  1. I think he means his Nephew ....... who, I understand, has just started to draw his pension;-)
  2. Hi Gordon, I am unable to offer any in sight to the workings of ECoS but it occurs to me that a route is selected by signalling and not by turnouts, if the signal is at danger then the route is not set regardless of what position the turnout is set! Considering this, if you are able to plan the signalling then the leds for the route could be incorporated to illuminate only when the signal changes to clear. Just a thought Ian
  3. … and finally I understand the attraction of gardening, a means of getting rid of the soil from the escape tunnel!
  4. Beautiful bird, Sam …. Heron? … who knows? Perhaps both!
  5. Wow, she would certainly give Jessica a run for her money!
  6. Okay, I feel a bit silly; The last time I dropped in there were discussions about Bastille in Paris, now I drop in and see we're talking about Seironim and assummed this must be another French station, the penny's dropped now ............. silly me
  7. Hi John, The canopy is looking good, I remember you building the roof for Bradfield and I was well impressed with that as well. Best Ian
  8. Hi David, thank you for the PM. The scan has a lot of information, not just the track plan but also the design infrastructure, an "How to" it you want which is very interesting. The design instantly made me think of "The Laird's - Bradfield Gloucester Square" albeit at double the length. Once again thanks for the scan Ian
  9. Does anybody have a copy of the Minories track plan?
  10. Are the Hunt Couplings electrically conductive? I think that if they are not conductive then the interior lights and head codes on the trailer coach will not be usable! An alternative may be to use the couplings from the class 101 as discussed here;
  11. Okay, got it .... Thanks Joseph! Ian
  12. Hi John Leeds is looking good! May I ask what do you mean "and some have strengtheners attached", I'm work from a low knowlege base so would appreciate any information. Thanks Ian
  13. That's an excellent idea, also very similar to the solution from Mckinley Railway, here’s a link to the youTube video from Mckinley Railway https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgQvAbusjsw together with the screen shot of the circuit diagram as drawn by J Pilborough
  14. Hi, Just reading through this thread and it reminded me of a thread that I bookmarked years ago, it may be of interest; If you read through the thread there are several ways of operation that may be of interest, one particular method of operation is the stripping out of the electronics in the servo and simply using a DPDT switch with a couple of diodes and two micro switches. The following drawing was proposed by Bertiedog a good number of years ago. I hopeyou find the above useful Ian
  15. Excellent, and the S & C looks superb!
