Stowey Green Control Panel is taking Shape

I have been busy with a soldering iron wiring up the innards of the new Stowey Green Control Panel.
.. In typical Kevin Fisher style it is probably ‘over engineered’…

I am planning to put coloured ‘caps’ on the point switches to make the panel easier to use.

Here is a view ‘inside’.

The Point control are the Yellow/Orange wires on the top left, and Power control is Blue/Green top centre – both going to 25way DSub plug/sockets.

The input power from the Gaugemaster controller is on the top right next to the Capacitor Discharge Unit (CDU) which gives the point motors an extra ‘Kick’, all going to a 9 way DSub socket.

All the toggle switches (Power control) and centre return switches (Point control) are at the bottom, which is the front of the box.

NOW.. onto Testing it all…
When everything has been tested I will have a go tidying up any overlong wires.
..I like to keep things a bit ‘loose’ initially in case of any mess ups..

Llanfair PG Wagon Collection Complete !!!

I have finally been able to track down a Yellow Llanfair PG wagon to complete my ‘Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch‘ set…

The 2 Blue ones are the originals I bought from the Hornby concessions shop near the railway station in question.

.. Now it’s time to carry on with some Proper railway modelling…

Track Down on the Upper Section of Stowey Green

I have arranged and glued the track for the removeable section of Stowey Green, the track has been wired and holes drilled for the 3 points on the board.

Next job is to tidy up the wiring and attach it to the terminal block, and of course attach the point motors.

I have added the station halt and goods shed to show how the section works,
