Justice City Diorama, Back to work
« on: September 22, 2017, 12:58:28 PM »
It's been a while since I did any useful modelling on my Diorama. It's a diorama, not a layout, that is rather large with no plans to make it an operation layout. I get too bored looking a trains go from one point to another so I rarely actually run any trains. What I am trying to do is be practical by creating something that I can handle in the next 10 years before I am moved into an old folks home. Also, the diorama will be something I can easily move if I need to downsize or an asset that my kids can easily toss out after I leave. In any case I will continue to do detail work on it until it is over detailed.

If you feel so inclined you can see everything at the YouTube channel,

I got frustrated with the NCE control panel for my small diorama. It seems that when the hand controller is removed the power is still on to the track. Under normal situations this is desirable, it is not for me in my simple small diorama. I show how to add a power switch to the panel.

It's time to investigate "new" technology for controlling the lights in the structures in the Justice City Diorama. NCE has come out with a new piece of kit, the "Illuminator"! I bought one to see how it would fit into the diorama.

Adding the DCC power switch to the NCE panel was such a great idea, I decided to add the 12DC lighting switch to the same panel.

Marty,

I just got caught up on the thread. Great videos on what you are doing.  Looks like you got it all under control. Appreciate you taking the time up upload and share the videos with the forum.

Thanks for dropping by Tom and Thom. I've been in a modelling funk for a while and it is good to get back into it. I'm re-starting with the mundane tasks hoping to get into some heavy detailed modelling of an engine shed.
