The very wierd situation......

I don't know about anyone else, but we've only been in "shutdown" for a week.....and I'm bouncing off the walls with frustration!! It seems strange, but I'm fairly used to spending three, four, or even up to six days on the trot at home by myself...as I've done so for around five years now, particul...

Re: Troubleshooting Motors

The "nose" is trapped between the body and the chassis, and held in place by the pin on the chassis. So no gluing required!

Re: Points - the achilles heel

I emailed them in February to enquire if they had or would consider producing jigs, etc for T gauge. their reply: Hello Doug, After checking with Tim he said it would be almost impossible to create an assembly fixture for T scale due to the limited clearances required. The Zm gauge is the smallest t...

Re: Troubleshooting Motors

You've not made it clear whether you're having problems with either the power unit gearbox not running in response to power , or the actual motor shaft itself appears to be seized. Assuming you're referring to the gearbox.....then to me its obvious that either there's a foreign object caught in dive...

The Talking T Gauge Shop...

Thought I'd post a fuller explanation as to why I have temporarily closed the forum shop..... The forum shop came into being as a result of being asked a number of times if I was able to supply copies of various 3D printed parts that featured on my Robins Run layout. Seeing that this might be able t...

STOP PRESS ---- STOP PRESS

With immediate effect, the Talking T Gauge shop will be closed as a result of the recently introduced Coronavirus measures. As a result of these measures, I am unable to post orders...as simple as that, I'm afraid.

Re: DCC Developments & Experimentation

How did you install the decoder chip into the unit? I'd love to compare notes so we can put together the definitive way of doing the install. Regarding your question on the lights, I think the wiring depends on which version of the decoder you have. The image I posted above actually shows how the wi...
