Hi Matt.  As you said, I did test, it was a DPDT Slide Switch. And I think that it was my over enthusiasm to get a through service and playing trains again that was the problem. I will still be using my camera/ laptop duo to add, when the time comes, photos to the gallery. All I need to do is find or remember the correct passwords for all my devices.Best wishes Kevin

Hi Brian. And the findings? I was over zealous with my soldering, I fried the connections on one side of the switch on one side, thank goodness that I purchased DPDT, Barry did an excellent job, I would have been testing from now until doomsday.    Best wishes Kevin

Time for ballasting now Kevin that will keep you occupied for a few days.
At least you know with Barry helping you everything is as it should be and you had wired it properly you were only  i bit overenthusiastic soldering the switch.
With Barry visiting you it sorted it if he had not kindly done that trying to sort it in this thread it could have been a very long time until it was resolved.

Brian

Whilst I was over with Kevin the other day I took a couple of photos to show "base camp" as it were - this is the start point.  The two "planks" are actually plywood cases with hinged lids and carrying handles.  The plywood top easily takes track pins and the lift up lid makes a great backscene.  You can see the divider between the two boards - a hinged arrangement that folds neatly into the lid when not in use and adds stability to the lids when opened and engaged on the captive bolt set into the surface of the fiddleyard board.

On the left is the connector for the controller inputs with a nice long lead so this can be mounted where the "banana" pluigs are - between the baseboard joint and the scenic break.

Kevin might be too modest to say but this is a strong base and I am sure that people will continue to support him as he leaps off the top of the scenic cliff (as it were) and starts with the green stuff!!

As an interesting aside, spending 10 minutes driving the "Gronk" up and down with its slow running and range of sounds, honks and hisses made we wonder on the way home whether I could build myself a DCC-sound plank with that bit of spare plywood in the garage.....................

Hi Barry.  Thank you very much . Well said, I am pleased with all the assistance that I have had from the Forum, but I am  especially grateful to you for giving up your time to get me, an “old codger” back on the road. Best wishes Kevin PS. I have learned a new term today, “ Gronk “ .

Yes, that is a very clever and wonderfully constructed baseboard.  I like how it is easy to fold and put away, but then can come to life when it is opened up.  I assume that a back scene can be fitted that won't be damaged when the lid closes.  Otherwise a back scene fitted to hardboard or something that can be inserted into the lid when it is open will be required.  That can easily be held in place with some magnets, if necessary.  Buildings will obviously have to be stored and placed when operating, but plenty of scope with other scenic details.  Now it is operational and very functional, I look forward to its next stage of development.

Michael

Hi Michael. Thank you. The Lid is two and half inches deep, depending on how artistic I can get? it should be deep enough.  Best wishes Kevin

Thanks to Barry`s photo and description we can all now see how well you have constructed the baseboards Kevin.
And now the nasty DPDT switch has been sorted you are well on your way i have no doubt there has been a lot of locomotive testing over the last week.
Looks like ballasting next for you Kevin and making some structures.
Barry making a dcc plank is a good idea you can have hours of fun with them and especially with a few small sound locos if your into steam a pannier is a great little sound loco.

Brian

You've been hiding your light under a bushel Kevin - that's a great looking "plank".

As others have said, now the electrics are in order, you can only move one way !!  Give your brain a rest and make some buildings or do some scenic work - whilst constantly "testing" your locos of course ......................

A PANNIER!!!   Wash your mouth out Sir!  :mutley :mutley :mutley

I might actually re-live my youth and model MR/LMS (that is I modelled them when I was young, not that I remember the MR when I was young)

I think Kevin's deep lids will be great for mounting building flats/low-relief as they can remain in place when the lid is closed.  They will also allow huts and the like to be fixed to the surface of the board.  Taller structures will have to lift off but are easily stored in modern plastic stackable crates.

Hi Brian, Petermac. Thank you for your replies. My ex GWR 57xx in midnight metropolitan livery, has also had the sound treatment, but it puffs along instead of growling.  Best wishes Kevin

Perhaps one of the GWR nutters will tell us what that clanking noise is when its going along and idling sounds like something is ready to fall off it. :lol:
