Workbench attention has moved onto another building as I need to raise some funds! I have started another station building similar to potters lane but this time im experementing with the vinyl for use as doors and window frames. Progress is looking good so far with the doors having frosted glass in the bottom panels and ' mirror finish' door hardware!

Thanks Kev the doors were an experement with vinyl that I think works quite well!

OK here we have the first building almost ready for sale just needs a few bits tiyding up before going to the bay....













This building is based on potters lane but has no lights and basic interior. It does however feature frosted glass windows and lower door panels. Better pics tomorrow before listing.

Looking good Dave.

Like the doors.

Can I suggest you realign the section highlighted below, the camera detail is cruel I know but I think that even at a distance this one will stand out.



I would think that due to the uniqueness of the station building you shouldn't have any difficulty getting a buyer on ebay.

Have you had any bites yet?

cheers

Cheers Marty thats one of the things that needs tiyding up along with the brickwork above the opening at the other end. I will have to stick another piece of vinyl over the white trim as when I tried to peal it off to straighten it the brickpaper started to seperate! Will be listing it tonight but it is posted up on a couple of forums to drum up a bit of intrest first. ;-)

Dave,

I reckon you should put the building dimensions in your ebay listing. Footprint and height.

Good job. Best of luck.

Been a while since I last posted anything in this thread. Last night I managed to bag a class 86 underframe and a class 90 motor bogie from the bay so I just need a class 90 trailing bogie before I can resume work on 86 101 Sir 'bill'. No sign on my digital 'train set' yet although its on it's way so expect some pics of me trying to fit one of the decoders into my new 08 shortly! :mrgreen:

Not long after my last post the postman turned up with my 'train set' and here it is..









And for £49.99 im well pleased with it!! After unpacking I set it up and straight away without reading the instructions had both locos running. Seeing them go in different directions will take some getting used to but needles to say im hooked! Now the tricky bit of transplanting the decoder from the red tank loco to my 08 watch this space! :mrgreen:

An 08 isnt that hard to do just be sure you connect things properly as you dont have a programming track with the ez

if your 08 is dcc ready i.e it has a socket either directly solder or loose the socket or convert the blanking plug into a decoder plug no lights in the 08 so only four wires RED black to pick ups orange and grey to motor other wires arent needed unless you add lights

cheers Brian

Transplanting the decoders proved easer than first thought. This was mainly due to me finding that the decoders were of the plug in type...



With the decoder removed all I needed was a blanking plug..



Now fitting to the 08. For those who are squemish look away now as first I removed the small circuit board from the front and ground off the mounting points..



The plug was then carefully removed from the decoder and the decoder was glued into the space that the circuit board was removed from. The circuit board had a couple of suppressers and a capacitor on it and as the donor loco also had them fitted I thought that an alternitive arrangement was needed. Both the coils were removed and soldered directly to the motor and the capacitor was then soldered between them. A drop of glue and the job was done. Once the wires were soldered to the pickups and motor the loco was tested and then rebuilt....









The decoder in the diesel shunter was also a plug in type..



And was a direct swap for the blanking plug in my 45..



The 08 is now trundeling round the dining room table and the slow speed control is awsome!!

Dave, with Decoders, the capacitors & chokes( coils) are normally not required & can be left off. But if you are happy with the way the loco performs, then let sleeping dogs lie.

Correct.  If you find inexplicable behaviour, try cutting the caps off.  They're supposed to suppress radio interference when running on DC.  I remove them as a matter of course.

I did actualy leave the cap and coils off when I first put the decoder in but as the donor loco had them and also my 45 I though I had better fit them just in case. ;-)
