Point servo wiring complete and further work on the droppers. In the meantime, wifi is coming to Dockland.
What every railway modeller hates - working under the baseboard. This week it has all been about droppers and servos.
Pointwork was the order of the day as Malcolm C started wiring the points and with Dave's help, drilled the holes to allow servos to change the points. Find out about the green missile.
Big focus on the completion of the trackwork. A lonely wagon is seen to be checking all is OK.
After a short intermission, work has resumed on Dockland. The custom trackwork for the wagon turntable is junderway and the track has now been pinned.
Significant effort expended on the scratch built wagon turntable at the side of the docks. A new ground frame hut is being produced.
The DCC controller was finally installed and the first version of the mimic panel was completed. Malcolm C and Dave started to plan the pierhead track configuration.
Just when you think you have escaped, something always turns up. A dangling cable has been eliminated and the replacement of the DCC controller case became a bigger job than anticipated.
