Hello all, I've had a reasonable evening of progress tonight, finally bit the bullet and started drilling holes that i've been putting off, In my haste to get the layout up and running i forgot to pre drill for some point motors and signals so rather than work from underneath i worked from above. I am using both Seep and Peco point motors, Peco ones have been fitted to the points in front of the mail terminal then re-layed along with a shunting signal which i have managed to destroy, with my wiring all in front of me i forgot to wire in one resistor, connected to the power supply and have now blown the white aspects........ However i have it on good authority that it was the wrong one and i need to get yellow and white not red and white?
Sticking with signals i have had a bit of a bad run of late, I managed to salvage all my signals off the previous layout but when fitting to the new layout i have somehow damaged the delicate wiring so have had to replace two mainline aspects. The signal on the front of the board in the Down direction is now fully automated, I find it very satisfying just running a slow freight train round the layout watching the signal look after itself( simple things).
