do I have to solder them in?...

Re: Bachmann Class 37 Sound fitted issue
