Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

Just had a look at Amazon, looks like Axminster has this (Co series) in stock. You could give them call re the C1.?

Re: Llwyndrissi Halt.

At the end of the day, a small lathe for accurate metal work is not going to be cheap. But something like this (see link) is probably the type you may be looking for. :- https://www.axminster.co.uk/axminster-model-engineer-series-c2-300-mini-lathe-101356 Small, model making lathes like the Unimat ju...

Re: N Gauge Points - standard or long

Probably a more useful reply for consideration, here is a comment from another member in reference to OO points, but should be relevant in N gauge as well. :- Mountain said :- At the end of the day, like the prototype, you can only use what fits in the location you have available, so if you only hav...

Was wondering how you were coping in your loft. There isn't a cool surface anywhere down south.

As usual, a good result. I like the photographic view point also.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

With thanks for posting pictures of your layout, always a joy to see. Pity you don't have the layout in a large shed, would be a bit cooler for you. No plans to move it suppose ? :0)

Re: Arduino controlling servos help needed

Paul-H. I had the same issue re Arduino sketches. No doubt you have found it is almost impossible to find a pre-written sketch. Even one that you can modify or adjust yourself. I built an N gauge two gate module with two servos. One suggestion that came up when I asked the same question, was to use ...

Mind you if it was not for adverts, as annoying as they are, a lot of the content would not be free, and might be a case for subscription only internet.

Re: ARDUINO PROGRAMMING, AND INTERFACING HELP

Thanks Gordon H,
Maybe I should have looked at PIC rather than Raspeberry or Arduino in the first place, as it seems more relevant for doing a specific task. I will bear this in mind when I build up more enthusiasm in the future, together with a little better planning.

Re: ARDUINO PROGRAMMING, AND INTERFACING HELP

Not being very good at compiling an Arduino sketch, I spent ages to try and find a sketch on-line, even the Arduino site itself. I only wanted to operate two crossing gates via two press buttons. i.e open, closed. Never found any solution or simple help, just experts keeping the ''secrets'' to thems...

Re: Servo driven level crossing (Lumsdonia Tip 804)

Hi Timbersurf,
After so many frustrations with my interest in model rail, and lack of space at the moment, this is on the back burner while I concentrate on wooden model boat building. :0)

Or you could make something like this, with an in-built water tank :-
