Let's try to keep this 'off topic' thread 'on topic'!

 

That's a good idea WTD.  Does anyone have any means of getting in touch with him so that we can at least try putting the details of the spares required on here for him.

I joined in 2018 for the first time.

Presumably there will be some form of notification sent out, to continue membership for 2019?

@SmarTrains

The RailMaster software is not exactly the most intuitive thing.

 

It takes a while to realise that when reading CVs, the green tick reads them, the red cross closes the screen. Just one example of many horrible UI issues. This type of navigation hasn't been used since the 90's.

 

It's my opinion that a full UI redesign is required. Until then, we'll all clunk away...

What is the Make & Model Number of the Controller. 

Is it the same one that you have mentioned on another thread that keeps cutting out.

 

If the same controller keeps cutting out with different Loco's, that could be your problem?

@BuntyB

It is always good and very welcome to see new members on the Forum and the help you will receive is excellent.

 

However, in order for the other members to be able to provide the best possible help, it is essential to know all the facts.  Could I suggest that you add part numbers wherever possible and as much information as is available to you to be able to adequately reference the items that are causing you problems.

 

I realise that this information is not always available but if it is, it is a lot easier to try to solve your problem.

I have a spare R8243 (spare because, how can I put it, the 8243 and I did not see eye to eye), so I have measured the wires.

The wires are 7/0.1mm (7 strands of 0.1mm wire).  I will leave you to ask Google (or similar) to convert to AWG.

If it is gauge 00 dust (on a gauge 00 layout), why not just leave it there
