Good Morning Bob, Yeah have to agree probably right about radio control costing a fair bit to set up and afraid he mightn't be able to move the joy stick, now I quit AMRA don't need to go NCE Digrtax  or Lenz a way to go. I will probably go for  the one you have the new one out has 20 locos as you say can only run three at the most, then I can go Wi-Fi looks like a big wife con here:PL: 
I am hooping one of the positions  on the rotary switches be for DCC and an DPDT switch as well , to close to DCL: wait till the layout is up and running smoothly first.

Have sorted out the rotary switches,, got on working now I need to design the control panel and thing of the panel be just for the rotary switches  blocks and number each rotary switch
I bought a Multi metre have to learn how to use it, next one up from the cheap one from Jar-car. do you have one.

Tony.

Morning Bob, will you get affected by Cyclone Debbie, Lismore copping it bad 11metre flooding they say worsted since 2004, don't think it is raining there  copping it from up steam.
We copped 200mm's since the rain started, last night the worsted flooding under the pergola pics on my post, 80mm's in an hour.
Nice to see the sun again, nice morning here, back to the bus wiring today.
Stay safe and dry, Tony.

No, it broke up and went around us up here. Just some minor local flooding.
Certainly some problems along the coastal strip with falls up to 500mm. That's a lot of water!

Friends in Lismore are up out of the flood zone, others up in effected areas in Qld can't be contacted at the moment so don't know how they fared. One lot live in an old beachside house not built to storm resistant standards.
Might see some sun today, however it will be indoor layout work today. I think the glue used on the platform repairs had time to set before the deluge but won't be sure until I remove the bricks holding it all together. Hardly an issue compared to those with flooded or blown away houses.
cheers

In between the showers I have managed to finish the repairs to one side of the platform and all of the loading bank.

Hi Bob, nice indeed you did well, how long did it take you to rebuild the platform wall.
No rain up here all week what the doctor ordered so they can clean the mess  made by Cyclone Debbie.

That is a good size layout how big is it would of taken you a while to build it.
Do you have a rive or creek flowing through Glen Innes, the poor people that live in Logan, the two rivers close by are still rising Logan and Albert rivers.

Big clean up mess as far done as Lismore saw on the news tonight.
Tony.

It has taken weeks Tony, due to material shortages and weather. Had I had everything on hand when I started it would have been easily completed in one day.

No, just a creek running through town. Only a small number of houses affected when it floods.

The layout was mainly built by a builder friend of mine. He wanted to do it as thanks for teaching him to fly his r/c planes. I just funded it and did what I was told. :>)

Best taking time get top results, I am figuring out what to use for my platforms framming with 5mm ply tops to keep the weight down on the modules made that misstake on the older module layout, hsad trouble picking the module up 3by7ft long .

Nice of your friend to build your layout for you does it take a lot of time to learn to fly a R/C plane,  don't you get wings., if I had to give the trains away will RC/planes would love to fly an V22 Osprey  be a lot of fun guess I would have to build my up to that plane.


My brother is a retired builder should get him interested in helpinhg me have the layout up and running a lot earlier but he lives on the other side of Brisbane.


The Logan river still hasn't peaked going to worse than 74 floods, feeling for those home owners that live close to that river, Ipswich was sparred the Bremmer river didn't get up the levels predicted.
