My apologies - I thought you were after a more permanent solution. I like the cocktail stick idea - you'd have to let it dry out after you finish your Martini though. R-

Quite a few way to do this John. For a start though can you confirm that you want the point direction indicator at the location of the point being thrown. That is to say not in a centralised alternative location to your control panel etc.... R-

Exactly HB - this from Grenwichmeantime.com

 

Unfortunately the Earth does not rotate at exactly a constant rate.  Due to various scientific reasons and increased accuracy in measuring the earth's rotation, a new timescale, called Universal Time Coordinated or Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), has been adopted and replaces the term GMT.

The Navy, as well as civil aviation, uses the letter "Z" (phonetically "Zulu") to refer to the time at the prime meridian.

Well yes, it could be any number (or combination) of reasons - the end result is the bogie is lightweight in operation and comes off the rails. R-

I got a TTS CO'TN in the Hornby sale and it had this problem. No other loco derails like this on my layout. I didn't think I ought to have to weight the bogie on a new loco. I returned it to Hornby and the technical people agreed there was a fault and a full refund was issued. The whole bogie arrangement seemed to me, on the one I had anyway, to be way too light. R-
