Maurits, I assume you have pre programmed routes and all runs automatically?

Very impressed by the way it is progressing.

Apart from the excellent quality of the work, the rate at which everything has gone up/down is impressive!

 :smiley-laughing:well I think a few more mr. G.

thanks all for the nice comments, I have done my best to avoid all the mistakes from Highbury fields and it looks so far great.  Building the fiddle yard was after all not such a great job, most of the track is straight on.

Haven't test the fiddle yard with a full occupation, my never used Brighton B kept derailing ( the 4th carriage ) so have swept  a few around and seems to be al-right now, but costed some time to get this sorted. Also learning the computer the correct speed per decoder step is costing quit some time.

The program I am using uses 2 sections for learning speed per decoder step , you need to tell exactly how much mm is between de 2 sections and then the computer measures how much time it takes to leave one section and to enter the next one.  This is done completely controlled by the software for each step so you can imaging that it takes a while to do 28 steps. benefit is that my trains are running exactly at scale speed.

There's one more point which can do with 2 extra droppers which I will do this week and then to the next fase ;)
