Signal Box

The railway now has a signal box

I’ve installed lighting inside, but as I’ve not decided where it’s going yet, it’s not actually wired in..

Update: The signal box has been moved to the “Country” end, and lighting installed.


Mimic Panel Updated

I didn’t quite get the Mimic Panel right first time, so I’ve now modified the right hand half to match reality.

This is the revised layout; the large red circles are buttons to change the points, the small red circles are indicators for the point state, and the yellow circles will eventually indicate when a train is occupying each section.

The points at the right hand (‘Country’) end can also be changed via the hand-held controllers; this is a help guide that shows what number on the controller corresponds to which point:


I decided to splash out on some buffers with lights. They are rather neat as they pick up the power directly from the track. I did have to reduce the intensity of the lights to make them a bit more realistic though.
