Quite complex. Is he using pre existing parts (like from Tillig) or is everything hand made?

Everything is handmade, no commercial parts, except the rails. The sleepers are laser cut parts.

G&D TT CP1


I made the control panel for the narrow gauge line:

It is not wired yet, because I have to replace few switches with a different ones. ( right now all are ON-OFF-ON).
Next week I should get the correct ones.

There is DB25 connector - like the LPT connector on older PCs. Some of the tracks are controlled/switched directly, most of them over a small relay interface card, and the whole thing can be switched between manual control - every device individually - or in auto mode with a small RISC processor (AVR) what controls the train between two points including the zig-zag and its switches. In auto mode the individual controls are dissabled.

The turntable is growing. The origin is in Usak, Turkey.

:-)

The model is from etched brass L profiles.

Some progress on the turntable. The wheels are not fixed yet, they will be adjusted in the pit.
