  1. Arthur, I believe I put my name down for a J25? Was there ever a final price given? No quibbles, just warming the chequebook. Thanks again Steve
  2. Thanks John. Order being placed. Technically this may be classed as rest day working? Oh and that's a world of gubbins I know nothing about on that website - utterly bewildering. Just hoping I've not managed to order a small power plant or 250miles of transmission cabling by mistake.
  3. This sort of thing? https://www.rapidonline.com/truconnect-40-way-single-row-pcb-socket-2mm-pitch-19-0080 https://www.rapidonline.com/truconnect-40-way-single-row-pcb-header-plug-2mm-pitch-19-0076
  4. Most useful. Thank you for those John. Btw - where do you get the connectors from?
  5. They were a purposeful looking thing. Given the apparent lack of vacuum brake and their size, I take it their main role was local trip freight working? Set me thinking if I could use one too.
  6. Happy Birthday from up here too
  7. FFFFFFFFs..... got a week off , I can paint sheds while you make life....... complicated. Seriously - take it easy and cherrrristttttt next time I get down the road this is going to be a different animal.
  8. Blimey, caw, chuffing 'eck, blinking flip and similar expressions. Mine has arrived too and I could run out of superlatives - anyone want half a dozen unfinished mangled Bachmann bodies? Thanks for your efforts in doing this Mike, I just hope that when I work up the nerve I can do your work justice.
  9. Looking forward to a closer look..... had pondered something similar for signal box windows.
  10. Looking very nice. Photoshop is coming on a treat. Now..... con-boxes, Locs and cable runs? Edited.... cos I forgot that "bluetooth signalling" was in its infancy in the '60s so can we book S&T for detection, rodding run and wire runs too? Oh and some where in the 4' needs at least one exploded loo roll.
  11. As a tune once said.... "Bow down before the one you serve", oddly informing them it won't work, why and the ramifications on a piece of timing that was tight if it went right in a slack WTT, and impossible in one with the TSR taken out..... or if a seldom used shunt failed to come off got me my approval and a train through 3 minutes earlier than the indicated timing (and out of my hair). Given some of the other complications it's be nice just to run and regulate trains. Can Mr Sharpe CCTV the layout and we work out an internet based control system?
  12. Proper regulating. Was there a policy, or was this sort of thing a control decision?
