...and a bucket on the floor under it.
Lovely stuff Chris
What comes over very strongly in this excellent thread is that when the Romans invaded Gaul, they didn’t pass on how to make decent concrete...
Not sure how i missed this one.
Some really sublime modeling!.
Thank you for the kind comments and likes.
A little progress...the last of the exterior lights for the goods shed:
The bulkhead lights were made as before only with red tower LEDs for the lamps for bays 3 and 4. The overhead lights were knocked up from odd bits of brass wire, styrene square section and some flat, clear plastic from a model kit sprue:
I've seen far worse conduit in 1:1 scale
Evening Chris. Any progress?
Everything is packed up in anticipation of a house move which is dragging on and on and on. But, hopefully it will be worth it as the new house has more space for railway projects!
I, like many hereon, look forward to the resumption of the build, Chris.
This is a truly smashing layout but obviously there needs to be somewhere for it to live !!
Are the stars out tonight?
Or Watch here
It’s just ridiculously good.
Thank you for all the kind comments and likes.
The ambient lighting (including the starlight) and the ambient sound are all controlled using an Arduino Mega. The more I delved into Arduino the more possibilities I discovered and I've been spurred on to make progress with the random shunting order generator which is initiated from a small (320x240pixel) touch-sensitive LCD panel mounted into the front fascia:
Pressing 'Start' generates a random shunting order for 5 wagons which is displayed on the next screen:
As the wagons are shunted into the correct position, they're marked as such using the touch-sensitive screen:
And once all 5 wagons are marked in position, a new random shunting order is automatically generated:
Any chance of some images of the locos and stock which run on this splendid layout?
Hi Chris. I've just found this. Looks great, and I particularly like your ideas for the backscene and lighting. A lot for me to study over the next few days I think!
Fine figure of a man. Too much Brie perhaps?
Soon...I'm having to take some deep breaths before attacking the stock with weathering powders etc. Several of the members here <cough!> have set a rather high bar in that regard!
It comes from a website of model Euro figures, a link to which I’m sure someone posted on here - but I can’t find it now.
Some great characters, they may have been 1/43?
