A bit of light relief, fellows.  With everything turned off, nay - unplugged, I have one Tortoise motor which moves every two minutes or so.  Just a pulse in the direction it's set, but I can hear it.

It does it 24 -7  The LS 150 (and all the other power supplies) is/are disconnected.

To quote William Shattner, "Is that weird, or what?"

Disconnect the operate wires at the Turtle to see what it does! The ghost may come & attack you to stop you undoing the haunting :twisted:

Turn the lights off and see if it is spookier. Anyway your tortoises should be getting ready for hibernation now shouldn't they?

Weirder and weirder.  It's not the same motor each time, but it's right on 5 minutes between pulses.  :???:

:oops:   Found it !!

Wendy thought the train room could do with a freshen up, so she installed a battery operated timed air freshener unit under the layout, back near the wall.

I was working my way back along the power chain to the main wall outlet, when I found it.  :brickwall

It makes exactly the same sound as a Tortoise motor getting a pulse of power.  :shock:

They mean well, don't they.  :cool wink

I guess I'd better start putting the layout back together.  :mutley

You could connect the air fresher to a point, to randomly switch it every five minutes...

I wonder if you can get a DCC decoder to fit the air freshener?

Add a coal fire type odour and you have DCC smell to go with DCC sound :hmm

Understandable mistake - some of those Air Fresheners do smell like rotting flesh.

Hello Max,

              :hmm  I'm surprised, mate, that you would even consider the fact that the Laws of Gravity, the Twilight Zone or even Einstein's Theory would apply to Australians, :shock: in General, and even less so to you in particular, :Red Card when we normal-people, Up-'ere know, :roll: beyond any shadow of doubt, that you are just hanging-on by the "skin of your teeth" and a six-inch nail through the sole of your boot. :lol: It;s not a case of mis-believing you, Max, it's purely Common-Sense in the Northern Hemisphere, :It's a no no:cheers , keep-on keeping-on, Max,

                                                                                       Kind Regards,

                                                                                  Michael Thornberry.
