    Buchmann DDC operation

    Yes you need to put a decoder in the loco. Do not leave the loco as is on the track with DCC power applied, the motor will make a singing sound and could burn out. Ken

    Evening all!! Not sure if you've seen the news, we had a 6.3 mag earthquake last Tuesday, only around 1km deep and a few kms from the CBD, looks like around 1/3 of the buildings will have be demo'd. My family and home are all good, the east side of town was hardest hit. So just thought...

    Peco medium turnouts

    I've used insulfrog Peco's, depending on the loco, they can short across the two tracks. I found I had to file a small gap between the rails. It's been awhile since I had them tho, so I'm alittle foggy. Very smooth otherwise, I loved the positive switch action. Ken.
