N gauge automated layout - Weston Parkway

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Thought I should start a thread on this, a new exhibition layout I am constructing. It is planned to be fully autonomous! What with the virus going around, I have pretty much a year to have this ready for shows!

 

Plugged it in for the first time last night and everything worked as intended, which is a good sign!

Prity big!

would look even bigger when modeling N gauge.

It breaks down in to 4ft x 2ft boards to take to shows though, so still quite manageable, got to love full length HST at speed though :D

H.S. That pretty awesome and to see full Length HST flying about too. Will this be on the irish Circuit?

Thing is now when you start running trains things slow down a bit cause your watching them more!

I hope it will go on the Irish circuit, I just have to get the other three lines working and some scenics on it before I start trying to exhibition managers to take a look. The main focus point however will be the automation, I will have a large screen public facing showing the automation working on the layout. Only thing is, it takes 20 trains to run to capacity, I only have 10 DCC so far! Might have to get some guest operators with stock, or an invite to come and run your DCC stock at shows... or I could buy up some more stock!

It's British outline, but the layout it's self is physically in Waterford :)

Looking good. Its great to see proper length trains. N gauge really lends itself to scale length trains. Class.

The rest of the track laying is done, just awaiting some more dcc point decoders. They are out for delivery so will make a start on those when they arrive.

Excellent. Lots of activities for the viewers and more to come when you get further.

What software do you use to control the layout?

Exactly, I want it to be a proper crowd pleaser :D

It is ran by iTrain with digikeijs and dcc Concepts equipment, the same as the new casino fry model railway in Malahide I think.
