    Are your turnouts cable controlled?


    Philip


    Philip, most are controlled with a rod from the fascia, the wharf turnouts either directly with a finger or small, hidden steel wires. The automatic reverse loop has a tortoise, and the branch line from the loop an electric with remote control from the digital system.

    • Kirk I used the same water method as you. My water has gone dull and needs a polish up! Did the acrylic soften the water at all when you put it on?

        Not the slightest! I used some watery Liquitex stuff, and it dried quickly in the summer heat... Looks really good. I'll do the lighthouse area tonight.

        • Thanks Kirk. I've dusted and polished mine but it doesn't stay shiny for long. I'll try your idea.

          • For those in the vicinity of Southern Sweden:

            I am arranging two sundays of open house showing the Coast Line RR. July 28th and august 4th, both days 12-16 (12 noon to 4 pm).

            I'm now in the process of vacuuming, track and wheel cleaning, tidying and installing a few details. Two Forney's arent running properly yet, after nine years of neglect

            If you have the opportunity you are most welcome at:

                    • Since I am not planning to visit Sweden soon, I sent my brother and his wife a few weeks ago instead :-). He was marveled by your layout (and paintings).

                        • I have actuallu spent many hours in the shed these last few weeks!! The whole layout vaccumed, all tracks cleaned and conserved,all cars and locos have had the same treatment to their wheels. After drying, all have been test run today, and except for the rail bus gears slipping, all run well!!

                          Tidying and vacuuming the floor tomorrow

                          Open house the next two sundays... [:-angel]

                            • Had the first of two open house sundays today. About 120-130 or so visited, including a couple of forum members.

                              Great fun.

                              Also announced that the layout now is for sale, if necessary in pieces. I optimistically plan to begin a new layout next summer... yeahh right....

                              • Troels, looks like you & your guests, had a great time!

                                I hope you find a buyer, and I look forward to seeing what will come from you in the future!

                                Best of luck with it all!
