    St Petrock goes AC

    Hi Mike, you have inspired me to purchase a Raspberry Pi. I also got the Sams book. I think its going to take some digesting. Managed to get it to boot up though so some progress! Richard.

    Excellent. Is there a real bell or are the sounds done "electronically"?
  6. Have you seen the Mike Wild article in Novembers Hornby Magazine? He used a Lenz Gold Maxi for motors fan and lights and then piggy-backed a cheap sound decoder on top. It was for a Heljan class 40.
  7. I have fitted a Zimo MX645R to one of my class 20's. I have used both motors and it works fine. The current draw seems to flicker about from 0.6A to 1.0 Amp. It only potters about in a shunting yard but it has never exceeded the 1.2 amp rating of the decoder.
  8. I think the likes of Rapid Electronics etc, use the term "Enclosure".
  9. I have just seen a 4-car class 331 unit on a Skipton-Leeds service and noticed a white light on the roof near the pantograph. Does anyone know what the light is for?
  10. There is a colour shot of a DMU in the Torrington bay platform at Halwill Jnc in "West country branch lines" by Peter Gray. Dated Autumn 1964.
  11. A search on Flickr for "Halwill", shows W55000 at Hole 13/02/65 and W55000 at Hatherleigh 06/02/65. Both shots by Roger Joanes.
  12. Looking back at my notes, D3568 was the Skipton pilot and it went to Holbeck for fuel. It made the trip on 01/03/74 and then again on 10/04/74 . So about six weeks. I can't imagine that it worked more than a couple of hours a day at Skipton.
  13. Got one on my workbench. Length is 155mm. Height from platform to truss girders is 45mm.
  14. So, a passenger train travelling over a set of trailing points in the facing direction. An exception to the rules? Also happened on a daily basis at Halwill Junction. Number 16 points if I remember correctly.
  15. Just going back to the Settle-Carlisle. There used to be a Hellifield to Hawes train. So how did that get across to the branch at Garsdale?
