  1. Ordered D5021, Monday, looking forward to number 5 SLW class 24, all orders for the above to be sent at same time around 15 June also update in the offing for the Scottish 24/1 soon as well
  2. The above Photo Star almost ready to go !! Well June anyway
  3. Only staff of 2 and one of those will be manning the phone, so just have to be patient the wait will be worth it,
  4. I would like commend Hattons for their Class 66, I pre-ordered Freightliner 66418 with sound, I have not had any problems with the model the sound files are excellent and the Patriot Nameplate is excellent, I have a Roco Z21 and the start up and acceleration are very good not yet got to use all the functions, because of the above I decided to order a chip fitted DB Eurocargo {all the sound ones had gone] and this once again it performed immaculately so I have pre-ordered a sound GBRf Royal Scotsman, trusting it will run as well as other two. I feel for those who have had poor runners and detailing problems. So thanks Hattons.
  5. Recently purchased Sound Class158 from Arcadia ,Shaw ordered Friday arrived Saturday, less than 24 hour service, Tim is very friendly and helpful, he has an extensive range of UK locos 00 and N,Lots of HO and also 0 and G gauge.
  6. Fine, I did not change any settings though, let me know how you want me to pay your charge. , not sure whether I put a phone number in the packet. John
  7. Charlie both 156 decoders sent 1st class post today Tuesday 14 April.Thanks
  8. Ok will do thank you very much,
  9. I have been doing that the two units are split the good one on one side and all the trials and tribulations with the faulty one , I have been getting the same problem all the time with the faulty one on DCC but it was OK on DC
  10. Charlie Tried setting CV8 to8 on my iPad [using Z21] comes up programming error, tried it on Android same result Loco sometimes fires up and then dies. Not having much look as I said earlier it has only been used lightly and not for while until now.
  11. Hello Charlie, I was a bit slow on the uptake on the DC part, but managed to find a 21 blank pin and about 2ft of track and unit ran OK in both directions. I purchased the Model off yourself when I visited Partington 0 Gauge in 2018 or 2019 , you may remember the conversation and you told me if I paid in full there on credit card I would receive the Model sooner, you sent the unit to me later on when in stock , to be honest I think the transactions were probably 2018 . I would conclude the chip s faulty although lights and sound work and a replacement possibly required let me know any costings for a replacement. Regards John Thanks again for your assistance in this matter
  12. Charlie, Tried it on DC fired up lights came on managed about 3 inches a couple of times in one direction, nothing in the other direction, Went back to original direction nothing now on that. Any other reasons why the unit appears to have failed. John
  13. Likewise, I have the Collectors Club class 90 Sound and it is a very good runner no faults at all.
  14. Hello Charlie thanks for your fast response, yes it does droop about quarter of an inch, the other end has a slight tilt. What can be done to rectify the droop?
  15. Hello I have a Scotrail 156 unit and it appears one of the units has failed it tries to move but only gets about 3 inches sound works for that short distance and then like the loco cuts out , I have removed the body thinking there may have been drive shaft loose, but the model does not use them. The sound chip sounds ok so that's not blown I have re set the unit back to 3 and lights and sound work for a short time but the unit will not move, it does move a little with my finger pressed on the top of the unit [body still is off the chassis. wonder if anybody else has had this problem. The other unit works fine on its own but is unable to pull the failed unit. I have not yet contacted Charlie with it being a "Bank Holiday"[every day is a bank holiday at the moment for the majority}I will try early next week to contact Charlie Realtrack. However I would appreciate any suggestions to my problem, wiring perhaps. Thanks in anticipation John {Brittannia
