Layout Planning / Re: Plym Bridge (my retirement project)

Those Metcalfe kits do look good all together like you have them Di - I really rate Metcalfe.  :thumbsup: . And I also would like to see your WWII modelling.
Indeed they do. Excellent modelling Di. I love the fact you can just see the trains through the town scape, just as it should be. Thank you.

Cheers

You'll not thank me for saying this, Laurence, but any time I start considering DCC I just read the latest couple of pages of your posts and it puts me right. I'm sure there must be a simple(ish) answer to all the running issues you have with losses/changes of addresses as no one else has reported so many problems. :hmmm:

At least Mick considers DCC!  I have never considered it and know little of its workings, so not sensible for me to comment.

But I will!

This layout has the cleanest track in the Kingdom.

Locomotives appear to have difficulties at random, although the tank engines appear to be more affected by gremlins (fewer pick-ups?).

The common factor appears to be the controller.  Can you borrow another, plug it in and see what happens?

The run away train must have been an interesting experience, particularly when the 'panic button' did not work.  It takes a moment to comprehend what is actually happening in circumstances like this.

Best wishes.

Yes I think the change to Cobalt motors will help with a lot of your issues but maybe a few more feed wires would also help. I have every piece of track with a feed even in the fiddle yard, the only exception which is in the fiddle yard is where there is a small piece of track where the points are close together. Then I have soldered the feed across the track joiner which joins the small rail to the point so it feeds both. Has to the cause of your mysterious/ spurious messages to locos, it can only be the decoder itself or the control system. Not sure if you use the same make of decoder in all your locos,I do not need to tell you how to fault find. You could easily had feed wires to your non scenic storage tracks, just add feeds to the outside of the rails and see if that improves running on those sections.

Small screws would allow you to adjust the height more easily and would provide a more stable base.

Yes, I agree

Dapol Steam / Re: Dapol Standards dropping?

The item concerned was not a new model but whether that has any bearing on it I don't know.
I seem to recall BR Lines don't do Dapol repairs. If so, we're veering off the topic :sorrysign:

If it's 13 weeks to get a dodgy brand new loco repaired then that's appalling. I'd rather have a refund and buy something that's gonna work. Appalling,,,,  :veryangry:

I got referred to the urologist who decided to look inside. I thought they would use a fibre optic camera, but I think they used a bit of 1/2Ē gas pipe with a threaded end. Fortunately all OK, but they still donít know why I keep getting infections. Now on a prophylactic dose of antibiotics l

Fortunatly mine was comletely painless, mind you I put that down to me being the only male in the room. :-[
I'm in the same boat as you in not knowing why it keeps happening.

No, PP decided to turn the Goods Shed into a Milking Parlour, so ...... he needed a three legged stool. The back comes off tomorrow.  ;D
