  1. Because it's a model I'd like and there's nothing to lose?
  2. Well I've just ordered a Hudswell Clarke loco, purely on reading this thread and then looking at DJM's website out of interest. Mind you, there was no financial commitment at this stage, I may have been a bit more circumspect if there was.
  3. Mine is nothing like that, controls my Hornby J15 at a very slow crawl, did the same with my Bachmann Spectrum narrow gauge stuff.
  4. http://morleycontrollers.com/shopexd.asp?id=46&bc=no I thought this looked interesting.
  5. 1 hour ago, dibber25 said: I have a Clipper that dates from around 1960. I wouldn't use it with any modern locomotive - indeed - I only use it to power accessories. I haven't tried a 'J70' on any really old controllers simply because the risk of damage is too great. However, I use a Gaugemaster Model D - which is over 20 years old - and that is fine. (CJL) OK, thanks for the advice. I'd say my Clipper dates from around 1985, is there any specific reason you say it would damage the loco? I have run my Hornby J15 using it and it ran beautifully, plus in the past an On30 Bachman gas mechanical. I have to say I've never run these for long using it so I'm suddenly a bit concerned. I was interested in buying a Rapido/Model Rail J70 tram loco, but I read somewhere in the long thread discussing it concerns about using an older controller. I did ask about the suitability of using my Clipper and was advised above, that perhaps it wasn't suitable to run modern locos now. (my response in bold above) Do others use such old controllers and if not, what would people recommend for DC?

  7. I noticed up thread some discussions about the suitability of using older controllers with coreless motor equipped models like this. I have a very elderly H&M Clipper controller and before I order a J70 wanted some feedback about this particular controllers suitability?
  8. Really interesting and well researched, we owned a house nearby for 10 years and I didn't know anything about the Lastours to Carcassonne line, I'm going to read these at my leisure , thanks for all your hard work!
  9. Did you figure that out yourself James, or did you fid the info . as to how to do it online? I have had a look around for idiot-proof instructions but failed to find a good 'how to' article via Google.
  10. Looks fantastic James, I've been thinking of doing the same sort of thing in 009, this has started me wondering about 6.5. I have seen people rigging up controllers for their Busch locos, rather than the on/off of battery control, is this something you've considered or are you happy with battery?
