Superb build,great idea with the raised station.Good use of the space available,my own layout has about the same space available and it can be surprising what can be fitted into a limited space with a bit of planning.Well done,great workmanship all round.

 

Cheers! As the layout is only 10 feet long there was not enough room for a proper station.

Hi Wiggy, I made the schematic from sections of the layout in Anyrail, I copied the sections in Anyrail to a new drawing. Printed it out on A4 and then glued t to 6mm MDF then covered it with clear contact adhesive.

The switches I got on Ebay,

I used bi-colour 3mm LED's red/green.

You will need bezels and a 1k resistor.

I used the Peco PL-15 twin micro switch, one for switching the polarity on the electrofrog and the other to switch the LED's on the mimic panel, I also fitted some signals to the platform level, they also switch with the points.

 

Here's a couple of pics of the mimic panel
