Hello
I live in Outer London, UK and ordered my first T gauge stock and track yesterday. I have known of it for a while, but recent major surgery on an arm meant that I have been unable to model.
Don't know if I'll be able to cope with this size - depends on how much use I get back in the arm, and how well my eyes can cope. I'm used to G.
Still, it's a reasonable price to find out, unlike other scales. Smile

Ok, it's arrived Very Happy

Quick question before I put it together.

Obviously the 1 and 0 are on and off, although it arrived set to 1.
What is the A/B switch for?
Don't want to blow anything when I set it up Confused
Electrics are not my strongest point.

The A/B switch is for the track sensors - Position A means the train will instantly reverse when it reaches a sensor. Position B will pause the train for 5 seconds before reversing direction. If you're not using the track sensors, you may safely ignore this switch and the knobs at the rear of the control box.

It's all pretty foolproof really. Unless you used a transformer with a higher voltage than 4.5v, I doubt you could damage anything or even wire anything incorrectly.
