  1. My goodness. Marvellous stuff. Like others have said I might order another one! I quite like the IR supertrain for some reason.
  2. Hi folks, made some slight changes to the layout in order to extend it in the shed, but it still can function as a seperate 'module' . I've picked up a 121 and I've added a station area. The boards are shallow, hence the low scenic amount, but most of all it works. I have a detachable loop that runs outside the shed for when it's not raining !
  3. Ah ok , thanks Noel. I notice my locos take an extra little bit of time to stop as opposed to a DC dead stop, I wonder have I inadvertently turned on momentum
  4. Hi Noel, I know I could just dig out the manual to find out, but what is the actual function of the Momentum button? I've always thought it has been placed in a very prominent position on the controller.
  5. Yes the 201 are also an excellent model. I have only one and I happened to run it yesterday. So smooth and powerful too.
  6. Thanks very much Noel, I have a 121 on it's way, but the decoders are out of stock. Means if it gets here tomorrow I can have a test run over Christmas ,
  7. Hi folks, apologies if this has been asked before, I searched up but couldn't find it. I know it's not recommended but do any other 21 pin recorders fit a mm 121 ?
  8. Love it! That looks great. Lockdown allowed me to build a small shed/workshop/potting shed to keep my micro layout in. I had an old double glazed window and apart from the roof panels, was able to build it with wood I had about , including old fence panels. I'm planning a small outdoor extension to the micro , to add a little more running space. I'll put some pics up soon , but I've actually found myself busier lately !
  9. I happened to watch both other Galway Gen Van items . Perhaps I did let my one go for too little , they could have got it for £60 less than these... . Here is a shot of the bidding on both
  10. Same two bidders as the last galway gen. I put one on myself, it sold for decent money (to fund a guinness liner pack for meself :-)) but it did not attract these two bidders, so sold for much less. (Although still a lot more than my original purchase price so I'm happy believe me!) Just wondering, though.....
  11. Gen Vans appear to be out of stock everywhere, perhaps leading to the higher prices
  12. I noticed these auctions too. It seems a little odd.
  13. With the dough I've saved on diesel over the past two months I can grab one of these. Just curious, is there a vague release date for the various liveries? That'll help me budget.
