Decided to convert to DCC

Had a couple of issues with the old layout which I fixed first

Trapdoor entry was never succesfull where it was, so I moved it to the centre of the opening

I think the current Mrs Bracken must have left her hoover there when she was cleaning the attic for me! :o:o

Another few days work and nothing to see

Fitted the bus wireing

As I never thought the layout would be rewired, I had fixed the presses and shelving permanently so every meter under the baseboards was a long drawn out struggle, indeed most of the screws had slot heads!

Found this building while looking through some stuff

Does it look Irish enough?

How do run the track over the trap-door?

 

Couple of pics from the old layout

Trapdoor in closed position

Underneath shot

Basically just brought the power via the old telephone cable and wired it to the track on the trapdoor

The small piece of timber on the left hand lip is why the trapdoor looks out of line in the first shot.

Thanks for the pics Dave, but how does the track hinge? Are you using flexi track? If so, does it just bend when you lift the trapdoor? Or is there also a gap on the hinge side?

 

The usual thing is to have the hinges mounted just above the board surface - see the blocks in the picture - this allows the track by the hinges to rise without clashing with the fixed track. The track is cut on the break-line where the door joins the fixed top.

 

A picture of the top of the door when it's open would explain it... Or try http://www.brian-lambert.co.uk/Hints%20&%20Tips.htm#Lifting Bridge Section

 

 

And, is it Hazelwood or Hazlewood? I think we should be told..

Ah yea, now I got ye. Brilliant, thanks Dave, might end up making one if I ever go full circle.

As for the Hazelwood/Hazlewood debate, I live in America, where they can't spell anyway. My computer constantly underlines things that are correctly spelled using the queens english!

If the Americans want to speak English then they should have to pay a licence fee, and pass a test - otherwise it's Navaho, or something like that, for them...

 

Just wait until I take over.

 

The lifting bridge is quite do-able - but the slightly raised hinges are an important feature for a successful device.
