I have got a led lighting fixture to go into my bachmann mk1's but am struggling a bit over how to get electrical pick-ups from the wheel.

I have some small capacitors in the circuit so it only requires one pickup for each polarity - but am even struggling to see how to do this.

Any ideas instructions/ for this (relatively inexperienced) modeller greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks 34C, I am a long way from anywhere up a hillside in Northern Scotland, nearest model shop is dingwall which has only limited stock out the back of a fishing tackle shop!

Re wipers for axles - any suggestions for where I could get suitable material to fabricate such a thing?

Thanks

QUOTE (34C @ 24 Mar 2008, 19:10) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Tim,

A couple of retailers I have used and found reliable for this sort of thing:

http://www.mainlytrains.co.uk/acatalog/index.html put bronze in the search field and it will pull up a list of suitable material

Alternatively Eileen's Emporium 020 8771 3366 (don't believe they have a website).

Doubtless there are many more.

Thanks yes found them on mainly trains so will order from there.
