Re: Newtonmore - N Gauge in the Highlands, again!

Just catching up on this one, and I've had an epiphany! :lol: Looking at the first pictures of the oval on bare board, and I was thinking it looks like a trainset layout. Then as soon as you put in the divider with backscene, it was transformed, someone miraculously, into a model. People have often ...

Re: NRM 2015 N gauge tour

Michael, I'm really sorry to hear this sad news! I hope things improve for you.

Currently, I am out of the country and not due back for a few more months. I think as this stage it is probably best to send them back to Mark.

Re: My first layout! :D (N Gauge) [Clean slate page 15!]

Well this current controller idea is really slowing me down. It also turns out that the cost is almost equivalent to Cobalt Digital motors :o so I decided to buy one and give it a try. I must say I am really impressed! I think I will abandon my custom controller in favour of the Cobalts. Must be tim...

Re: My first layout! :D (N Gauge) [Clean slate page 15!]

Not really build-specific, but I've made some progress on my point controller idea! Here is the first prototype of a controller node: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60412649/20160313_135814.jpg This can control two SEEP motors and the relays will handle the frog polarity switching. They run off...

Re: My first layout! :D (N Gauge) [Clean slate page 15!]

Well yes, I dabble with electronics and I also have a home metalworking set up in my garage (CNC milling machine, lathe, etc). The reason for thinking about using PICs and FETs is partly for fun, and partly so that I can use a normal switchboard and have full routes set up on separate switches. I kn...

Re: My first layout! :D (N Gauge) [Clean slate page 15!]

Thanks guys :D Nice how you've linked both layouts. :D Thinking about this, it might be good to insert another point on the outer loop, in the top right corner, then it can optionally go right around the outside of both layouts. I'm watching too 8) looks like you can run generous train lengths on yo...

That tunnel looks great. Every time you post a new update, its always something that inspires me (aka makes me jealous!)

This is coming along superbly! I'm quite envious of your skill and imagination.

Re: My first layout! :D (N Gauge)

Hi again! :) The layout has been moved. I now have a little more space for off-scene things, but for now I just used my spare set-track on a table which just happens to be the exact height of my board. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60412649/20160224_165603.jpg I've completed the trackwork for ...

Re: Reverse loop and frog juicing!

Thanks Suzie :) There is no need to feed the inputs of one juicer from the output of another, in fact this probably won't work. The inputs of the juicer should come from a good solid track feed from your booster. This seems like important info! I like your idea of moving the reverse loop controller ...

Re: Reverse loop and frog juicing!

Thanks Flashbang :)

So running a juicer off another juicer should be ok then. I'll order one and try it out. Worst case, I'm sure I can find another use for it.

The idea of running all sidings from the module should simply the wiring, and also reduce the occurrences of the mini-shorts.
