    Why me, what kind of decoder do you have? I definitely don't have any clue on working with Hornby, but I did a search on Yahoo and found this website.

    It is very brief and doesn't explain a whole lot, but it looks like in one of the pictures they are only using 8 of the 12 pins, maybe you don't have to buy a new decoder, but maybe you just need some type of adapter or something. Just a thought. Good Luck!

    yer welcome, mate,
    Freelancer found it, I just stuck the pic in. What I want to know is
    what's the other four pins for?? And what about the screw symbol????

    Makes a heck of a neat looking installation, anyhow!!!
