Even older than most on here Jacob. What’s not to like though - love triangle with WWII Nazi overtones (wonder what the filter will think of this?) 

 

Most importantly though, you now know who Sam is and possibly even why he might be asked to play “As Time Goes By” again.  If not, google the title and see what comes up.

No problem Jacob, everyone has their own tastes.

Having just returned after lobbing my little Casablancan grenade, I will apologise for causing all the fuss, although slightly tongue in cheek.  You may have noticed already that I like to throw the odd cryptic pebbles into the pond to see what sort of waves they cause.  I get to chuckle to myself, and hopefully some of you do too.

 

PP, would have explained if I’d been back earlier before Chris did so with such eloquence.

 

Jacob, might I suggest you go look for the film Casablanca and watch it if you haven’t seen it already?  It is right up there as one of the classic motion pictures of all time.  Many of us on here will have seen it multiple times - the characters, the plot and the acting are all superb, not to mention lusting after Ingrid Bergman in her youth.

Could a mod move this thread into General forum  for Bd as far more likely to get an answer there.

From Oz, you can access pretty much access any products you can get in the UK, and often cheaper from the UK source than here.  Can’t remember whether DCC Concepts still have their WA office open but google them.

 

Certainly do stall test as recommended. However, a number of people report open frame motors in good fettle will require less than 500mA so work with standard Hornby decoders incl TTS.  If not then Hornby Sapphire or local DCC Concepts standard decoders, that are mostly 1 Amp, can be used.

Start by making sure you have latest version by downloading it from the link.  Then they sometimes do new item downloads in the background so keep checking to see if it is there after you start RM.

So if I have this right Rob, you simply open an existing loco, change the ID and save it and you now have a new loco as well as the original?  As opposed to changing the ID and writing it to the loco, in which case you have only 1 loco with a changed ID?

You could just open Device Manager and read which com port is allocated, should be less than 5, then check it is set the same in RM setup.

 

If you confirm the com port is correctly set, and you’ve tried swapping cables, and still the eLink isn’t recognised, it may well be faulty. If so I would contact Hornby Customer Care about repair or replacement, particularly if still under warranty.
