  1. Riddles

    EBay madness

    Definitely pre-date those conflicts but not WW2. The No. 50 Series was made between 1957 and 1962-4 If you own those items for which the boxes were made, and they are in good condition, on purely monetary terms, they could be a good investment, even with the large post and packing charge.
  2. Bachmann 37-425A looks very much like that wagon, having identical pressed steel doors. It is numbered B8707. I can see no reason why they should use an incorrect number intentionally.
  3. Of course Hornby provided exactly what the OP asks for about 18 years ago. Google Hornby R9060
  4. Possibly Hattons have created the page so that they have all the information they will need when second-hand/pre-owned models are inevitably offered to them sometime in the future. The page does invite readers to register their interest on their wishlists so they "will email you if a pre-owned one becomes available". Just a thought.
  5. I'm using Windows 10 and the latest update of Firefox and I get "Please replace this index.html file with your own site :)" Using Safari on an iPad gives exactly the same, with a notice that the site is not secure.
  6. Don't forget that any "legacy" DCC system you have and like, can still be used with Z21 through the sniffer socket. No need to worry about CAN and X-BUS connections. The big clunky lever of the ZTC 511/611 works fine that way. For the finest control though, I find an iPhone is best. Tilting my thumb can cause a minuscule change of speed and the haptic feed back when you reach 'stop' or 'max' is a bonus.
  7. On a point of order, decimalisation day was 15th February 1971
  8. Of course if your 511 has been upgraded to a 611, it's slightly different but still just as circuitous. It's now PRESET -> LOCO -> 8 -> ENTER R
  9. Or even packets of 8 from Accurascale for £2.95, with three different types available.
  10. The Hornby reference number of 46229, Duchess of Hamilton, is R3594. I'd been hoping for this variant for decades, and it was worth waiting for.
  11. It's not very surprising when the large majority of shares is held by one controlling party, i.e. Phoenix. There are not many shares available to be traded so who is likely to be panic buying or selling?
  12. "Forwards" is now fan end first after changing CV29. I've also added 4 digit addressing and turned off analogue running as a matter of course.
  13. My "factory fitted" 10201 with Loksound 4.0 decoder arrived today and "Forwards" was NOT fan end first. CV29 had been set at 14 so "Normal" was not conventional.
  14. I don't know whether it was the result of a recent app. update, (I am on version 2.3.17), but I am having trouble Exporting and Importing "Layouts" between iPhones when using the WLAN method. When I reach the WLAN screen on the Exporting device, the name of the Importing device is out of view. If I swipe the screen down the name appears but does not stay down for me to select it. As soon as I let go, after swiping down, it pops back up again out of sight. I am therefor resorting to emailing the file to myself which is a bit long-winded. Is any else experiencing this and found a way to fix it? A second question for the experts, if I may: can one iPhone be working from Layout A and another be working from Layout B? The Z21 would only be connected to one layout of course, but I am thinking of having one set of locos (sound fitted) on iPhone A and another set (silent) on iPhone B, for administrative convenience. If the answer is yes, as I am hoping, is there any way to copy a loco from Layout B to Layout A, or do all the details have to be re-entered?
  15. To be absolutely fair to Rails I must say that they deserve credit for honouring their early pre-delivery price. When I ordered my SWS back in April they were advertising them at £149.50 which was several pounds less than the other large retailer. After the huge Hornby price-hike I wondered if they might make some excuse to not supply at that price but I need not have worried. It was sent on 2/11/2017 for £153.50 including £4 Parcelforce charge. I don't begrudge them putting up the price for latecomers. If they had still been available at list price, plenty of profiteers would have snapped them up and put them on eBay.
