“Hi my name is Herb from Melbourne Australia miss receiving your emails, so i will send a couple of pictures of my layout. Not much too talk about,& i don’t model any spefic era as my son is austic.
But we get out there & have a great deal of fun & father son bonding time & i believe that’s what’s life is all about. Plus we get out from under my wife’s feet well that’s all for now.
From Herb & Rick in the land down under.”
This picture shows a dismantled L E D christmas light from a multi coloured string. When a string of L E D christmas lights stop working don’t throw it away dismantle it and use the L E Ds in train sets, even if you buy a string of 70 multi coloured lights you will have many different coloured L E Ds for your hobbies sets you just need to figure out what resistance you need to use as they can be used on AC/DC, I have replaced the headlights on some of the Diesel engines sure nice & bright, I have also converted the lighting in some of the passenger cars but you also need to make a reversing bridge to reverse + & – without losing the lights. also different colours use different resistance, and some are assembled a little differently so you just need to experintment.
Just a little progress video of my small N-scale layout.
Still waiting for those factory views.
I real mixed bag today – but enjoyed them all. Just goes to show, you don’t have to have a finished layout to enjoy ’em.
And if you want to get started, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
That’s all this time folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
