      No it is not. Fundamentally it is necessary to ensure you and every other user is protected against security issues.

  5. They were ERDiC lamps. Ely Rural Distric Council
  6. I go with this every time. As my old boss used to say 'Try the simple things first'
  7. Are you sure there are no split cogs?? IT can be hairline and very difficult to see but enough to widen gap on teeth. Terry
  8. Hobbs Warren loaded and ready to head North tomorrow
  9. Hi Have you tried 123 but this may subdue other sounds. Terry
  10. These two will making their exhibition debut in Tanks for the memory (one of the Guises of Hobbs Warren) All tank engines that worked on ex GER metals. A few missing but not many
  11. Agree with above with regard to DC controllers some nominal 12v supplies gave out in the region of 15 volts at 1.5 to 2 amps
  12. There you go, College models, castings poor but able to fetle. Some lost wax replacements and additions purchased, an interesting prototype. I think it is already available as a kit Terry
  13. Definately buy for forward projects especially in 0 gauge as it has a multitude of cottage industry manufacturers and along with me they are getting older. The number of small businesses that have closed without a continuation of their products is quite noticable. This also goes for stuff in production i.e. Little Loco company has just called time on its excellent Class 15 Terry
  14. Not if it had only been used for carriage heating if that was still extant on this loco. The royal carriage heating loco would also be tarted up
  15. The class 33 is one of the early Heljan models and the currrent it uses requires the larger decoder. Howes of Oxford offer the ESU v4XL with 33 sound at £179.99. These are relatively easy to fit (but not wire)in place of the DC control board. Provision is made in the lower tanks to fit a 40mm round speaker. Speakers do not come with the decoder. I would never recommend any of the older Heljan locos for a first time fit, their wiring colours are to say the least unhelpfull. There is alot of so called advice re fitting of resistors into lighting circuits which frankly are not required. You do however need the knowledge as to how to alter the CV's controlling the light out puts of the decoder to reduce output. Later Heljans do not require this.The fan can be operated seperatly and its speed regulated by the apropriate CV but they can be noisy. Stay alive system is incorporated in the decoder and it has two seperate take offs for speakers And then there are of course Zimo decoders Not trying to put you off Terry
  16. Loco's on the GE section of the Eastern had tender cabs or protection boards fitted purely for tender first running. Classes J15, J17, J19 and E4 were so fitted, as many branches did not have turning facilities or had it removed.
  17. Have 4' radius points on my loco and 33's have no problem with them.
  18. Definately two threads so here is my two penneth worth. Hobbs Warren
  19. Will be trundling down from Cambridgeshire with Hobbs Warren. 0 gauge not oo as in listing under Weymouth exhibition
