October Update

A challenging month for me An interstate trip to Victoria with Kaye saw us away from home for a week. Then my she had a car accident, a close friend lost their Dad and then a week later we lost Kaye's Dad.  So modelling took a back seat for most of this month....

Progress on the U50 decoder and lighting install just did not happen - sorry Nigel G - maybe November....

But I did do something - some more work on the railway crossing project and we had another couple of hours of shakedown running with Barry, Chris & Rossco where amongst the trains were a "wine special" and a grain train for the first time.  The run resulted in a train length reduction by two cars to make loading operations easier.

Following on from last month the Major components were mounted and ready for testing.

After installation the IR components they were tested

IR transmitter & receiver fitted into "PVC tubes"

The full details will appear on Terry Terrance's Launchpad4mrr blog in due course.

Operation after installation and wiring.

That's it for this month.

Thanks to those that continue to help me achieve my ambitions and hello again to all my followers!

Till the end of November.
