Re: Models coming

We're the KF60s ever seen on the mainline? e.g. going for repair/transfer or were they always confined to industrial sites?

Function remapping

Afraid my DCC knowledge is still pretty thin so the answer to this may be obvious … The N27 DFH5 has 8 lighting modes but my decoder only has 4 so can only access the first 4 modes which are not necessarily the best 4.

Re: Bachmann quality control (JF/RM)

Finally got around to looking at these again. The JF "lift" seems to have gone after a couple of months on shed. Gave the RM an extensive wire brush/alcohol wheel clean, oiled it and run it in for 30 mins. Touch wood this has sorted things :-)

ND4

Anyone else got an ND4 yet? Two issues I've found ... 1) Clearance below fuel tank means it's not tolerant of even very small gradient changes. There are a couple of places it "beaches" so more relaying in order. 2) The cow catchers come as separate parts but the supplied screws don't seem long enou...
