    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.

    :cheers: Kim

    That is interesting. I have never experienced it here. What decoders are you using?
    cheers

    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.
    cheers

    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

    Cheers Bob, well if your in the area your always welcome to pop in for a cuppa and a play :thumbs:

    Ralph’s Black 5 had a test on the upward side of the incline plus the class 61 had the easier run round.
