Excellent, thoroughly enjoyed that! Thanks for sharing
Terrific, some rake of tanks you have there. Brilliant.
I'm so jealous - spot on Ralph looks like it was worth all the effort
You have done a brill job thank you for showing us.The Black 5 is a lovely a loco quite powerful with the rake of tankers behind her. Well done.
Clive,Bob,Toto,Paul,Gloria. Thank you for your nice comments.
Thank's again Kim for all your hard work and assistance, in getting to this stage
What an awesome railway! Thanks for posting the video up. And the Black 5 is beautiful!!!!!
Cheers again Ladies and gentlemen !
I’m sure once Ralph sorts out a few coupling issues and sorts out the stock there will be plenty more videos to come.
One of the main issues is the temperature here at the moment. The track is fine, no major issues at all with the heat, other than burning your arm when you forget and lean on it the issue is the DCC decoders shut down at around 30 degrees +, Zimo decoders slightly higher, so running sessions are limited to early / late sessions until the weather cools down.
That is interesting. I have never experienced it here. What decoders are you using?
Hi Bob, both of these locos, Deltic and Black5 are running on ESU XLV4 decoders. The day we filmed the running was 32-34 degrees and both loco had been working flat out to test the trackwork and pulling power up a 7.5m incline.
I don't use those decoders so probably explains why I have never suffered any problem running in those temperatures for hours on end.
More testing ...
But it was running “wrong road”?
Error corrected on the latest testing sessions video’s Andy
Thanks for the videos Kim, looks very nice. Should be good weather for running trains now. I am hoping to make it across to WA mid year to visit some friends.
Have not been there since my motorbike ride in 1980.
Cheers Bob, well if your in the area your always welcome to pop in for a cuppa and a play
Ralph’s Black 5 had a test on the upward side of the incline plus the class 61 had the easier run round.
Great video Kim, thanks...
