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?

Re: Single Track Module Set

Hi
I am with Koos on this one, nothing beats a long train on a very long scenic only module! There must be a proper word for this.

Re: Model Railroading in the UK, a perception

Hi Koos

A good answer. However we have been operating prototypically over here for years which people over there seem aware of, Freezer wrote an excellent little book in 93 and we certainly ran a large Japanese N Gauge layout with signals and timetable well over 10 years ago.

TT&TO at Weston

Hi

I wonder if any one is interested in trying our hands at TT&TO on Saturday evening? I know this would mean missing the traditional meal.
