:mutley
But one is a 3 way Bill.....takes two motors

Liked the joke though.

Looks very slick Brian never seen that screen before.Ecos does look a cool system

I ,too, like the Lenz LS150 point decoder but not with tortoises! I assume these turnouts fitted with solenoid motors

Best wishes

John

You threw me for a minute there Bill but i then saw what you meant.

The Three way turnout/point has 2 point motors on it therefore it uses 2 accessory addresses thats why it only shows 5 on the screen.

It shows you are being observant and actually looking at the piccys and reading the post.

I read all posts Brian, although it was my particular sense of humour speaking just then! 
Continued success with your progress, you'll be running stock in next to no time.

Yes John you are right about the 2 motors.

The Ls150 units are running a mixture of Peco / Hornby/ Seep solenoid motors although i did before have a number of Fulgerex point motors running of the LS150 by using these diodes in the line which worked fine.

I have some cobalts which i will be running off a Switch 8.

Yes i do like the ecos system it certainly suits me i like the graphical interface when i had the Lenz 100 i did find the tiny screen and pressing loads of buttons a pain plus confusing and spending ages in the manual.
Although as with all full dcc systems it can be complex i find it a lot easier to navigate and use the only downside it is quite expensive.

Brian

Wow! And here I was wondering how many points I could control from my seat with wire-in-tube!

Bon courage, mon brave...

Great progress Brian, and definitely turning into a nice looking and interesting track plan.  Can't wait to see some trains running and how you will develop the landscape.

Regards

Michael

About time for an update of whats been achieved so far.
All the point wiring is complete so at this point i decided i needed to do some sorting as far to much stuff was still in boxes and i know if i did not do it i would end up going to buy stuff i already had. So for all my rolling stock and locos i bought a number of shelving units that i converted to 3 tier units that go under baseboards plus more of the same for storing all other things model rail in boxes.
I decided then i need to do things in a sensible order and i first needed to tackle the angled walls i have. I considered various options taking in account cost and time available as it is a lot of walling. I decided in the end to go for the sky wallpaper option which was cost effective and would not take eons to do.


After completing all of that i then decided to do some carcassing for the main station area and the raised level behind.
The platform carcass wood is double thickness laminate flooring which gives me the correct height as was a freebie as it is wood left over from rooms i did earlier in the year. the back areas are sawn timber  laminate cladded on top.





The longest platforms are just over 9 ft long.

I then decided at this stage to add some backscene to the sky not the best situation with an angled roof but i had no option.






There are many other things i have done but i wont bore everyone with them

Brian

I too have an angled backscene, which we have tackled in a similar way.  While it isn't ideal, I think it works well - yours looks great and the sky wallpaper was a genius idea.  Starts to bring it to life.  Don't worry - you won't bore me with your details and updates!

Actually Michael its thanks to you that i have done it that way the angled walls were causing me a lot of thinking but when i looked at what you had done on Faversham creek it gave me the kickstart to do what i did.

I will admit i did nearly make a cock up with the sky wallpaper i did not take notice when i ordered it it said glitter on the pack when it turned up i thought dog pooh ive messed up here.

But when i offered it up the angled walls it saved the day you cannot see the glitter at all if you did it on vertical walls i think you would probably be more likely to see the glitter.

Hi Brian

How did you do the countryside scene on the back drop? I think it looks great.  Now that I am used to mine (and I didn't have a choice either) I don't notice it is at an angle at all and I like the way the sky comes out over the "land".  It took  a couple of prototypes to get it right, you have hit it first time!

Michael

Michael The backdrop land scenes are nothing special they are standard Gaugemaster backscenes all i have done is cut off the sky section. I deliberately avoided ones with lots of buildings on as i felt due to the angle they would probably not look right but now i have put the ones i have in place the few buildings that are on them dont look to bad.

Due to the angled roof it all looks fine when you view from a relative horizontal level but it does not look so good when you view from a much higher standing up sort of level.

Overall i am pleased with how it came out if i had decided to put vertical boards at least a foot high all around i would have lost a great deal of layout space., and for someone who really likes operations and running trains i would not have done that anyway.
As with all things there has to be compromise

Brian
