    Train Tracking with RFID

    Add a super capacitor then have a section of unpowered track either side of the slow zone. Or install a prox detector the program looks for to slow the train.

    Train Tracking with RFID

    What about a "speed restriction" through your section of track? You could put a Slow order flag by the track to explain it then wire that section of track separately with a resistor in line so that you don't have to physically slow the train. Also in reading I saw issues with DC interference... Shielding the wires may solve some of this noise. (foil tape hooked to ground) The thing to remember even about the active reader is they can't read if it's moving too fast as well (although they have a better read time)

    This really moves like I pictured a rail bus would the shaking with the uneven track was great! The video was really well composed. Overall this is a favorite of mine!

    [MOC] Laura's Narrow-Gauge Rolling Stock Roster

    JLaura... I love these nL gauge models lol! I think if you used the small drivers (that most use for leading and trailing trucks) with an Axel and a bushing with a rubber band a lever arm connected to a gear set on a M motor you may be able to hide it all. I would use a 9v battery. And instead of remote just make it a on off switch. Simply stop the train with your hand and turn off.
  10. I know this is an older post but I never saw this method dug into... I'm the older style magnets (where the magnet clips into a holder) would mounting the magnet rotated 90 so that it pivots up and down with only the magnet side to side thus limiting the degree of push the coupling can enact?
  11. This came together well really well done! I love all the working drawings of the real thing. Side by side you would almost assume they were made for the brick tram not the real thing lol

    @supertruper1988 So here is the switcher as stands. The colors are to blend with the PF Batt box as I won't have time to wrap it. I just don't think the PF truck looks right lol

    I'm keeping to the standard "legoesk" look even though all rolling stock, switcher and switch tower are moc's. 7w is the max I want to go ... I will try to grab a snapshot of what I have so far tomorrow
