    Lever Switches

    Thanks for the info Noel, the hornby controller is the R965, it says on the top the output is 16V. As I said in the first post, this is a temporary layout, which is dismantled and reassembled 3 or 4 times a year. Prior to this every thing worked fine with all the same constitutent parts

    Lever Switches

    I'm having a problem with getting point motors to work. I have surface mounted point motors connected to lever switches R044 (all hornby), all powered from DC off a bog standard hornby transformer. Plug it in, all work fine, once, then all dead, not even a buzz. I have to unplug it for a while before trying again and getting one go again before they die. All the wiring is good and properly connected, nothing touching, the transformer is fine as I connected it to the track and ran a loco. Its a temporary layout and everything worked fine before. Any ideas?

    Track Types/Codes

    Can anybody give a bit of direction relating to track codes. I currently have hornby track, but im looking at getting some Peco (threeway turnouts, double slips). How do the various Peco codes relate to hornby track in terms of rail height?

    Up loading videos

    I have taken a few videos of a temporary layout I have, however they are sizable (over 200Mb), is there any way to compress this and upload?
