So Italian post ladies don't wear uniforms.

I'm disappointed  :'(

Just received my first 'pre-loved' loco, an eBay bargain:


A Bachmann/Farish jinty, in LMS black. With DCC chip already fitted, for 53 including postage!!! I think that's a really good price considering the chip would be 18-20 on it's own...

Only problem is I don't have a DCC controller yet!

Lovely! You might contact Bachmann and ask about getting a blanking chip from them for it. :)

I'm going to get a DCC controller soon, I'm just not 100% which one yet...

In the meantime if I do feel the need to test it on DC, I could just borrow a blanking chip from another loco. But I think I can wait! :-\

The Jinty has a 90 pin blanking chip just like the DCC chip it requires because of limited space inside the model, so if you do get itchy to run it DC, you won't be able to do it with the body on. :/ I would recommend taking it to your local shop or club and asking them to test it on a DCC layout to make sure the engine is fully functional and problem free if it is going to be a little while before you get a DCC system, as if you need to return it/contest the sale then you only have a certain window to do it in (90 days?). I would send you my Jinty's blanking chip to use for a while but I'm stateside so you'd probably get hit with an import tariff (not totally sure how that works), so it might be better to ask on here or the Facebook page if someone else has one you can borrow/have. :)

Don't worry
You can easy run it on DC circuit....on the contrary , DC on DCC, there must be problems.

Cheers.

I hear that might depend on the DCC chip installed.  :confused2:

Seems fairly likely that the Bachmann 90 chip is installed since it is the only one that fits to my knowledge. They aren't exactly expensive to replace if you fry it, but since having it come with the chip was part of what made it a good deal, I personally wouldn't risk it.

Thanks, but I already have a plan- I'll take it with me to Doncaster next weekend - I know there's at least one DCC N gauge layout going to be there... ;)

Hi,
At moment the only one decoder 90 degree angle I know (and probably chipped on the Jinty) is the Bachmann 36-556ra....DC compatible

Cheers

Lovely! I'm not a modern image fan in general but I find myself liking the EWS liveries locos more and more. The weathering looks very good too :) I hope you enjoy it!!!!

Good quality choice for your first loco there, and let's be honest there are enough 66s around in the real world to let you locate you layout pretty much anywhere.

LNER A3 and A4....check
Deltic.....check
HST set......surely?!

My "new" WD


Bought last week from Ian Arkley via eBay.  Arrived Tuesday morning, and by the end of the day it had been renumbered from 90566 to a Darlington favourite 90011.  I had also by this stage chipped it and changed the tender coal to a part-load of the real stuff, taken in the seventies from the dust in the bottom of my coal house in Hartlepool and stored in a tin or use ever since. I used to have some muscles then, carting the coke in buckets up four flights of stairs to put in in the coal bunker on the balcony of the flat was responsible for that!

By the end of Thursday (yesterday) it looked like this.  A real Darlington long-term esident- it now pairs up with Darlington's 90044 to outnumber West Hartlepool long-timer 90366.  There are three coats of chalk on the loco and tender, with each of the first two sealed with matt varnish before the next coat was applied, and the loco given a spell on the wheel cleaner to keep the grot off the wheel treads.


It will be in action at Doncaster Racecourse this weekend, at Sileby next weekend, Cotgrave in April and the GCR in June.

All the very best
Les
