  1. Just a thought, but might it be when the wheels of the stock go over the central plastic part of the point (the frog/common crossing). If you are using some older coaches or wagons, then the wheels can have larger flanges which touch the frog. Does it happen with all your locos/coaches ?
  2. Perhaps just cut some plasticard to shape, paint black and then add domino transfers ? Sheets of plasticard are available online in various thicknesses - I got a pack of mixed thickness for a few pounds, and have found it very useful for things like this. If you get it wrong, it's easy enough just to cut another one until you get a snug fit. Obviously domino lights won't illuminate though. Good luck with the 25 - I have several sound fitted ones and they are my favourite for using on the layout.
  3. Looking really nice - the effort you have put into planning it looks like it is really paying off. Looking forward to seeing more pictures as it progresses.
  4. Exploring new site...

      Do you mind me asking if you've just edited an old blog entry?

      Yes indeed - and have also just sent you a message asking for a bit of advice :-)

  9. How do I delete a blog ? I'd like to start a new blog but get rid of these old ones first. Can't see delete button anywhere!
  10. Not sure if right place to post and not wanting to offend original poster - but just wanted to record appreciation for a fantastic service from DC kits / Charlie/Ian. I recently bought numerous sound decoders and got excellent advice, swiit delivery and after care when there was a minor problem. I didn't know anything about a fire, so it can't have been easy for them but the service I received was excellent. Pat
  11. Hi - interested to know how you added the extra pick ups to the Whistler, as my 40 is a bit juddery and this would surely help... Is it just brass wire of a small diameter soldered to the brass section in middle of bogie, and then bent to touch the inner surface of the wheels ? Cheers.
