    • Actually, Bill Scott is probably the greatest living authority on NCC locos. He's always delighted to assist.
    • I'd splice the wiring back even temporarily in case you've cut a common return to the decode. I can't remember the 071 wiring diagram and although I have both these locos I' haven't looked inside in years so take this advice with a pinch of salt for now. 8113 has 4 newer LED markers. Iirc, the four prisms enable the light to be refracted to the outlet but I can remember where the LED diode is. They're usually covered in black plastic to limit light leak. The older 3-marker arrangement would refract from either a white or red diode but since they have separate outlet , it does seem like there should be a third prism for the red marker....  Looking in the DCC section forums may be of help  
    • No I hadn't - I'm clearly not trying hard enough! Many thanks for this.
    • That's very useful. Many thanks. And a good reason to get out and about rather than just staring at photos!

      Hi Colin
      Send me an e-mail to majral@xtra.co.nz and I will send you a Paypal invoice for the deposit for the 2-4-0. I am not taking deposits on the 4-4-0 at this stage.

      I am an early to mid 80s' man up to Mk 3 era so am really interested.
      Haven't ordered yet as was waiting to decide what to do so I will definitely buy 2 plough in CIE finish.
      Likewise with the Tara's I have held off. Not so much by the colour but by the roof.
      Any pointers?
