It certainly does, I haven't fitted one yet and they really buzz loudly when they switch, not like your clickety clicks...

g'morning
thought i'd take some photos of the state of play in the attic
its still a non runner up there but this does mean that i'm cracking on with jobs rather than running trains.
current jobs include;
laying, tacking, beveling and painting cork
painting track
wiring power feeds
wiring point motors
so some pics...
something i notice about the layout shots on here [esp the bigger round the rooms] is that they are close up or overviews of one area, rarely can you get a shot of the whole thing, so in a attempt to rectify this i have done a crude join of 2 pics to make a panorama, [probably worth clicking to open large]
Image
and a couple of closer up shots of a little siding area, i can see i need to go over the track with the sleeper grime one more time, but its starting to get there. ballasting next for this area when the other jobs are done and the track is tested

hope you like

Title changed - I can't think what you mean about bears tho :lol:

Looking good - I guess not wiring up the track power does make it so you have to get on with the other jobs rather than running the trains.

DONE!
now i just have about half a dozen points to paint, plus lots of flexi. i've got some substaintial areas painted and laid with power feeds and point motors holes drilled so its getting there...
i'm aiming to get to the stage where all the track is painted and the power feeds are done so i can run trains again
then i'll concentrate on getting all those point motors done
its nice to get one job competed though.
