  1. Did BNS have announcements before rebuild? I suppose it must have, but trains always went from the correct platforms () and there were those manual clock thingys with destination pointers sticking out of them.
  2. The top one looks like it will take standard ¼" spades. There are narrower ones but I don't know whether they would tally with those on a DIN plug. Maybe these: https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/spade-connectors/0534345 EDIT There are 2mm ones as well https://uk.farnell.com/eao/31-945/female-disconnect-2mm-x-0-5mm/dp/2787331 Not a crimp though. A bit of searching should find something suitable
  3. You can program it with an normal Arduino: https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/arjun/programming-attiny85-with-arduino-uno-afb829 Look on e-bay for thechip itself https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l2632&_nkw=attiny85&_sacat=92074
  4. Including just introducing a coach pack for the RCT train in Germany. https://uk.arnoldmodel.com/products/arnold-n-1160-rct-4-unit-pack-coaches-aoethe-berlinera-bluebeige-livery-period-iv-hn4297 (not strictly UK!)
  5. You could look at this for inspiration: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/tiny-avr-programmer-hookup-guide/all Certainly do-able in an N scale vehicle (the AT tiny is a microprocessor from a similar family as the ones found in most Arduinos)
  6. Or the number of train seats per day on a route?
  7. I agree Iain, but the OP looks like he wants to re-invent the wheel. I keep my discarded loco decoders (Hornby etc.) to use for lighting. Both Nigel's and Rudy's offerings would give you a cheaper decoder but with the hassle of more DIY.
  8. Several of Hornby's offerings in the last 10 years or so have had diecast boilers etc. (pre the Hornby Dublo nostalgia pieces.) Are you sure? There is plenty of info on the web from specialists in business in China suggesting that foreigners can own factories but the land they are on is always on lease from the state. (Assuming the regs haven't changed recently)
  9. I wonder whether we will get to see the Torchwood tube station?
