  2. Hi, yes it is one of the type that Bachman produce, the ex LMS Diag D2046 - the give away is the centre window in the end, it is a drop light. regards Mike
  3. Copied from the Minerva website this evening Our shipping agents in Hong Kong have confirmed that 3 pallets of the Class 14 models shipped on Friday 3rd September as below. CMA CGM BOUGAINVILLE/0FM83W1MA ETD HK 3 SEP ETA SOU 6 OCT With an estimated arrival in Southampton of the 6th October, the latest we should receive them is around the 10th-12th of that month. However they are still trying to secure one pallet to come via airfreight, but have advised that there is at least a 3 week delay, due to the backlog of goods awaiting an aircraft. We have agreed to make a decision about waiting next Monday (13th September) as if we cannot get an earlier flight, the models arriving by sea will get here first….which rather destroys the reasoning for paying the premium in the first place! We will update further as and when we have more news. Chris regards Mike
  4. Here is mine, expecting the postman to deliver the YouChoos/Zimo decoder etc today. it will be 31 421 Wigan Pier. Lets hope that the announced Inspection Saloon is up to the mark when it arrives. regards Mike
  5. Hi Hal, thanks for the heads up, but it would involve more than the sides and I am having to curtail ‘kit building and bashing’ due to eye problems, hence going for the RTR option. kind regards Mike
  6. I have four of these coaches and a very pleased with them. I ordered a Darstead RMB to run in the rake, expecting coupling issues as noted above, but there are height issues that cannot be dealt with so the RMB is being returned and I will have to wait and hope that Dapol bring out an RMB of their own in due course. regards Mike
  7. Mine arrived at the weekend and I have now numbered it - HMRS Pressfix weathering to follow shortly and a first for me, a driver, from the wonderful Modelu range although he has had drastic surgery on his legs to get him into a comfortable sitting position, hope the real BD didn't suffer in the same way. regards Mike
  8. Hi Brian, the photos are of the development model, when released it will be a complete kit with the details, Slater's wheels and a Slater's SG38 motor/gearbox. We wait with bated breath for the launch. regards Mike
  9. Hi Martin, I Hope that you and yours are well. There is another model coming out later this year for the 07, see here https://aldmodels.co.uk/shop/ols/products/ruston-hornsby-class-07 might be worth a look see around July. regards Mike
  10. Hi Brian, looks very interesting, will you be doing a build review? Stay safe and well Mike
  11. Hi Steve W, sorry, but due to some alarming family news yesterday morning, now thankfully resolved, I missed your post yesterday, but you seem to have been given the answer to your problem, best of luck with the solution. regards Mike
  12. Just for completeness, I did finish the S & T Inspection saloon and also the Q13 the S & T saloon is available if of any interest - now sold. regards Mike
  13. here are some photos that I took on the SVR in May 2009 for comparison hope it helps. regards Mike
  14. Hi Chris, you are more than welcome. regards Mike
  15. Just been scanning some old slides and films on to digital and came across this set at Embsay taken in the early 90s. I hope that they are useful for the re-doers, mine will be D9526 regards Mike
  16. Hi Chris, many thanks for your reply, will have to think about the running lights, Stay safe and well regards Mike
  17. Hi Chris's, A winner for sure, well done. Will the headcode letters/numerals also be on the Railtec sheet? Will the running lights be wired up? Stay safe and well regards Mike
  18. Hi Phil, back in October 2018 I installed an ESU V4XL into a Heljan 47 for a fellow Club member and discussed the fan speed problem with SWDigital who had supplied the decoder. Their response was that on some Heljan diesels there is a 'pot' which can adjust the speed or if the 'pot' is not present, set CV31 = 16 CV32 = 0 CV294 = 0 - 31 (output speed) I adjusted the CVs and yes it does control the speed, but as stated elsewhere here, a certain amount of sound is still heard. I hope this is of interest. Stay safe all. regards Mike
  19. Hi Paul, many thanks for your responses, they fully answer my questions. regards Mike
  20. What size IceCube speakers especially depth, can be accommodated in the speaker trays and how are they then wired to the corresponding tabs on the decoder? regards Mike
  21. Hi Callum, yes, mine work, operated via F6 on the controller. kind regards Mike
  22. Hi Callum, John Gymer at YouChoos pointed out that these speakers must be connected in SERIES when I ordered the decoder and speakers for the Class 50, so he same would apply here with the Class 33. kind regards Mike
  23. Hi Callum, not as such, but if you look closely at the second picture, you can just see both speakers laying side by side in the space under the decoder. As I mentioned in the text, I applied a strip of insulating tape along the inside face of the upstand to ensure that the metal parts of the speaker could not touch it and therefore short out. The speakers are YouChoos Ice Cube 40x18x7 and at present, on;y one is actually wired in. regards Mike
  24. Hi Keith, look no further, I have not wired up the roof fan. Aux5/FA3 is the terminal that you need, and that appears to be controlled via Function 11 and CV45 with a value of 16 - this needs adjusting to suit your own requirements. Hope this helps. regards Mike
