Challenging Things To Do

More complicated things to do: may require investigation or acquisition of new kit.

Establish a power bus for the MSC8 units (too many MSC8 are a highly capacitive load on the DCC booster and the power doesn't come back on after a track short).

Create a wall display board for the hidden track sections, so a human can drive a train and stop at hidden signals. This can break down into smaller jobs:

  1. Drill holes, varnish the box so it can attach to the wall
  2. Finish the artwork for the front panel
  3. Mount LEDs to the front panel
  4. Mammoth wiring session



Simple Things To Do

Look at the front bogie of the class 159, non driven end: it doesn't seem to detect on the "stop" sensor

Add uncoupling magnets to Portsmouth carriage sidings.

Make High Street buildings at at Petersfield

Ramp speeds into Eastleigh: this could be profiled better.

Ramp speeds into Clanfield.

Track cleaning train schedule. or schedule sequence.
