Ropley - Trackwork progress

Ropley Ropley Shed Ropley Yard
Hi all.

A little progress has been made on track laying the last few days, although not as much as planned due to a shortage of rail. However, the point which controls entry to the yard has been motorised and the point controlling entry to the wheel drop shed is now complete. This was an interesting one, as the real version is best described as 'kinked' so I've tried to recreate this. Not sure if it's been successful or not but it's different anyway :)

Anyway, pictures!

And a rather boring & low quality iphone video, but it proves something works :D You'll notice the tender of the Black 5 skip as it passes over the frog which was caused by one of the wheel sets being slightly offset due to a gear not being in quite the right position. A bit of tweaking later and that problem is now solved.

Back to buildings for the next entry!

Cheers all.

Some nice slow running there - what controller are you using?

Cheers,
Alan
Hi Alan

The layout is powered by an NCE power cab. A really nice entry level piece of kit for the price! The Black 5 has a Bachamnn chip in it and runs like a dream, the 4MT has a Digitrax DZ125IN chip but at very slow speed this is noticeably stuttery so will probably be swapped for another chip at some point.

Cheers,

Tom.
