Re: DCC Accessory Compatability

Hi Wish we had a white board, make it easier to follow. But having read all this assuming we have JMRI have we a problem (I thought we had, but am not so sure now). If Lenz modules appear at a meet where the command station is Digitrax or NCE they need to provide a "R,S" bus and connect that to the ...

Re: DCC Accessory Compatability

I've not looked at other hardware yet and Thamesiders are working with DCC accessories and RS feedback on the main EBL layout. Hi Geoff That's really the issue that worries me. We also use Lenz, but I am reluctant to install a system for signalling which will not work with other commend stations. I...

Re: DCC Accessory Compatability

Hi Mike Thanks I had forgotten Digitrax is either track bus or digitrax throttle bus, and can be set up for both simultaneously. However CML Digitrax accessories appear to be either set up as track bus or (digitrax) throttle bus, not both. Will try and remember to bring the instructions to our next ...

DCC Accessory Compatability

Hi Interested in adding signals to modules so need to know what is compatible with what? This is what I think works or does not work: Lenz will control NCE but not Digitrax accessories. Digitrax will control Lenz and NCE accessories. NCE will control Lenz but not Digitrax accessories. All three feed...

On30 Narrow Gauge

Ken O'Shea has given me his old Narrow Gauge Layout (Some may recall he and I took it to a couple of shows). Here we are re-gauging it (to On30) and converting to DCC.

JMRI CTC Panel

Hi

We are working on a JMRI CTC panel for RS Tower. Coding in Python as it is simpler (I think) than Logix and stuff.

Obviously a work in progress!

Hi Koos

I take it the electrical box thingy does not count!

Any way hope to have it at the next meet (small hope).

Are small modules allowed

Hi Koos

I am thinking of building a 6" module with signals for APB. Would that count? If so could I start now as I have the bits?

Re: JMRI ops

Any starting tips would be gratefully received. Hi Martyn has beaten me to it, even as I write! Not sure if you are talking modules or permanent layout. The big problem with regular meets is club members wishing to bring a different set of cars to each meet. Typing stuff in is just a bore, whereas ...

Re: Deadwood City Railroad - HO

Hi
Why do you want a staging yard? One can work quite well assuming the train had just arrived at the first station. Or a removable staging cassette off one end?
