Awhile back, November 2012 I brought one of the Ixion models Hudswell Clarke 060t mainly because I like and perhaps with looking at doing 7mm in the future when the old eyesight is not so good. I have not run it since I brought it so going to Chatham today present the opportunity to buy a piece of track to test it on.
So an evenings work saw me wire the handheld controller that I have been meaning to do for ages and then hey presto one engine and coal truck running up and down – great fun!
I also brought a scratchbuilt Y6 tram off Ebay sometime ago never tested – motor works but gear is out of mesh. Job for a rainy day me thinks.
