  1. Thanks mick. I know i'm going to have challenges on this project but it wouldn't be as fun if it was too easy!
  2. Well, I'm back here in the planning section, as I had to remove some of the construction... I'm making some changes in the plan on how I'm going to rebuild the railway, once I get there...Before I can do anything, I've decided that I'm going to need a new, slightly bigger shed. I'm hoping for an 8ftx6ft, with the door on the end, as normal. Around 3 sides will be a worksurface/baseboard at around 1m high (lower than the current railway), with shelves at sensible heights above and below. The railway will be run on the back and right hand walls as you walk in, in a similar configuration to
  3. for now, I'll move back to the planning forum.
  4. I've got the same B&D drill (18v version) and it's done me proud... other than the PSU for the charger failing! I'll rebuild that some day, lol. I replaced it with a Ryobi One+ and I couldn't be more impressed with the performance..
  5. That will be the problem then! I'd advise the same... but i think he means a rectifier rather than just a diode!
  6. What's the standard transformer? Other than the power, is there any interconnection between the MAS Sequencer signals, and the Switched signals?
  7. Hi Mick, I've had a look at that video, and and first, i'm going to assume that you can't see the effect with the naked eye. I think you've actually already spotted the issue, in finding that the results are different with camera settings... So, it's got me wondering, how are you supplying power for those LED's? Would I be correct t assume you've pulled the feed from your DCC supply, and have some kind of switching system in place, or you've got a PWM (pulse width modulation) dimmer involved? I believe that the issue you are seeing here, is that the frequency of the suppl
  8. Hi Mick, I've had a look at the previous video and I can't see any flickering or fading, so it might be the screen that you are viewing these on....
  9. well.... it occurred to me i've not updated the post. After a promising start, i had no further development over the summer due to peco not being able to fulfill orders... this has since been resolved and some points, motors etc are waiting in my hattons trunk.... however, i've had a problem with my fence and taken the two boards down so that I can deal with it...so it will be some time before I can carry on. I have however decided that i'm going to replace the shed with a larger one, So that my tools etc are not separate. I'll also lower the railway so its more stable, as I won't be att
  10. Hi Jimbob, Are you able to provide a link to the part you are using? Regards, Steve D.
  11. managed to get the next control panel in place...
  12. They really look good!
  13. I thought the same, but I think whats going on is that they've offset some of the cost with the PSU, as that seems rather expensive to me.
  14. Hornby are releasing these at the end of the year. https://www.hornby.com/uk-en/hm6000-app-based-analogue-control.html I'm interested in these so have one (and the PSU) on preorder from hattons. Anyone got any thoughts on them? will you be getting one?
  15. made the most of the good weather we had, and the dry days since the weather turned to get further with the build. 2 new 2ft wide, 160cm long boards have been added, which will feature a small loco yard, a goods loop and a couple of sidings (when the points etc arrive from hattons!!) the control panel in grey shown has the final track plan in this area. (a couple of printing errors on the sheet which i'll fix later) The remote / local switch will eventually switch which controller the sections are attached to... remote will be hornby's hm6000 when it is released. Local is a ga
