To begin this topic I'll post one of my rake of CDA china clay hoppers which now number 20. Normally hauled by a class 37, sometimes two in multiple, on this occasion a class 50 was pinched from main-line duties.

The weathering is all mine though some of the wagons have a spray of beige (why beige?) underneath applied at the factory. Some of the wagons could do with more dirt - all things in time!

Is that a reflected watery backdrop quest:

Thanks Ed.

It's a sky back scene with dappled sunlight shining through one of our trees. As the tree moves in the breeze it creates that effect at times on the back scene.

Looked really good, atmospheric if that's the right word.

This will be familiar to some here and was originally created for another project altogether. It's not everyone's "thing" but it does show off the layout and the variety of moves I can make using nothing more than simple DC and a few Hornby point levers.

Turn your sound on and select full-screen mode.

Oh alright... if you insist :lol:

By relating the photos to your layout it just reinforces what a great job you've done with respect to scenery.
I think you'd better have one of these.
:doublethumb


mind you, I haven't seen a Domen on the layout yet have I?

From time to time suggestions are made around the traps that DC cannot produce the slow-speed control achievable with DCC.

Well - can it or can't it?

I run DC. There are three track feeds spaced about 10 - 12 metres apart and that's all the power input there is. The rest is down to the controller and locos.

First of all a double-header, notoriously difficult to control so I'm told by some in the hobby, tackling reverse curves and an adverse gradient.



Then a respectable brake and stop by a long train which should surely tax the loco's slow-speed control if anything would.



I rest my case!

Even allowing for the jerky motion of the movie, Rick - that's not even close to DCC slow speed running.

Sorry.  Case dismissed.  :lol:

I guess for DC, the slowdown is good but I will agree with Max , that DCC gives better start/slow actions subject of course to a reasonably good mechanism.

An excellent attempt - the best I've seen so far.   :thumbs

I'll do a test on Notch One over an inch (or 25mm if I can't find my old measuring stick), to set a bench mark.

Back soon.

OK    15 seconds to cover an inch.

My Accutrack speedometer measured it as  0.5 S.M.P.H. - which is the smallest increment it has.

Hi Rick

The slow down and stop looked good to me.

Not sure about the double heading, but how slow is slow :hmm

As sol says, lot depends on the mechanism.
