  1. http://tottenham-summerhillroad.com/early_railways_of_tottenham.htm (scroll down to B17 Tottenham Hotspur) Found this image, but because of black/white photo difficult to say what colour the lamps are. They look like the colour of the buffer beam. But eventually I`m open to conviction and can change the colour. Rgds Bernd

  3. Hi Bob, it`s from Laurie Griffin and a bit worked at by me. Bernd Hi David, that`s what I did. Different from Heljan.
  4. Some more detailing. New correct smokedoor handles and LNER lamps. ( Colour red on locos aand brake vans until early thirties) Rgds Bernd

  6. Another attempt of a short video after deleting my post by silly mistake. Rgds Bernd Second take with this time correct whistles, I hope.
  7. Short video filmed by mobile (QP) B
  8. Sorry, maybe I am mistaken, but shouldn`t it be 6 chuffs per rev ? Rgds bernd

  10. Don`t know how people couple a coach to the tender as the corridor connection is in the way. So I detached the rubber bulge (hardly glued) from the tender back , drilled two 8mm holes into the outer edges, fitted brass pins and as there are 3 more plastic pins at the top, it can be removed and refitted now. Rgds Bernd
  11. Shortly before Christmas 3 further photos of Papyrus. Real coal for the tender (on plasticard) and mudguards prototypically broadened a little bit with plasticard. Rgds and blessed Christmas Bernd
  12. Did a little detailing , as fitting the fall plate seemed a bit difficult, I drilled 0,5mm holes in bottom sides of cab and soldered 0,5mm wire to both plate sides. Then I made new small dust guards from brass and long guard irons in front of them. Rgds Bernd
  13. Thank you very much Brian!!! I´ll try your chosen values and see what happens. My decoder is MX 696KS and I set the values : 2 =5 ,3=40 ,9=98 ,56=77 . Works quite well, too . Only running backwards at speed step 40 (128) is a bit jerky. Rgds Bernd PS Is your programmer MXULFA ?
  14. Hi Brian , I`d like to know, as I use a Zimo decoder too, concerning "running and setting up DCC", which values you chose for CVs 2, 3, 9 , and 56 ! Rgds Bernd
  15. I`ve tried to model the draincocks of early A3 versions and as I really don`t know why Heljan didn`t construct a simpler solution to connect loco with tender but to use srews , I soldered a pin to a small brass plate and srewed it on the loco and so , though it`s a bit fiddly, I needn`t use the srews anymore.
