WCR to get Signalling System

Published by Admin at 5:01 PM under Signalling System

 

Winter Creek is to get a proper signalling system. Ive been planning and scheming for the past three months while bones healed and I couldn't do much else.

 

Here is a sneak preview of the control panel - running under JRMI/CATS. Its as easy as point and click to set a route, with the signals and points moving to match, provided it is safe to do so.

 

JRMI is an opensource Train Control package for Model Railway use, and I am adapting it to a slightly higher standard of safety given we carry real passengers. You can learn more about it here

CATS is also a Java application that builds on JRMI to provide a good toolset for a more modern panel configuration - closer to what I work with in my day job. You can learn more here

Sorry there have been no updates for awhile. Been busy with work, and you know what they say about all work and no play!

Stay tuned.

Tunnel Construction Photo Gallery

Published by Admin at 3:55 PM under Track Construction

Here is a series of photos showing construction methods for the tunnel. It was built by myself in 2005 for the original 7.25" only line, and marks the spot where the new dual guage line meets the original alignment through the tunnel, around horseshoe curve known as South Bend and across bridge 4.
