Looking really good, I like it.
Very nice. Like how you've done the tunnel.
Small update today!
Haven't done any scenery as it's too cold in the basement this time of year. It's not to cold to fix the random shorting happening at my 12 Peco turnouts that are on the main. Seems to be worse when the humidity is lower (less then 50%). Have got the nail polish applied as recommended in this thread. Hopefully it works as good for me as it has for others!
In this pic you can actually see the pitting caused by the repeated shorting, this turnout was one of the worst...
Yes I remember your posts. My turnouts are all code 100, so they are small, medium and large radius not numbered, but it seemed to happen on them all. Also I saw cars do it as well as loco's. The nail polish has worked like a charm though! I liked lemonhawk's suggestion of gluing on a small and very thin piece of styrene.....but I can't figure out how to sand such a small area down effectivelyI had the same problem with a Peco #8 turnout and a TRIX Br.187 locomotive. Apparently, the wheel tread is wider on these wheels than my other brands of locomotives and shorted at the frog every time. I first used gaffer's tape and then switched to the nail polish trick.
This doesn't happen on the #6 turnouts; I think it's because of the divergence angle.
Thanks Micheal! They are using an Axatrax controller and the signals are from Tomar. Here's a better video from when I first got them installed.... I desperately want to get the gates hooked up but the benchwork isn't exactly ideal below this area.The grade crossing signals look great. The flash rate and afterglow is perfect.
