  1. Ah not good! If I were you I'd be contacting Murphy Models about repair/replacement.
  2. The fact that it only occurs when running the loco one way would indicate it's most likely an issue in the drive train. I would be inclined to think that this would probably disappear with tume and more running in. As for the circuit board, is it causing an issue? Are the lighs working correctly?
  3. The Lokprogrammer is actually a lot simpler than you might think especially if you just want to load sounds to decoders.
  4. I see you got yourself a Lokprogrammer. Great investment if you plan on having a lot of sound equipped locos.
  5. I'd try some light washes on the ballast wagons to vary the overall colour but that's just me. The plough vans are spot on though, they look fantastic. Overall, really nice work.
  6. Ok. Do you have a link for his eBay account? Also, where is his shop online? I tried contacting him via Facebook but no luck...
  7. Is IFM still selling these?
  8. Not sure I understand your question....
  9. How does it work if you buy something from the uk and get it shipped to AddressPal?
  10. This one might suit.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233757712324
  11. Yeah they’re available. Gaugemaster make one. https://www.ajmrailways.com/model-railways/Gaugemaster-No-Harness-Omni-Small-8-Pin-Decoder-DCC29-DCC29.html
  12. Thanks Robert, those pics are perfect!
  13. Wow, thanks for that! I had a vague childhood memory of seeing this formation but I dismissed it after JHB's reply. Good to know I have'n quite lost it!
  14. On a point of order, in "Irishthumpland" steam never existed and Supertrain is still running in 2021!
  15. Bugger! I guess it will have to be a case of "what if" on my layout! Many thanks for the info!
  16. Couple of questions for the hive mind.... Regarding the MK3 push-pull sets - the only pictures I've seen of these shows them in the tippex livery. Did they ever carry the Supertrain livery? Also were they ever hauled by 121's still painted in Supertrain? Regarding the AEC Railcar push pull sets - were these ever hauled by 121's as opposed tothe re-engined C Class?
  17. I started off with Tony Mirolo’s tutorial to get the streaking effect down the sides of the bubble but I went for a heavier application. The layer of crusty cement on the top was made of plaster of Paris mixed with a small amount of black and brown weathering powder to give it a grey colour. I brush this on the top of the bubble and streak it down the sides. Then mist water over the plaster with a spray bottle to make it set hard. You can repeat this several times depending on what effect you’re looking for.
  18. Very nice! They look like they’ve been coupled together for ages!
  19. First try at a cement bubble. Any thoughts?
  20. Short video of them on the layout with 080. IMG_7074.MOV
  21. Finished weathering by small rake of tanker wagons. This was another project that took a couple of years! All 6 were weathered in one batch but I tried for a distinctive look for each one.
  22. Fantastic! How big is this layout? SO many different scenes.......
  23. Belated Happy Birthday, Patrick!
