What camera is on the back?

Jim

Thanks Jim,

The camera is in a Cam Truck sold by Branor systems.  You connect it to a USB port on your computer and charge up the battery.  Then put the wagon on the track. They us a Hornby Closed Van R6422 which is modified to take the electronics and rechargeable battery.

Great video with the cam wagon. The inclines/declines definately look a lot steeper in OO scale !

Cheers, Gary.

Great vids Dave. :thumbs

I love the "click-clack" as she crosses the points and rail joins - really authentic.

What with Marty trying to avoid going "modern" and me trying to avoid RR & Co (or anything similar), you're not much of a mate to either of us ..............:roll::roll::twisted:

I know nothing about RR & Co but how long are the blocks in your 4 track station - i.e. between 60-12, 50-01 and 50-08 ?

Thanks for your comments Pete,

The blocks are  small :  60-12  is 35 cm in lenghth, 50-01 is 30 cm and block 50-08 is 20 cm  but big enough to handle a run around.

I agree but a necessary evil to accommodate the two levels in the space :cry:

Crikey where did the past 6 months go?

My apologies for not posting any updates. I have been spending most of my spare time on dealing with life. Any spare time on the layout has been predominantly spent on programming RR&Co or fixing things.

I did get side tracked by a Lima Great Western HST that I bought at least 10-15 years ago - fitted a decoder and then rewired so that the power is suppled by the following coach - that freed up all the driving wheels so that I could use "Bullfrog Snot" to get traction on all four wheels which allows the motor to pull four carriages around Not Mutley without any problems -
( I  used Google to see if I could clarify when this model was released - no joy but I did find someone on ebay asking 199 quid for a similar model. According to my records, which I later found I bought it in 1998 for 40 quid ! )

I have made one change to the layout since my last post - Additional track added to the branchline so that it is now part of a loop that continues back to the fiddle yard.

I will post some photos as soon as I have tidied the layout up a bit :)

I know the feeling Dave.......RR&Co can take up a load of time and once most of the trackwork is done I find I spend more time operating than "scenicking"

Good to hear from you....looking forward to the photos.

Regards

Thanks John,

In Granby's case I think you can be excused - given the state of my layout I have a long way to go and will have to make a concerted effort.  At least I can report that all traces of the old layout have gone even if the Usable remains are now cluttering the new train room.:oops:

Its been a while since I posted any photos of the layout - mainly due to the lack of progress or due to the fact that I have distracted by the many avenues that appear when you venture into the dark side of DCC or worst still computer control which I actually enjoy.

I thought it was about time I started making an attempt to at least have one area of the layout that made some attempt to look the part and not just some tracks laid out on bare boards.! So over the weekend I spent most of the daylight hours outside in the sunshine building cardboard kits - as you will see I went into assembly line mode for the Scalescene low relief viaduct.

I had purchased some Metcalfe platform card kits over a year ago so I thought I would have a go and putting them together.  I decided after much agonising to make the foundation for the platform from timber rather than just the cardboard as both platforms will be on a part of the layout that is hinged for access to the lower level fiddle yard ( in case of derailments etc)  and the cardboard looked too flimsy whereas with timber it would be all one piece.



I have used the Scalescenes low relief viaduct for the wall directly behind the station  just to give the scene a bit of dimension and have been experimenting with other scalescene low relief buildings ( including the freebie)  hopefully to add a bit of depth into what will be a limited space which has been dictated by, amongst other things  the position of the hinges - the layout beyond the hinges drops whilst the much larger area in the front lifts up.

The island platform is my first attempt at building with cardboard - the station is fitted with LEDS as well as the DCC Concept gas lamps.  These are all connected to a stationary decoder which enables me to turn on the lighting form the hand controller or automatically by the computer which can run a timetable - which includes ambient sounds such as rush hour traffic, station announcements and now ( as evening approaches ) the lights on the layout.   Well for the moment the lights on platform 2 and 3 



This photo shows how the backdrop looks before the Scalescene viaduct is added - ( production line still in progress)  I am not sure if it just the camera but I may have to adjust the brightness of the lamps   I will need to wait until tonight and check them in the dark.

Looking great Dave. :thumbs I think you need to put the controller down, turn off the RR&co and continue with the scenics..! :mutley

Cheers, Gary.

Thanks Gary,   I agree the scenics have been a long time coming.

 

( confession time ) this is my fourth layout - on my previious three layouts I never completely finished the scenics :cry:

As Sparky has said, ' as long as you enjoy yourself', is the main reason we model. I can't wait to get to the scenic side of my layout. It is something I get a kick out of.

If you ever need a hand with the scenics, send me a PM.

Cheers, Gary.

I love that back wall on the platform Dave - this shot is a cracker:




Are you going to add a couple more lamps at the far end ?  That, IMHO, would complete the scene. :thumbs

Thanks for the suggestion regarding the lamps  Pete.

The platform narrows towards the end so the jury is still out as to whether another lamp ( or 2) would fit.   I have yet to make so adjustments to the lamp brightness but adding another lamp won't be difficult.

Having made the commitment to get on with the landscaping I have spent the last three days building Scalescenes warehouse.
I first saw this building on John Dews layout and decided that a full version could bridge the backscene and the layout with little modification. 
The model is yet to be completed but this is progress to date - I am very pleased with the results even if it has taken a lot of my time.

This is the production line -  located outdoors in the shade (after a big tidy up - including the glass of red )



The model is very sturdy as there effectively four layers ...


Doors and roof yet to go on -  there will be no back as the building will hopefully merge into the backscreen  ( like  low relief but in this case very large !)


The interior  with floor and beams ready for the next level. 


All I need now is some thing that can be seen through the windows, which were foggy before and even foggier after I sprayed the building with a clear matt finish !!
Any ideas on what could go on these floors -  I have a LED "welding" circuit that would give the appearance of something industrial ??

Hopefully in the next few evenings there will sufficient light and wine to enable me to finish the build so that my next photos will be of the completed building on the layout.

Good looking building Dave. How deep is the background section you are putting this in ?

Cheers, Gary.

Cheers, Gary.

The background section is approx the width of one window area - you might be able to make it out in the recent photo with the pannier stopped at the platform.
