dcc arrives in kyle...
The layout is due to appear at the 2mmFS AGM tomorrow...in fact it's the first AGM I have ever managed to attend having joined the Association just before departing for BCN.
Having made the break to DCC at the end of last year, chipped a few locos, then got distracted by the senior scale, it was time to try and get it working....and this seemed a good milestone. A few extra wires to solve some dodgy track connections and things seem to be running...albeit no sound. One step at a time.
Most of the locos don't have lights as when I detailed them some time ago the fragile Dapol wires seemed to detach very easily...though am not so worried as the lights weren't as intense from my memories...37's excepted
I took the morning off today to set up and do some test runs. The class 27 is out of action but I think help is on its way for that tomorrow
I would just like to thank Nigel Cliffe for his advice and knowledge on DCC (and replying to my numerous numpty emails on the subject) and suggesting I look at the Uhlenbrock Daisy II system...very happy with it so far.
Here's a few shots of the set up from this morning and I shall take my Thurso mock up along to get some feedback.
There might be a few visitors to Kyle tomorrow so I hope to report back with some shots capturing this.
Just a word of warning though - the same rule applies for the layout as the Contractors tell me when I snag the building cladding...don't stand any closer than 3 metres to view it...
