Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Everything you touch looks absolutely superb. Very inspirational to those of us a long way behind (even if I can't sort a simple short).

Keep posting the pictures.

Re: Wiring short

I use the F wire to change the LED route indicator on the control panel. So do I not need D & E wires? But even with these disconnected the short still occurred, but against what?

Wiring short

I've been using lockdown to progress the installation of all the point motors (pm's) on Neptune Street's good yard, 10 in total. The two images show an overview of the points in the yard and the two points providing the entrance into the yard from the goods loop. https://i.postimg.cc/gX0Bbh0p/IMG-39...

Re: CURVED POINTS

A question I wish I'd asked before installing a Peco set-track curved point in a shed yard area due to a lack of space. I note Brian's comments.
