This saturday the Copenhagen area was hit by what appears to be the heaviest rainfall in more than 100 years. Actually for as long as measurements have been made in Denmark. 150mm of rain in just over 2 hours. That’s more than twice as much as we usually get in 2 months at this time [...]

All track is layed and glued

I got my Cobalt 6-pack a couple of weeks ago along with an NCE Switch-8 and a Littfinski RS-8-G feedback module. If you read my last post you will know that I was looking forward to trying these out in particular because of the reviews these point motors received and because of the supposedly very [...]

 2 posts back I complained about the noise my ESU servos produced. Last week I took the consequence and decided to get rid of them and the SwitchPilot setup. I thought the old(51803) ESU servos were noisy but when the new(51804) are even noisier it doesn’t really look good. I didn’t have a problem with [...]

Rebuilding Bemo/Shinohara Code 70 point for DCC

And that\'s it. You have a Bemo/Shinohara Code 70 Switch ready for some DCC action. Remember to drill a small hole in the throw bar to be able to switch it. When you later color your track the quite visible difference between the plastic ties and the pertinax ties will disappear.

As promised is here a image series on rebuilding a Bemo/Shinohara Code 70 point for DCC. If anything is unclear let me know and I’ll add some more detail. Directions for each step is provided in the image description. This is by no means the only way to do it. But so far it is [...]

Over the easter holiday i gave the modules a coat if paint and glued on the cork base. I wanted to use 4mm cork as that is the height of the H0m cork betting you can buy in rolls. I didn’t think it would be that difficult to get my hands on 4mm cork sheets [...]

I’ve been working on my first 2 modules the last couple of weeks. It’s been quite interesting as I haven’t really worked that much with wood constructions before. I do however have a fair bit of confidence in my handy man skills so it was kind of nice to put them to a test. Overall [...]

4 is the lucky number

This past week i started putting up the rack mounts for the shelving system I will be using. This is basically just a system with vertical rack mounts that you can attach the shelve brackets to. The rack mounts of course needed to be fixed to the wall and i knew that the basic basement [...]

The railroad room

Time for an update. We are more or less settled in the new house. Most of the things we set out to do when we moved in are done. This means that i have decided on which room in the basement to use for my layout. It’s a room roughly 3×3,7 m in size. My [...]
