    Just finished installing a decoder in the Fleischmann V60.
    It was my fiddliest install yet, but fairly straight forward, and it worked out fine in the end. The little switcher runs like a champ and crawls like a sloth.

    I made a small video and posted on Vimeo. For some reason it will not show in the post, so here's a link to it: https://vimeo.com/832772840

    I was able to build the frame and cut the tops to size for these two lower sections. The tops are not connected yet and I need to rip a section along the back for the slightly elevated double track mainline. I think I will paint the framework before attaching to make it a bit easier on me. I also need to add the backdrops.

    Im on a bit a roll installing decoders. But when I removed the couplers from my FP45s, parts of one coupler disappeared. I don't know when, where and how that happened, because I though I kept good track of everything. Anyway, I decided to get all new couplers (Micro Trains 1015) which are now fitted on both locos. Job done.
