On a completely unrelated topic, where do I look for help on whether I need a DCC booster? My CL 52 steadfastly refuses to run more than an inch without the whole system shutting down. All I can think of at this point is that it's trying to draw more than 3amps, but I don't want to go the $200 upgrade route with my PowerCab unless I'm throwing money in the right direction.
:hmmm:  Seems a lot of current for it to draw.  Is there a problem with it?  0.5 amps is more the norm.  Good work with the churchyard BTW. :thumbsup:
With kind regards
Laurence

Can't help you with the DCC stuff I'm afraid, Steve, but the church yard looks great. Are the headstones card, or styrene?  :beers:

Thanks! The headstones are a mix of heavy watercolor paper and some left-over card from a Metcalfe platform kit, i wanted a variety of weights.

Thanks! I don't think there's anything wrong with the model. John Gymer tested it out for me and couldn't find anything amiss.

Progress has slowed a little (OK, a lot!) recently, but the Southern Region has agreed to extend third-rail electrification to the Moorkpark branch. A fresh-out-of-the-depot 4-CEP is the first EMU visitor to the station. The Class 37 stands by in case of any unanticipated gapping issues.

The stationmaster needs to have a word with the station staff about keeping the platform swept of bits of ballast and leaves, mind you.
