Something Achieved !

Posted by Dad-1 , 31 March 2012 · 203 views

Posting twice in one week - something of a record .....
As I can't find a way of extending a thread by additional postings we have a new one !!

After a couple of days 'messing around' I've at last made all the track on station boards 1 - 3 go live !!
Not a single wiring glitch although two crossovers are not yet attached to their decoders due to being
on separated boards and I've not bought the connecting plugs & sockets.

I so often hear of difficulties with double slips and being code 100 track my slips are the only insulated
frog turnouts. So once this went live I had a little play testing by traversing the slip in all directions using a
selection of locomotives. All went through even at slow speeds, a Dapol 14XX; Hornby Railroad 9F; Bachmann
Robinson 04; Bachmann Midland 3F.
To try and get a scale feel I had a 6 coach train of clerestory coaches along what will be platform 1 with a local
'B' set being pulled by the 14XX at what will be platform 2.
