Honby Zero1 Phase3 equipment ..

Hi group,
just been browsing through, and you seem to be the bunch who could
help me.
About 7 years ago I had a OO scale train set in the loft, but times
changed and I needed the space.
How ever I've gotten the urge to have another layout. hence my
I have a Zero1 setup, and had the 'Phase 3' display boards fitted to
it, I still have the whole setup, but wondered if anyone knew where I
could get more of these display boards and modules? Also looking for
the accessory modules.........OK some might say why bother there are
newer DCC systems around, but I like the fact that this was the first
(I think) and it does what I want it to do.
Oh one other thing, are there any circuit diagrams of the zero1
system, so if I can't get ready built modules, I might be able to
build my own.

You will have to frequent secondhandstalls/dealers and ebay to get more,
MERG, has quite a lot of information and kits for replacement keyboards. Keith

Phil: You could just try cleaning the contacts on each of the display modules: the system used a serial distribution based on detecting a load (plugged in led) at any module position, (and had to be 'taught' how many leds there were by the 'programming' mode) -- a dodgy contact on say one of the leds eg 23left will cause 23left to be displayed on 24left ans the otrhers shiofted on by one (but not necessarily 23 right....) -- so cleanliness is next to godliness on those contact pins - just connecting them a few times will help to clean the contacts.
After that, since it has no moving parts, it is reliable. (I have the maximum number of modules (130 poins/signals 99 addresses) packed into a 2metre display which can be seen at

I have half changed to dcc: I used a 4 wire distribution system for zero-1 (track and accessories) and have the track on dcc, and accessories on Z-1 so that I can continue to use the micromimic!
