Not long ago Alan showed us how he was syncing his layout sound with his ipad thingy. It went down well, so here’s the talented Dangerous Dave showing off his sounds:
Just uploaded this video showing a running session with diesel and steam , most with sounds. Gives a few ideas of what the sounds are like.
And now more scratch building from Kim.
“Hi Al. Just an example these are the main bus lines. These lines will be active. I have modified them since this picture to separate them a little more.
Each transformer will have a line from them to the bus lines. I added an old pic of my station for an example. you see the main bus lines with the transformers connected to the bus lines. Those lines are for show but still carry power from the main lines.
In the old station I hooked power to it and it worked great.But found it was scary lol to go near so I took it apart and am rebuilding it safer and better .Some of you think why don’t you make the station static.And just run a bunch of wires to every home sign street light bill board and such. I’m male and we like to grunt and bang your chest when you built something different.
I will send in a update once I have installed my tower’s. If you have it already not sure on a how to make poles and what you need I will send in a how to just ask or if anyone else wants them I will send it in.
Al my second attempt to weathering. A steam boiler in a falling down shed. will be another part of my swamp scene. have more work to do on it. The part for the belt to drive something is a part off a cigarette lighter. This is the moss I mentioned on your site.
Bunch of tool’s made from scrap. Easy build’s to fill space
Huge thanks to Kim and Dave. I sometimes wonder whether I post too much of Dave’s stuff, but seeing as it always goes down so well, I guess not.
Please do keep ’em coming folks. And don’t forget, if you haven’t started your layout yet – or you’re just looking for inspiration – this’ll get you going.
