  1. Try another decoder to prove if it’s 071 itself or if it is the decoder at fault
  2. SSM has a range of Irish signals which maybe suitable for your requirements.
  3. No spring to tension brushes on to motor commutator Insulation sleeve required between spring and brushes
  4. Sad news that we not see any more excellent pictures/updates 😐 A fine Christmas present for someone else though
  5. Hi Robert , Check the following cv settings : cv2 = 3 minimum speed /start voltage cv3=80 acceleration rate cv4=80 deceleration rate cv5=225 max speed cv6=88 mid speed What DCC controller are you using ? Anyone reading this , if you a specific Murphy Models decoder for the 201/071 and you have a problem with it where it does not operate . DO NOT RESET THE DECODER to factory settings by using cv8 . You are removing the unique Murphy Models decoder mapping settings which are specific to each loco class 201 / 071 non sound/sound decoder eg cab interior lights etc . If you have a problem with a decoder check the cvs from the manufacture web site that they correspond to your decoder . The above cvs are from the ESU site . Joe
  6. Can you post a picture of the switch & point motor that you are using ? Thanks Joe
  7. Hi Ken Congrats on using Brooks Smith method . You can use a sleeper with the rivet as a pivot as a tie bar with the rails soldered to the rivets. Using the PCB as tie bar works just as well as the Late Frank Davis and I have done . I can get you PCB strip if you are in the Dublin area but as the new format on this site now it does not show the member general geographical location and this offer maybe of no use to you . Joe
  8. Motorized turntable as requested 😉
  9. If there is one for sale, would you like me to get you one ?
  10. No , it is not available in Dublin since the late 80’s . Eason’s in Belfast & Bangor do sell it . Eason’s in Cork may sell it as they deal with a different wholesaler . Is the February edition with the David Pearson article that you are looking for ? If you are going to the Glasgow show , you should be able to get a copy there .
  11. The Railway was LGB track with converted loco’s/rolling stock to look like Irish outline . There was a model of the Grand Canal 12th lock and the lock keeper House there as well.
  12. The MRSI 21mm Loughrea's turntable is a modified Hejan unit . The SDMRC 21mm Belturbets's broad & narrow gauge turntables are well type and are scratched built . South Eastern Finecast used to make a well turntable but I believe London Road Models now sell the well turntable in 42' and 50' . They also sell an etched brass kit of the Cowan Sheldon turntable as well .
  13. Hi , try the lads in the Midlands Club in Abbeyleix . Is the other loco running okay?
