  1. Continuing from Part 1 (link here) I used the pre-wired DCC Concepts lamps (such as DML-LLBRD - £20 for 6) Going back to the coach body, the hole for the wires was made by holding a pin in a pair of pliers and heating it up in a flame. The hot pin makes a nice neat hole which is just the right size for the thin enamelled wire to pass through. It seems there was no 'standard' placement of the tail lamp - hence the two lamp brackets. Sometimes they were on the platform side, othertimes not and it was placed nearest the Six Foot. I guess they didn'
  2. I thought I'd posted this on RMWeb - but apparently not! Hi everyone. Encouraged by my success at adding a working tail lamp to a Bachmann 20t brake van (see this thread), I engaged on my next project - adding a working tail lamp to a BR Mk1 Brake Corridor Second coach. As with the Bachmann brake van project, I set out to photo-document the whole process from start to finish to again encourage others to attempt this (relatively) simple procedure and highlight any problems I encountered on the way. First, a picture of the coach in question...

    A bit late to the party, but I wonder if this might help... Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (link here) you have SIX YEARS (five years in Scotland) to make a claim against the retailer for the faulty goods (scroll down that link to the section "After 6 Months" and also the section "What if your warranty has run out?", however is is up you YOU to prove that the item was faulty (which may involve getting an expert to review the item and provide a written report - probably at some cost to you). Before 6 months after purchase the assumption is that the item was faulty from the start
  4. STH Have a look at this post. It gives the specifications (and Rapid Electronics part numbers) together with some pix so that you can see how it goes together. Regarding the cap, yes a 16V or better still a 25V in preference to a 12V. Regarding resistors, the bog-standard 1/4 watt metal metal-film resistors will do just fine - such as these from ebay (£0.99 for 20 / free p&p) Depite what Suzie said in reply to my post, the DI202 DIP Bridge Rectifier is fine for DCC use. [DIP means 'Dual In-line Pin' - a flat, rectangular package w

    Thanks Dave. The only thing I can claim credit for is getting David (aka Jinty) to do the weathering for me. Inside is a Zimo MX644D and ZS08AD Sound Project (from Digitrains) with a big bass reflex speaker fitted vertically behind the radiator. There's also a large-capacity stay-alive in there too as there's plenty of room inside the body. If I can find the pix of the installation, I'll update this thread with them. Art

  10. Thanks Michael. That's on 24th & 25th October this year at Leeds Grammar School, Harrogate Road, Leeds, LS17 9NA? Herculanium Dock doesn't appear on the list of 'Layouts attending to date' although it does say 'please ignore this list' (!) Cheers, Art
  11. Hello folks, What a great layout. Back in March 2018, I asked where Herculaneum Dock was next being exhibited and I missed out on the Nottingham Show because of snow (missed York that year for exactly the same reason). Bristol was too far and of course this year we've had Covid-19. I have a DVD of the LOR (it was originally on VHS cassette) which is still available at Amazon and a book called "The Docker's Umbrella" as my mother used to use the LOR in the 50's (sadly it had closed and all but gone by the time I was born in mid-58). Any plans to
  12. Hi, Ordered from Olivia's in the past. This was back in June 2016 so I can't fully recall the details but it was an odd transaction. I couldn't pay on-line and had to phone them up and even then there was something odd about the order confirmation. Also, their T&Cs were in breach of the Consumer Protection Act 2015, Section 29 where they said that as soon as you'd paid for the goods, they were your responsibility and if they got 'lost in the post' it was your problem. I have these details stored but not the actual payment process. Of course, they may
  13. Hi, I don't know if this is too late to the party to help but I found some printable waterslide transfer paper on ebay - link follows. A4 Waterslide Copier Paper This means you could make up your own sets of transfers for a wagon although you may have some trouple replicating the 'Flying Box' image if you needed it. Only suitable for colour laser printers (who would've guessed) so your only problem may be finding someone who has one you can use. Hope this helps, Art
  14. Thanks to woodenhead and the link above, the TMC Heavily Weathered 4F TTS has been ordered from tri-angman. Thank you to all that have contributed - whether we have agreed or not. The above purchase closes this issue once and for all for me. Art
