Hi Larry  :wave:


I really like your 'micro-mining' setup !  :old dude:



It looks good with the 'corners' taken off the ends of the oval.  :thumb:

A neat trick, which I haven't seen very often.  L:

An 'egg pizza' perhaps !  :P  ;)





Your fiddle-yard looks perfect & I guess 'multipurpose' & handy to have.  :cool:

It sort of reminds me, of how John Allen connected 'back-to-back' Timesavers.



Very inspiring ! ...  :bg:

... My hoard of 'Hornby' sectional, is begging me to 'fiddle' with it.  :)



Can you comment at all, about the pattern of switches, on the fiddle-yard ? 

Was it hard to design ? ... Or just BINGO ! and it was done ?  :us:



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:



Si.



The business end looks ... well ... BUSY !  :thumb:

Si.

Sorry for the late answer.

I will go with Bingo it's done.

The track is tacked down with pins,
and can be reconfigured it I find it does not work.

I have been working on how to control this little layout at a show.

It may seem a little much, but I will go with Wi-Fi from a cellphone,
which will allow my phone to control 2 trains.

Sample video:

Additionally I can try to hook the younger crowd into thinking,
Hey - trains are cool, I can control them on my cellphone.

Working on using the phone to also control Bluetooth speakers,
with appropriate sounds.

This is the quick set up.
 
The mobile device can change the look of the throttle,
I think there are 5 options.
