  1. A long time ago we had a modelling table next to the layout. For some reason that nobody can remember there was a washing up tub on the table filled with water. The table top itself was green. We tried to pass it off as a Channel Tunnel layout.
  2. I've had a DR5000 for a few years now. It has been used to operate large modular layouts as well as just my home layouts. The only time I get any issues is when I try to interrogate anything connected to Loconet via the Digikeijs configuration app. Then it needs a reboot. It has been reported but no solid fix or workaround yet. It does seem that certain Loconet activities will cause issues. (adding laptop, adding or removing a booster, etc) None of these would normally happen during regular operation. At one modular meet we had trains running with Lenz, Digitrax duplex wireless, Digitrax tethered, WiThrottle, Z21 app, and Multimaus all at the same time. My normal operation is DR5000 as the master, 4 Digikeijs DR5033 boosters, 2 ancient Digitrax command station/boosters running in booster mode. Loconet T with DT400 throttles + DS64 & DAC20 stationary decoders. Loconet B to the boosters. USB to laptop running JMRI & WiServer which in turn allows me to run trains using iPad and iPhone throttles. I also use the DR5000's built in wifi to run Roco MultiMaus throttles. For the price I don't think you can really beat it.
  3. Sorry but I'm at the opposite side of London. However, DCC is DCC. The only real difference with Digitrax is Loconet. (used many other places like Digikeijs) If Ted can't solve your issues I'd suggest the problem is possibly not purely Digitrax. I'm running a hybrid these days but still have my 26 year old Digitrax components in the mix. I've also been in charge of the DCC set up in Freemo meets. These are modular get togethers where dozens of modules get connected with a common DCC system. Most of these are with Digitrax. Have you considered trying a Zoom with Ted or one of your other 'helpers on the phone'? If you want, you could just post me a DM with what you have, and what your issues are. It is possible I've come across the problem before.
  4. I'll have a dig. Used to have a pair of those somewhere. For similar, Model Junction (still doing mail order) have theses Buda stops in stock. https://www.modeljunction.info/pwrelated-accessories/10448-buda-wheel-stops-1-pair.html
  5. I thought it was all rust instead of paint. See also just about every American built Ford between 1970-1980.
  6. Good luck with the new venue. Depending on the weather, its a walk for me.
  7. With regards to throttle selection, we’ve been using Digikeijs for several Freemo meets now. The last one I did the power for had Digikeijs + Lenz throttle + Roco maus, Digitrax duplex wireless and tethered, WiThrottle through JMRI, and Z21 app all at the same time. It really is a little Swiss Army knife of systems.
  8. Info and link passed on to the Freemo FB group, most of which are NMRA BR Region members as well.
  9. Just what I needed. Temptation, and a potentially large rabbit hole to fall down. Great stuff. Keep 'em coming.
  10. As Nigel stated, your PSU has to be at least 3a or it will shut down before your DCS, not a good thing. Ebay is showing a 15v 3a supply which should be more than adequate.

  12. Harking back to @Railpassion's question around curves & coaches. I've got several of the Walthers 85' Superliners and 2 sets of the Rapido Budd coaches. Neither will go around anything less than 30" curves without some serious hacking about, especially if being pushed.
  13. Ahh the joys of poorly encoded string post events from client to server. Likely using SOAP to call the search engine but not properly encoding the payload. <sigh> I see this all the time.
  14. Not necessarily. Jason is a big collector of Countdown magazine. You can include most Gerry Anderson stuff in his interests. Sadly, most of that is licensed by Mattel, Sixteen12, and Corgi (aka Hornby)
