  1. every post about the problem, does not solve the problem - it is the problem..... It is really simple - dont post without a bargain or to update with pertinent info about a bargain.... oh er hang on: Cheap IC buffet anyone? http://herefordmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=369_370_377_386_388&products_id=5771
  2. After new firmware chips from NCE for both the power cab and the 5A Power base - my option / functions works fine now.
  3. Their Dapol Decoders seem cheap too... https://www.collettsmodelshop.co.uk/product-category/model-railways-2/oo-gauge/Dapol-oo-gauge/digital-decoders/
  4. It is sad, having used the shop since it was first opposite Lawson St Police station, however my perception has been that it was always a little too kit biased and for whatever reason shunned DCC for far too long. As someone who still misses the random chaos that was Trains and Transport I think there was a bit of a lack of passion.
  5. The 31 had chassis rot - so a spare was made up from plasticard - thus its a dummy and is dragged round by the 08 slowly to allow the layout operator to go for a pee and a brew...
  6. Using the Imperium in mine - works fine.
  7. I would suggest asking the the DJM section. Though given the demise of that vendor i would expect return. In other news some bargains: cheap parcels vans: https://railsofsheffield.com/products/27667/Bachmann-34-328a-oo-gauge-50ft-ex-lms-piii-parcels-van-br-blue-weathered Rails also seem to have quite a few sub £25 quid Bachmann Mk1s in various shades...
  8. I struggle to grasp what you intentions of posting are in this thread - i recall lots of comment and no bargains? Perhaps there is an improvement opportunity here lets keep it on topic - for everyone to benefit. I don't model in O - but if these bargains keep coming and making it little more to do that OO i may need a bigger house. O Gauge Shunter @ £175 today at Rails of Sheffield. https://railsofsheffield.com/products/31007/Heljan-2590-o-gauge-hunslet-class-05-br-green-no-wasp-stripes-shunter-locomotive
  9. Need some cheap bags of scenic scatter - fancy an autumnal look? here you go - from as little as £1 a bag https://www.hattons.co.uk/stocklist/1000389/1000805/hornby_grass_ground_lichen_hedges_and_foliage/bargain_list.aspx
  10. Some interesting ones from Hattons today Shunter + 3 wagons bundle ICI @ 69.50 https://www.hattons.co.uk/507885/hattons_bundles_h4_b_j_002_janus_bundle_with_0_6_0_janus_diesel_shunter_in_ici_maroon_livery_with_three_mat/stockdetail.aspx and Oxford Rail Dean Goods with sound - under 150 seems cheap for anything DCC sound these days https://www.hattons.co.uk/202880/oxford_rail_or76dg002xs_class_2301_dean_goods_0_6_0_2409_in_br_black_with_early_emblem_dcc_sound_fitted/stockdetail.aspx
  11. Hattons have some mega pricing on Dapol 121's some liveries are as little as £79. Gone for the highland one myself https://www.hattons.co.uk/stocklist/1000396/dapol_/bargainbymanufacturer.aspx
  12. Sorry to revive an old post. I am really struggling with my NCE - have tried both cabs - neither seems to be able to access anything beyond F12 - i know the shift key works as i can get f10-12 but no joy with shift headlight or option ( yes i reprogrammed to 122) - what am i doing wrong?
  13. Just got my nice blue 26 from the KGR link a few pages back ... Runs nicely - now to find a decent sound project - and of course re-seat the classic Heljan light tubes which promptly fell out on body removal
  14. I don't think you are grasping the wheel to steel interface aspect of running rails.
