  1. Unfortunately my replacement railcar from Hattons never arrived. Hattons no longer have my model in stock so I'm now going through the refund process. Pity as I already have a Sound decoder waiting here for it Once I get my refund I may be able to get one elsewhere.
  2. I have now sourced a supply of these. Thank you. Tony.
  3. Hello Everyone. The reason I'm restricting this request to modellers in Ireland is because of the present postal difficulties between the UK & Ireland. I've got several packages stuck somewhere in the postal system. I'm looking for NCE Mini Panels & a quantity of SPDT Momentary Toggle Switches. If any modeller on here living in Ireland has any of the above that they wish to move on then please let me know. Thank you. Regards. Tony.
  4. I'm still waiting for my replacement Railcar from Hattons but in fairness to Hattons its not their fault as they sent it last Friday. The problem is the crap postal service An Post that we have in this country. They're having problems with Customs declarations sent by postal services outside of Ireland. Instead of contacting the sellers or recipients as per the rules that are simply sending the mail back to where it came from All I'm getting for a couple of registered signed for packages from the UK on the An Post site is " 22 September 2021 17:09 We have your post in DUBLIN MAIL CENTRE, DUBLIN 12" They've had it since last week with the same message repeated every day. If they have it why don't they deliver it to me
  5. I heard back from DCCconcepts & the Mimic panel will do what I need so the required hardware is on its way. I need to sort out the Mini Panels first. I've started on installing the SPDT momentary switches on my diagram panel.
  6. Thank you. I sent an email on Sunday so just waiting for a reply before proceeding. Tony.
  7. I just wonder if the weight of the electronics at that end is too much for the bogie connection. Hopefully it's just bad luck & my replacement will be fine. After the Bayer Garratt disaster I am suspicious of anything Heljan
  8. Thanks Nigel. I'll take a look at Arduino even though I know absolutely nothing about it.
  9. Thank you for that. I'm looking at the DCCconcepts products at the moment but I've also go to keep a grip on costs. This could get very expensive very quickly. Regards. Tony.
  10. Hi Ron. I hadn't thought of Alpha Mimic as to honest I don't know anything about them. I'll take a look. Regards. Tony.
  11. Hi Nigel. I am aware that I would probable need two Mini Panels for my number of points & how the macros work as I already use macros on passing loops elsewhere on the layout. The problem is how to get the panels leds to indicate how each point is set & what route is set without wiring back to each of 34 Tortoise Motors. Regards. Tony.
  12. Hi Nigel. I was planning on using SPDT momentary toggle switches to send commands to the Mini Panels to switch the points individually or through macros. The Mini Panel is meant to be used with momentary switches so would not work with lighting the leds unless through some sort of relays which I'm not familiar with. What I was trying to avoid is running wires from the panel to each of the 34 Tortoise motors on the terminus layout. Regards. Tony.
  13. Hi Everyone. Thank you for the replies. I was travelling a lot yesterday so I'm just getting back to this topic now. Sorry to be replying to everyone individually but I didn't want to miss any of the points you made. Regards. Tony.
