That's incredibly sad, thanks for letting us know.

AK cars for NPS-55, perhaps??  Who knows but those FAMs look amazing.

Edit: NPS-13 then Very Happy

Got distracted by this earlier when the replay popped up in a feed.  That would've been terrifying.  Anyhow, FYI they've got another cam in the same spot focusing purely on the recovery and without ch ...

[quote=Garahbara]I also bashed-up my Lima locos with flushglaze windows, replacement pilots, kadee couplers, and LEDs and fbire optics for the headlight and drilled-out marker lights. A Bacis TCS dec ...

Plastic and metal wheels on rollingstock hit the spikes on code 75. Surprisingly though, the two locos I mentioned previously don't. I thought they would and I think my 422 used to ages ago but it's g ...

Wow, I was going to say if it's Lima, stick to code 100, actually I'll still say that, but I tried a LIMA 422 (bought early 2000s from Tom's) on a piece of Peco code 83 and the flanges of the loco rod ...

Thanks fellas much appreciated.  It's one of those questions I've been meaning to ask for ages but I didn't know what the part was called let alone what to search for.

Really interesting NSWRcars. Months ago when weight was brought up I was going to try and dazzle everybody with a 200g Wombat.  I gave up quickly and didn't take into account balance back then but I'l ...

I've been under the impression they were metal boilers, albeit thin. I'm sure that's the case, I will check again next chance I get.

Brass dome and funnels have been available from

Just to clarify, does the the NWSL 1215 have the same diameter shaft as the OEM? Did you use the OEM worm?
NSWRcars
Yes, absolutely.  Shaft is 1.0mm, the stock flywheel and worm will be  ...

Mark I was going to offer my NCE up for grabs too, until I tried it on the diesel so I'll keep it now, but wont try more.

More on motor mods and replacements

In this post I successfully  ...

Aaron, yeah the ESU, TCS and NCE decoders were bought just after your last post and I'd only just got hold of them a few days before posting the update. I planned at buying a Lenz Silver mainly due to ...

Whilst becoming consumed with trying to find an answer to better motor performance during startup and slow speed, I’ve had to ask myself if I’m taking this a bit too far. Then I view a bit of foot ...

Just a tip for searching Railpage that someone told me ages ago, type your search query followed by site:Railpage.com.au into google. Eg "overland site:Railpage.com.au" will get lots of results regard ...

Hi Aaron, thanks for the input and thanks Allan. I thought about starting a new thread given the DCC based issues but as it's all tied into experiments with these locos that I hadn't finished I though ...

An update with a hallelujah moment finally.  I swapped decoders between the Ixion 32 and Traino 42.  The 42 now behaved faultlessly whilst the 32 now shutdown early whilst throttling down. It's not th ...

The thought occurred to me after the last post that maybe it's not something to do with the Wombats but more to do with the Ixion. Most of my diesels are 21 pin socketed so I dug through some older Tr ...

Whilst trying to figure this out I thought perhaps something on the loco's circuit board is messing with the signal to decelerate slowly so I went about hardwiring the decoder to the 8 pin tender/loco ...

I've got a few Mashima motors stashed now for the future and an Ixion 32 but wanted to find gear replacements for the 1.5mm shafts before I did any other mods. Then summer happened, fire and 'rona, an ...

NSWRcars, unfortunately it appears you have a 1220 motor, not a 1020.  When I bought from Casula I got a 1015, 1024, and was given a 1220 and 2010 open frame motor instead of the 1020 and NWSL 1215D-9 ...

Those weights are interesting, I never thought to measure them.  Weight of the OEM motor is 6g, flywheel is 4g. I can't measure mg but together they measure 10g. I like your idea of packing out the re ...

I'm remotoring my C30Ts. If you're Wombats are chipped I'm guessing you'll have no desire or need to change out the motor and will question what's the point. Indeed the OEM motor has no trouble emulat ...

Regarding bending the pins, it's only very slight. Check this pic below.  The pins are fairly stubby and only stick out 2mm. I put the flat blade screw driver in between them and just bend them a litt ...

[quote=The railway dog]Changing the subject a bit, the electrical connector on the 6 wheel Wombat type tender fitted to my Ixion 32 is now so loose you can see the inner piece slopping around as (if) ...

Whilst doing the above experiment I took photos but was a bit despondent over the results so didn't post any pics. However, whilst it's all apart I'd thought I'd go ahead and track every wire and post ...
