Here is the video of my half built sellers 60ft turntable. The stepper makes some weird noises due to its pulsed type drive. I will try and soft mount the motor in the future but even now is a lot quieter than a gear reduced conventional motor. Every thing is sought of held together with blue tack but all stayed together for this demo.
There is some scope for this set up to be used with multi track turntable setups. Obviously it just becomes a lot more complicated programming all the different moves.
FS BS Cars
Work still continues on the Austrains FS BS cars. I have installed the super capacitor onto the lighting PCB simply by drilling two small holes, sticking the cap through and then soldering the zener onto the other side. This holds it all together. I still have to add the wires connecting it all to the output of the bridge rectifier. The super capacitor sits very neatly up in the ceiling of the door way area.
I have added a little extra detail to the under floors and the coupler position has been fixed resulting in the working diaphragms, well working!
No progress. It’s been too wet and I am still waiting on more PVC sheeting for the back scenes.
That’s it for now,
