Welcome and Introduction / Re: Cherry popping with an 08 on DCC
« Last post by Paul-H on Today at 09:06:38 am »
The small Zimo does go in the 08, I put one in mine, quite a bit of work is needed to make room though

All the cab bulkhead needs to be dremeled out, the cab floor needs to be reduced and the top of the gearbox needs reducing, this exposes the gears so I covered mine with thin plasicard to a keep lubricant in and b remove any chance of the worm drive damaging the decoder.

Once all the work is done there is enough room to fit the decoder with its supplied heat shrink intact and the minnow just slips under it and sits on the cab floor, on mine I removed some of the cab glazing just to let the sound out, although to be honest I am not sure that step was necessary. All done as per the last set of photos on the Youchoos guide.

Pendolino / Re: Pendolino - a new approach

Hello all,

I have just come back from a break.

Barry - I am glad your model has been sorted.   Thanks for updating the thread too.

Jonny - I hope you are getting sorted out.

Gareth Bayer from Rapido, who designed the Pendolino and is designing the forthcoming Class 92) will be on our stand at TINGS on Saturday (or possibly Sunday) if anyone wants to give any direct feedback.

Cheers

Ben A.

Hello all,

We are hoping that Rapido will be telling us they are ready to begin Class 92 production very soon. 

At the moment I am doing final checks on livery variations and details.

Incidentally, Gareth Bayer from Rapido, who designed the Pendolino and is designing the 92, will be on our stand at TINGS this year on Saturday (or perhaps Sunday - arrangements not quite finalised) so if you have any feedback or future suggestions please come and share.

Cheers

Ben A.

Every time I tidy up



Excuse my ignorance, but what is "tidy up"?  ;)

This is a very clever layout. Although many buildings are standard Metcalfe, the grey stone makes them sooooooo very suited to a Cornish scene. You have done a splendid job Martin. You have captured the quintessential atmosphere of an inland Cornish village so very well.

Do you have any particular association with Cornwall? (Just kidding).

I actually see the spirit of places like St. Day in this model.
St Day eh? Now thereís a thought for a future project.
At least I could stroll up there for some research.
On second thoughts though......maybe itís a no.

Isn't that room what train rooms are supposed to look like?  ???

My train set room certainly thinks so.  Every time I tidy up a benign manifestation of chaos theory re-asserts itself.
