Yes, I have a railway in my garden. Colwick is on a moveable baseboard that plugs into my railway when I'm playing trains. It's too delicate to live outside and I have a shelf for it in the shed. Generally model railway track can live outside. Electronics and point motors have to be carefully located under cover.
Ah, that makes sense. Some of it does look too delicate to stay outside. That station does look amazing though, there’s so much detail in it.
Happy for you to use it on Facebook.
Great, just checked and a quick post has already been added.
. Something called DCC++ex is grabbing a lot of attention. Its a Mega, a motor shield and a PSU and its an alternative to a £200 model railway controller, so you can workout why its got peoples interest.
We get a lot of customers that are either model railway clubs or enthusiasts so I know there's a crossover with Arduino. Didn't know about this project though, interestingly, I will investigate this further.
If you are interested I can write you a post for your Blog on the Information display. I could also do write ups on other model railway electronics projects I've completed with your products.
That would be great thanks. As I mentioned before, we do get lots of customers that are into model railways and our blog site does get a lot of traffic (if not post) so I'm sure it would attract plenty of attention.
