i've used printer ink applied with a fine brush inbetween a thin laminate pouch then when dry put it through the laminator to seal it, all i did was lay the pouch over the window frame, then paint on the ink and left it overnight to dry, i think i used some 50 micron pouches, not sure if was 50 micron in total or each side, they were the business card size ones,

Nice model and well built Chris. I had a church complete with wedding party on my last N gauge model but sadly no room on current layout.

Well this has lain for a while, too many other distractions and work has taken me away for 7 months. Well I've managed to get the three main lines laid, a fair amount of droppers and some point motors fitted so still lots to do.

Yes the space isn't ideal and a huge part of the delay last year was the possibility of moving, which has been pushed back but only by 2 years so there isn't much worth in going too mad at what is done to the attic

adding connections for the direction indication, fiddly soldering with the foam backing, now just waiting on the post man for the terminal strip

There's a new version of the 8 and 2 way ADS-fx boards, they have the LED connections on the top of the board with screw connectors, the 8 way now has memory retention, the old 8 way if you run the unit from the DCC and had a short circuit the LED's required resetting, the new type has doesn't there are other nice bits built in...

Yes I saw they have a new one seems a good idea, doesn't really even need to be screw terminals a row of header pins would have worked sufficiently, certainly easier than the solder pads.
not helped by ordering the wrong terminal strip so a slightly bigger adapter board than needed but it works
