  1. Thanks for the replies guys. I'll save my money! Rick
  2. Apologies if there's already been a list of allocations on this thread. Were there any of these cranes in the Scottish Highlands? I've seen a picture of the Inverness crane, but I think that was a Cowans 75 tonner. Basically, I'm looking for an excuse to buy one! Cheers, Rick
  3. Narrow gauge cattle vans weren't unloaded there; the dual gauge track was so the narrow gauge could access the sawmill farther down next to the standard gauge lines. The goods and cattle were unloaded from the narrow gauge in a different part of the yard. I've never seen a picture of a narrow gauge vehicle on the dual gauge track, but I'd be very interested if anybody has seen one! Rick
  4. Great video, thanks for taking the time to do it. Rick
  5. Hello all, I'm after three Mk3 Sleepers in Intercity livery, early or Swallow. Hornby models would be my preference, but Lima ones would be fine. These carriages seem to be virtually impossible to get hold of now! Cheers Rick
  6. My Mk2f RFB and TSOs arrived today. Here's a picture of the RFB between two Hornby (Lima tooling?) Mk3 SLEs. I also took a picture of half my sleeper train laid out in the kitchen; maybe one day I'll build a layout that can accommodate it! Cheers Rick

  8. I've still not been contacted about the 37114 I ordered. Anyone know what the latest news is? Cheers, Rick
  9. Hello, Is it possible to adjust the brightness of LEDs on the function outputs with this decoder? Cheers, Rick
  10. I've spent some time today modifying the headcode blinds on one end of my TC, I did the same thing on my Thumper. A lot of light bleeds out through the printed headcode, so I've made a cardboard version and coloured it in black with a permanent pen. I scraped the printed headcode off the inside of the glazed panel with a cocktail stick, then slipped the cardboard and a small piece of white paper in between the glazing and the clear plastic fibre-optic part. The result is that the two rectangular blinds are much better defined, and the light doesn't bleed out around them. While I had it apart I sealed the LED all round with black tack, to stop the light bleeding back into the cab too. Before. After. Untreated end. Black tacked end. The light is still too bright, but I'm hoping that when my new Bachmann 36-557 decoder arrives I'll be able to dim the function outputs down. Can anyone confirm this is possible? If not I will slug it with a resistor. Cheers Rick
  11. Has anybody got a diagram for the 20s? I saw them on the Hull line on Tuesday. Cheers, Rick
  12. Does anyone have any pictures of inside the cabs of these locos? Cheers, Rick
  13. This is my project so far: When the loco is at half revs, I'd like it to be able to drop down to either Initial Power via Spool Down To Initial, or to Idle via Spool Down, but I can't seem to make it pick one or the other, it always goes to Initial Power and then to Idle if the throttle is moved down to zero. Any advice would be great! Cheers Rick
  14. Hi Simon, Thanks for replying; I fixed the issue I was struggling with, by having a transition looping back into the same state box. The thing I'm currently stuck on is how to make the sound step down to one of two options depending how much you turn the throttle down. I'm sure it must be to do with the conditions of the transitions, I'll take some screen shots and try to explain that better. I've learnt quite a lot just by playing around with the programmer, and by following your guide. I've found some bits of it are quite intuitive and other bits leave me totally lost! Cheers Rick
