  1. RJ11 has only 4 wires. RJ12 Has 6 wires, but both use same 6pin connector.
  2. We thank you for your kind comments and glad you really enjoyed the show. We have been at this size now for 3 years and has nothing to do with the Nottingham Shows current size. We had a very good show with numbers up, bucking the trend of recent years. We would like to thank all those that came to see us, A big thank you to the exhibitors for sharing their layouts with us , and to the traders and Demo stands that supported us. See you all next year.

  8. They were hired out on purpose, not accidentally.That's why they were renumbered into the 479xx series, to easily identify the owning sector. As for communication between loco and train, temporary cables were attached running the length of the loco to train. In latter years, back to back radios were used.

  10. Both sets now pulled from service due to multiple air-con failures. 3rd set expected into service mid/late August.
  11. No, bunk area in the buffet. Therefore no bikes carried either.
  12. Both the vp's and mtu's are derated so that the maximum rpm is 1500.This is the maximum speed of the alternator. The amount of load of the auxiliaries / train supply has no bearing on the output of amps to the traction motors. These are separate windings on the alternator. Vp185 produces 2282hp at 1500rpm. Mtu in r41config for rail traction produces 2280hp at 1500rpm I believe. They both have significant more torque than the old valenta's, one of which can still be heard in the prototype power car.
