Polbrook Gurney Colliery Update - running trains!
I decided to add a couple of extra isolation sections to make the operation more flexible and interesting. Not relying on fishplates for electrical continuity makes this easy because it's just a matter of splicing in a toggle switch into the sub baseboard electrical circuit which provides the electrical continuity between sections of track. A 5 minute job.
This high level view is roughly what a 6 foot high operator will see from the front, the curved backscene and bright even built-in illumination being great for photography like this.
I'll be covering the above in detail, along with the construction of the new buildings and scenics in forthcoming Model Rail magazines issues.
