The Last Point – 30th March

Malcolm, Dave (under the baseboard as usual), Ray (point in front of the computer) and Tony set out to complete the wiring on the last point.

Needless it did not do to plan and Malcolm did well to control his emotions when asked to swop the dropper wires around to the fifth time.

Tony devised an innovative way of daisy chaining the track testers to help identify which rail was causing the short circuit.

This phase has taken longer than anticipated, most due to the deployment of a new design of frog juicer to automatically switch the right connection onto the point frog. They do work well but require the point to be totally isolated from the rest of the track and this involves additional wiring.

Allan tried to mention buffers againĀ  but it might seem that real O gauge modellers don’t believe in them!
