Finally getting some light for the town started, with some streetlights and gas lamps for in front of the hotel
Using several kinds of lighting including woodland scenics Just Plug, strips of long reel leds
as well as some 12-16 volt incandescent Veissmann gas lamps.
Rigging bus bars and Just Plug light hub to a couple of mini plugs [added later) so the access section can be removed if needed with little trouble.
Here is the FA2 and FB2 with their shells off.
Will put up additional shots of the finished installation once completed. There is room in the B unit for a speaker where the cab appears in the A unit. They used the same chassis for both.
Finishing the highway underpass leading out of town. I added led lighting and safety railings, as I have made the sidewalks higher above the road surface.
Here the railings have been added and some random trash added. (might add more later)
View from road under the bridge showing lights, railing and a poster on the wall
Will add a wall surface from sidewalk to the Road before installing the underpass
Needed to have risers at different angle than the standard 2, 3 or 4% for replacing lead up to bridge and overpass.
Cutting risers lightly glued to board on band saw.
Ready to install.
Continuing town Building with concrete pad and wiring for soon to be Gulf Gas Station
Here is a general view of the layout, more detailed views coming soon. Working on several areas, including the Town and Logging area as well as the Yard.
Adding town areas,including streets, lighting etc.
After receiving my package from Tonys Train exchange, with my DCC system and sound decoder etc, I started the installation in the Vanderbilt tender which has limited room in width to install a round speaker. So here are some shots following Erik from Tonys Train Exchange advice , using 2 new mini speakers.
This decoder has many choices of bells, whistles, engine types, all manner of mechanical injectors, pumps, generators, brake squeal, air release as well as light control and great control of the running engine including very slow speed right out of the box.
Holes need to be drilled through the tender bottom to allow the sound exit.
Checking the fit of the mini speaker enclosures.
Showing the decoder installed in top of tender with strong double stick (Scotch exterior mounting tape)
The 2 mini speakers and their enclosures mounted and wired in the tender bottom.
Engine after install and really pleased with the result, the sound and control.
