A spot of sunbathing, not too far from the crepes stand (which may be getting some more jaunty colours!)



In Germany, by law (the Bundesmodelleisenbahnausgestaltungsregelungsgesetz), all model railway layouts must feature one or more of the following:
  • nude sunbathers
  • the workplace of ladies of negotiable virtue
  • a burning tax office

I wonder if the same applies to Swiss layouts?  :hmmm:
Takahachikawa - Japanese and other trains

Birmingham Knotmore Street - (ex) GWR mainline through the Midlands

... COB LEDs or "Chip On Board", where individual LED chips can be packed onto a common substrate in a multitude of different arrangements.  I'm hoping these long thin types may be something that could represent a large strip light for under a canopy. On the other hand they may be way too large or bright. We shall see, it's worth experimenting .....!



Not arrived yet, but having read up a bit more about them it sounds like they are typically something like 28 tiny LEDs wired in series. If that's the case then they would need 80-90V to energize them so maybe won't be of any use for our purposes.  Don't think my bench power supply goes that high  :D

On the other hand the solar powered thing I saw at the garden centre can't be running at high voltage. Let's see when they turn up...

[edit] Just checked, the ones I ordered are 3V apparently so we should be ok. Maybe teh ones I read about are specifically for mains powered bulbs.
Specification:
Color: As Picture
Material: Alloy
Size: 26mm
Voltage : 3V 50MA
Package Includes:10Pcs

Very cool Nick, keep me posted!

Maybe your local garden centre is secretly stockpiling Kyber Crystals? :D

@Globibahn did you see my recent post on the "latest purchase Continental" thread, my old 2-motor Minitrix E03?  Is it older than you are ?  :D  Now that's what I call a "heritage" loco!

Your motorbike is great Matt. At normal viewing distance I bet it looks equally as good as the Noch ones that I bought and it must be particularly satisfying to know that it's all your own work.

Hi John, yes very pleased with the motorbike outcome, thanks for spurring me on to complete it! :beers:
