@dileTTante: You can try the sounds in the app for free. 7 or more horns with different length, coupler sound (yeah!!!), whistles, steam whistle and door closing sound.
I can use my Multimaus for the loco, my laptop PC for the turnouts and another tablet for the sounds. This would be the first guiTTar case layout good for 3 ttnuts at the same time :lol: Could be a little bit crowded, though :think:

@MacG: Thanks for the link!

Bjoern,
What kind of servos are you using and where did you get them from? Also is any shop selling Team Digital products in the Lower Mainland?

I've got my servos and decoder from Litchfield Station in Arizona. The decoder is on sale right now.

The good thing about this decoder is, you can also control the servos 'analog' without DCC!

In Vancouver --
Central Hobbies sell sets of ANE decoder and servos.
The servos are also available from Lee's Electronics on Main St. about $12(CDN) each.

Another question regarding how you installed the electronics: since everything is installed very tightly in the foam, did you ever have issues with the decoder or the servos overheating?

Tibi, the servos are turned on and off only for the job. This is a built-in feature of the decoder. With my z21 the decoder runs on almost 18 Volts. It gets warm but not too hot. Overheating is no problem so far.

Hello all,

I remember some guys were noting that the layout was lacking some TT scale "humans"!
That has changed. There is some life now, where no life has been before.
