Re: 00 Layout Plan Review

be careful of points in the area of the platforms as to allow for the overhang of locos and coaches you will an unrealistic large gap between the coaches and the platform. If you can it is better to have the platform area of track clear of points.

Re: Track options

Flexi track is easy and is what i used when i first started. No need to use special tools to shape just take your time.

Re: Auto Signal Control: IR LED transmitter / Receiver Problems

After watching your video I think the problem is the infra red leds. I had some like that and they did not work unless you point them directly at each other. In other words the beam is not good enough to reflect back to the receiver. I changed to these http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/qrd1114-object-se...

Re: Auto Signal Control: IR LED transmitter / Receiver Problems

can you also post the values box for the c1 command. This should be set to off, also check the c1 value in your sub routine.I take it the C2 box is the override switch?

Re: LED Striplights

I got two this week, fitted one to my mums kitchen. 5ft nice and bright. £19 for two. They are direct replacement for the tubes but you must remove the starter first. Got them from Ebay here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-LED-T8-Tube-Light-150cm-5FT-Retrofit-Fluorescent-Replacement-Office-White-UK/26...

Re: Auto Signal Control: IR LED transmitter / Receiver Problems

Can you post a photo of the board you have built both front and rear. This may help, also on your flow chart double click on the "is c2 high box" and post the photo of the values shown.
