George's Train Set - The Rebuild Part 3 - Dead Short



Well, you'd have thought I'd have spotted that there was a short circuit way before I got to wiring up the turntable - HND Electrical & Electronic Engineering pah!

Wish I'd spotted it before I bought that extra RHD point, cost me £6.50!


Wiring is almost complete, just got the station area left hand side to do, should be done in another evening, then I can get on with the Boxfile for a bit




wiring complete last night, my Hornby APT-P did an inaugural run, complete with buffet car :)
