There's a review of working boards in the December RM. They're for 00, unfortunately, but the article suggests they could be used as big station concourse display in N.

Those are the departure boards by Train Tech. Nice gimmick but not quite what I'm looking for. I'm not even sure if there are such tiny panels yet :D

And now for something completely different:

Today I was able to fix a very annoying problem... the HST finally has marker lights fitted :bounce:

Good Morning,

you are moving in such amazing spheres of detail... I wish I could say anything else but great work :) Or... maybe I can...  ::) I don't think this will lead to any positive result but for a house that didn't make it on my layout (was too big in the end) I once made some lighted signs for the shops. I used overhead projection sheets and printed the sign inversely: It looked quite good setting the right intensity of light.

Well, now, I just thought about a two layer technique as version 2.0 that could work for your problem, too:
- layer one would be the printed overhead projection sheet
- layer two the woodland scenics light diffusing film.
I dont know if it would get too thick but with a nano led behind the two sheets it could be worth a thought...? If it's not good enough for the purpose you need - at least it could be for my shop signs :)

Have a nice week and cheers, Mark

 :hellosign:

Last weekend I decided to solve the "Cyclops" problem with the Dapol HST once and for all.



The first attempt was promising but I went a step further. Now the lights can be switched on and off separately, so we have...

Day Mode


Night Mode


Driver and cablight (it's not actually that bright, sorry)


Cheers!

Seems like there's no problem you can't solve? Like you wrote the cablight seems a bit too bright, but... and I guess it's a silly question: My eye thinks that the cablight in warm or yellow white does not seem to fit to the coach light in cold white... But it's my fault, is it? :) And now, my redundant "great work" :)
