Hi all,

In a spot of bother and need some fast cash to pay some bills so have reluctantly decided to sell a couple of my locos

1. Austrains X-class nbr 54 in Freight Australia livery with DCC ch ...

Thought I would share my latest fix, not sure if it has been mentioned at all before.

My Auscision N-class diesel was stuttering and stalling constantly which was disappointing as my Auscision B-clas ...

I agree with Paul on this.

I really don't like to complain. I purchased 2 Powerline T class back when they were originally released. Had running problems on both. Didn't do anything about it - just ...

Thanks for your reply Aaron. Will try the Zephyr on it's own first when I eventually get the track work completed. I figured I would need as a minimum a 5amp booster as the sound decoders need more am ...

G'Day All,

I currently have a Digitrax DCS50 Zephyr which puts out 2.5amps. It has been running reliably for several years but....

I now am in the process of building a new layout in a room whic ...

No worries and thanks for your offer Roachie. If I had the time and funds I'd be back over there as well, but alas.
Next time I am up your way I might look you up and have a chat if you like

As I said above, he has MS and is not very mobile so getting out is a problem for him.
If any one here can help that would be great but I will try to find some contact details at a nearby club for hi ...

Hi
A friend in Sunbury Victoria has a DCC system running 4 tracks around his layout. I originally wired it up with wires running to each track circuit to get him up and running. I intended to go back ...

Looks like this could be a winner but unfortunately I have no intention of upgrading to Win 8 any time soon. Any chance of having it run on win 7?
YogieBarnes, I have sent you a PM

Just called Eureka today for some details on the R class. Was told that they now expect delivery "around Feb 2013" not in December as stated on Eureka TimesSo I'm guessing that probably could mean mid ...

Benjamin said the website will be operational on Friday 16th December - we still have another week to wait Bill. Hope it goes up as scheduled with  the new locos available.

It will be sad to see the shop close if no-one buys it so I wish you all the very best in your endeavour to sell and your future.

Thank you to Paul and Annette for your help and advice in the past ...

Thanks for the info. I jumped the gun there and have just seen the other thread so all is not lost  Smile

Although I didn't order a VLocity set, I did express my interest. I usually order products only a short time before they are actually released. Sometimes I miss out becuase they have already sold out  ...

Just another suggestion, look at bulk packs of tortoise motors from the US. I got mine for $16.50 each landed here back when the exchange rate was around 0.97. Now that the Aussie dollar is around US$ ...

I would be most interested in a solution to this.

You definitely need an additional control unit that would accept the number input on the keypad and convert it to an analog output which can then be  ...

My cheque also went through today. Expecting a delivery soon  Very Happy

A glass enclosure would certainly be better but you would need to consider that it may need to be toughened glass (for insurance purposes) which is more expensive. You wouldn't want to be sued after l ...

Thanks, I will just get a standard cheapie decoder, clean the motor, brushes, wheels and contacts then give it a whirl

It will either work or it won't

OK so I have tested the current draw on this steamer and it is around 800mA and I've compared this to my Auscision N Class which only draws a measly 210mA

Would a standard decoder be able to handle s ...

Thank you to all for the info. As I have just moved house, I'll see if I can dig up those issues mentioned from all my boxes of model railway stuff!

Also I will see if I can measure the current draw  ...

Thanks for your response Mark.

It is a Triang derivative.

Now that you mention that, would I be right in saying that I just need to do the following:

1. isolate both brushes from the motor

2.  ...

Hi All,

A friend has asked me if it's possible to convert an old Hornby steamer to DCC? The type with the worm drive and one insulated brush.

I know I need to isolate the motor which is held onto ...

Yep, happened to me too. Accidentally got DC onto my DCC system and my Digitrax just died. Needed to have it repaired. If you are not sure then I would keep them totally isolated. May be a bit more wo ...
