Hi Ian, I have being busy working on my layout bus wiring, sure takes time and at night being working on my other hobby modelling a RO, RO ship based in the Port of London Tor Corona Seaways, in 1/87 scale to fit the 1/87 scale trailers and containers and what ever else I can model as a load.
Thanks for your link will save that so I can keep an eye on your progress, I had a look at Dirranbandi on Google Earth, couldn't find the railway station, from what I saw on the net they were saying they didn't think the station would last mach longer all boarded up, now I am interested in the branch line it's self where it started form and if possible an old map, I like the history of old branch lines like the Boonah branch where my dad's family settled in the 1880's.
There actually is a train that goes to Toowoomba , Brisbane t Charleville called the Westlander.
I am on a high with the wiring on of a switch to switch off the track after the 3 way point so I uncouple the lead loco so it will drive onto another block and the second loco continue on to the right island platform and the other half on the passenger train backed in with another loco, the train is called the Indian Pacific has 28 passenger, I have enough coaches to make up the train and the right locos.
Here are the pics, first 3 pics of the of the loco after uncoupling, pic four, the white extension, pics 5 and 6 the switch in position, I drilled a hole big enough so I switch can be protected when the module in stored in the garden shed.
Pic 7 putting some plus on the pic the right hand point between the three way and double slip cross over is an Electrofrog point, after seeing a few you tube videos I hope to fit the partiality issues, a bit of work though, they say to switch partiality with the peco point motor and point switch, I am asking if I can do the same with a SPST switch .
I have never being able to get this point working now I know why, all ways make sure you have bought the right point, at least I will be able to use that point and not waste it as the Peco express points are quite dear nearly $40 now, the first job tomorrow is fit the point .
The other big change is I switched the diamond around with the double slip , better access to the island platform, not sure if I will motorize all the points on this module most probable have some sort of manual set up so I don't have to bend over to switch the points and cross overs.
I from nice cool down under.
