Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

So lets sort out the next raft of problems. The simplest was a hole that was letting light in from the tunnel to the cave. It was just where the roof didn’t meet the top of the back wall. I hadn’t noticed it before as I hadn’t run the whole layout together. It was an easy fix squishing a sausage of ...

Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

Not a happy bunny today. I think I need to stop saying the layout is finished as every time I fix a problem I seen to create another. I set up to take photos pf the layout today and started everything up and the servo on the door for the dragons cave broke. It was already having serious jitter probl...

Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

Having failed to make it to the end previously I purchased two types of servo brackets a couple more servos and some cobalt throw wires to bring the point control into the main control system. I had previously programmed the point control into a tinkercad file so it was easy to adapt to the new set ...

Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

Thanks Bufferstop. The flashing LEDs on the control panel turned out to be a programming error where a subroutine was getting in a tizzy from an accidental loop. I only discovered it when I was testing servos for the points and I would press the button and it would change and change back immediately...

Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

So I decided to overspend this month and ordered the frog juicers and point mounts for the servos the former are fitted already and the latter should be here soon. I was doing some more research on the dcc concepts problem and it could have been from interference and that I could have put a diode in...

Re: Would you complain?

Are you happy with what you paid even though it's not as described? If you truly were you probably wouldn't have posted on here particularly as you said it is not as described in the listing. I would start the process on ebay if I was in your situation. Generally Ebay sorts these things out well.

Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

Ok when I said I'd finished I inadvertantly lied there is a problem where when everything is running the cobalt point motors change randomly and the indicator lights on the mimic panel go yellow which suggests that their is power leaking through the switch which also causes toby to short out the DCC...

Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

Finishing Up. Fitting a buffer and the IR break beam for Skarloey turned out to be really easy with some scraps of plasticard cut to shape and the electronics hot glued in place. Skarloey does a good job of covering the light when hi is in the tunnel. I added a small delay in the code for after the ...

Re: Inappropriate. Ads in the banners

Sadly I get no scantily clad women :cry: although I marvel at how far these targeted ads are off target. I went through a period of sheds and Chinese remedies, now i'm onto play lead guitar in an hour and Network rail approved railway equipment. UPDATE: Just been offered a shipping container and a ...

Re: Trucks in a Tizzy

Additional rolling stock. Over Christmas I visited the Swedish house mafia I mean Ikea and got some more storage drawers which enabled me to tidy everything and get the rest of my rolling stock out of the loft. The smaller brown troublesome trucks while less interesting in themselves I could fit mor...
