My thoughts exactly. The layout looks very good, Mike. I'm very glad that you've got it to run on DC and hope all your models well do so.

I actually ran it quite sedately. It was willing to go round like a rocket but with no perspex surround up at the moment and lots of points close to the edge I wasnt willing to risk it literally taking to the air!

The Midland Pullman ran nicely too after a bit of track cleaning.

Why not just get a blanking plate for it, and remove the chip?

Yes, I could, but I would prefer to leave it DCC in case I ever sell it as box says DCC.

If you keep the DCC chip you should be able to replace it, Mike, if you ever need to sell the loco. as DCC.

I could Chris, but every time I take engines apart with my clumsy fingers is a high chance of breaking something  :(

I think you just have to set CV29 Bit 2 = 1 (which adds 4 to the CV value) to enable it for both DC and DCC.

Damn, just won a Gaugemaster single track controller, it means I have to rewire the goods yard now! I think I might leave it a little while and do a bit more Pla testing first....

I picked this kit up at the Stowmarket show on Sunday.
I won't be ready to use it for ages, but thought I'd better grab it when I saw it!
It will make a nice finishing touch outside the school on my layout.



The stripes on the poles are totally wrong, but That's easy to sort out.
I've seen them in 00, but never in N gauge.
The sellers make them themselves.

Leslie Hore-Belisha would have been proud of them, although, of course, in his day they didn't flash (not until the 1950s) and had no zebra stripes.  I can remeber (just) crossings before they became zebra crossings.

I decided to take some time out before starting the rewire of the goods yard.
So I have gone back to the big factory build.
It's the exciting time of starting to put big sections together.
It has made me realise just how difficult this build is going  to be, and I hope that I haven't bitten off more than I can chew.
I have assembled one of the elevations:



I am having to fabricate virtually all the upright pieces because I am building it much taller than the original kit.
Sadly, not everything is lining up. To the left of the central drainpipe, you can see that the concrete cross sections line up at the top, but gradually go out of line as you look down.
It's annoying because the bottom three floors section is straight off the download, and not down to me at all!
This section will go at the front of the model, although it will be slightly set back as it will be L shaped and another section will be closer to the viewer.
I'm not sure that I am going to be able to see past this misalighned section though.  :veryangry:
I might try assembling another section, and if it lines up better cut the loading doors out of the one pictured here and fit them to it, replacing these with a window section, and use this first one at the back instead.
Looking at all the vertical columns I have made though (12 of them) I think the problem will be with all of them.
I'm also not at all sure that it will go together well either - I suspect that it is designed to be a square or oblong building, and I think the internal corner may well prove to be a nightmare!  :(

I've had trouble with various wagons and coaches uncoupling randomly.
The worst offender is my TPO, so bad that I gave up running it.
Somebody suggested Tacky Wax as a solution, so I bought a tin at the show on Sunday



Perfect, no uncoupling problems at all now  :D
