No - post them now Nigel - we like seeing "how" it's done just as much as when it's done.  We don't learn much from finished work unless we ask but work in progress is a real lesson in itself just seeing what's going on.  It's no good just saying "I fitted the point motors" - we want to know HOW you fitted them. :roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::cheers

We're fitting Seep point motors with built in switches as we're using code 75 rail and electrofrog points, we've used the beveled ends of 2 small cable ties to centre the tie, while we worked on the other side. We only put 6" of each colour of wire leading to a connector block on each motor, then if one goes down at a show we can have some pre-prepared point motors ready to just pop in and cut of the pin. I'll add some photos when I get down to the club.

:cool winkNigel.

Be quick Nigel !!  At this rate, it will all be over bar the shouting before we see the first bit of wire cut. :roll::roll::roll:

You should have taken out a patent Doof.  There's a firm near here who's pinched the idea and sells something very similar as clothes pegs. :twisted::twisted::twisted:

Hi Peter, just thought I'd let you know that I've put some photos of my layout that I've started in the personal layout section, 'Tolgarrick Road'
