The article is over a year old, but make of it what you will.

Also, photographed this sign sometime last year ...

Photo from the Railpage archives. By the looks, S302 originally had single markers when painted in WCR livery. Not sure how long this lasted until the duals were fitted.

You dont happen to know how far away the 2nd run GMs may be?

The reason is because the light distributors, which channel the light from the LEDs on the circuit board to the lens of the markers, are a solid piece that have no separation between the red and white ...

I concur, this new radar along with the existing railcams is really a credit to the admin, simply a fantasic service. Made small donation and will continue to be a supporter as such when funds allow t ...

I live roughly in the area, but never knew of it's existence until now. A short dig found this [url=http://alexhistory.pbworks.com/w/page/1724522/Bull's Creek Road]link, which tells that it was opened ...

Fantastic, will have to work a small pine plantation into the layout now.

Hey Luke, I know you are after suggestions so how about a ripe wheat crop? I was musing with the idea of using long straw c ...

Hi guys. Just an update on how I went.

I've successfully modified a couple GT46s, very happy with the result. I completely removed the factory circuit board as there was no easy way I was going to  ...

Well, that's was all that was wrong. The circuit works correctly with a new transistor in the correct way. A little embarrassing but glad to get a result, thanks for your help guys. Will work on wirin ...

Looking at those PDFs, it looks like you're right Ian, the positive should be connected to the emitter and I've got it back-to-front. I'll try a new transistor tomorrow. No idea how any of my battery  ...



The red arrow above is where the 'common negative' lead is soldered. I really only have started learning about circuits in the last coupl ...

Aaron, I managed to get a reliable AC reading from the bridge of around 0.02V.

I'd post a photo showing where the lead is soldered to, but it won't upload from either Google photos or imgur for som ...

Set to AC, I can't get a reliable reading, it jumps all over the place. Set to DC it reads a steady 14.63V.

FYI I didn't draw the diagram, just posted it from another page that I stole the idea fro ...

Are you sure you have the cathode side of the bridge?
Aaron
Pardon my ignorance, but you mean where did I wire the "common negative" (as the diagram calls it) to, on the decoder? I wired ...

Thanks for the pointers guys, unfortunately haven't come up with a solution.

I've tried several combinations of resistors between the 56k and 1k values between in place of the base and pull-up resi ...

Can you measure the voltage at the base of the transistor? Both ON and OFF states. Looks like the OFF state voltage doesn't turn the transistor completely off.

Off is 0.58v

[quote=comtrain]I am probably less informed than you claim to be Very Happy

However I do notice the circuit gives a common negative on the Hornby light board In fact DCC standards actually have a positive co ...

Hey all

While on a mission to work out how I can switch the marker lights separately from the headlights on my Auscision GT46s, using DCC rather than the manual switches (which are on the common p ...

Went to the exhibition yesterday. Traveled over from SA the day before and joined the queue before it opened. Enjoyed my first visit to Sandown, plenty to see and importantly while it was pretty crowd ...

*Swaps arranged pending release*

With the various steel wagons coming out soon, I'm looking at putting together a PacNat steel train.

However, I'd like some variety in the mix without havi ...

Austrains CL/CLP/CLF front pilots

CLF/CLP with ditch light mouldings would be good, but beggars can't be choosers! If there a slim chance that someone has a spare pilot from a wreck or something th ...

Thanks Luke.

They look familiar, not sure if I've seen any on our place though. I'll ask someone who may be able to tell me what it is. It sure does look the goods for making eucalypts though. Migh ...

Great website mate.

I see you marked the location of the shrub up near Williamstown, by any chance did you find out what species it is? Would be good to see if I can find one a bit closer to home,  ...
