  1. Hi everyone, Thank you for your replies - I'll have a look at the Zen stay alives. Rob
  2. Hi, I have a ESU loksound version 5, do I have to use an ESU power pack or can use a power pack I already have (Lais stay alive)? Don't want to kill the decoder!! Rob
  3. Hi Ray Not sure about the large version decoders but this is what it says for version 5.0 - you need to tell the decoder the SSP (smart power pack) is there and which output function is being used, which is AUX 9 for a loksound 5 and AUX 7 for a Locksound 5 micro. First ensure CV31=16 and CV32=0 to gain access to the correct index, and for a Loksound 5 set CV339 to 31, and for a Loksound micro set CV323 to 31. Rob
  4. Hi matt I have a V5.0 decoder with a power pack and it says in the instructions that you have to let the decoder know you have a power pack fitted using various cv's, I'm not at home at the moment so I can't check, I'll try and post the details tomorrow. Rob
  5. Hi Rich I have 3 Vitrains 37s - all you have to do is bend down the two small pins that stick out either side of the gear tower - that should lower it by a couple of mm. Regards Rob
  6. Hi Rob I'm pretty new to DCC but I had this problem with TTS chips - I only have a small test plank but I found that if one of my locos still had the factory setting of 3 because I hadn't programed it yet, it would cause the other locos to move, as soon as it was programed all was fine, I use a Powercab BTW. Rob
  7. It will be interesting to see if the height of these matches their MK1s or their existing MK2s!! Regards Rob
  8. Hi, This is my Hornby body/Heljan chassis class 47. The Heljan chassis does take a bit of thinning down so it is possible to fit other bodies. Rob
  9. Hi I have a couple of spares that I don't need, I replaced mine with Heljan items. PM me and I can post them to you if you want. Rob
  10. Hi, thanks for your replies much appreciated! Rob
  11. Hi all Can somebody tell me if the Hornby Railroad Flying Scotsman is tender driven? Thanks. Rob.
  12. Thanks for all your comments - I'm still trying to get used to posting stuff on here as you can probably tell?!! Rob.
  13. Hi everyone, Here are some more photos of stuff on my workbench that still need bits a pieces finishing off!! There are a pair of Lima 20's that I got from Hattons pre owned for £29.00 each ,which I have painted, re wheeled and put a new motor and flywheel in. Also a Vitrains class 37 with a Lima split headcode front grafted on and a lima 125 power car that needs a visit to the works! Lastly a Hornby Bachmann class 25.
  14. Hi, This is my Bachmann peak, it had a centre headcode that I filled (which you can still see through my thin yellow paint!) and fitted some 2mm LEDs with a small plastic tube ring. Rob
