Another Signal Connected

Managed to grab half an hour last night after sorting someone's X04 motor (got to pay for all these signalling components somehow!) The platform fixed stop with shunt ahead subsidiary is now connected to the 'box

I made a large wheel up from the MSE etch secured it to a bit of Weatherspoon's coffee stirrer (they are wider then the McDonalds ones) and glued it into a hole cut in the card platform edge. The operating wire was wrapped round the wheel a couple of times and secured with a drop of cyano allowing a short stub of wire to enter under the platform. I then threaded the wire through the pulleys on the platform wall and secured to another pin that will be under the walkway.

 

Just need to continue the remaining three wires from the walkway to the edge of the board and this section will be done.

 

EDIT: that close up is very cruel to the edges of the brickwork, I'll see what I can do to improve things though .......

just received a delivery from Eileen's so I can restart the 0.5mm hole drilling in the pulley castings :)
