Re: Short on DCC?

Many thanks for all the advice, today was the first opportunity I've had put it all into practice. Re-groved the PCB, and checked the droppers again - no change. Finally decided to disconnect the droppers on the LH troublesome side and reconnect each track independently and eventually found it. I ha...

Re: Neptune Street

Andy,

Sorry for the delay. This is a scale drawing of the layout which was done to check things fitted in. Needless to say they didn't and there have been several changes, however the main running lines are as planned.

Re: Neptune Street

Thanks John.

Re Australian prototype; not that I know of. As a teenager of all the layouts I had it was the one that I favoured. Coming back to the hobby after an absence of 38 years I wanted a good length of continuous run and the two yards for a bit of shunting.

Neptune Street

It's a good while since I've posted an update on the development of Neptune Street, the last was on the former forum. I haven't reposted all those previous images of the baseboard construction or the early tracklaying process, instead the attached images are the current state of progress. Unfortunat...
