Model railroading is a great hobby that allows you to create miniature worlds that are both fun and educational. But if you’re looking to add a touch of realism to your layout, why not try building your own Arduino traffic light controller?Continue reading Build Your Own Arduino-Powered Model Railroad Traffic Light System
I installed the track in the Walthers Cornerstone modern diesel house… it was a little tricky. Watch the video for the full scoop.Continue reading Build It: Adding track to the diesel house
Expanded my previous circuit with the DFPlayer Mini to now activate an arduino servo from 0 – 180 degrees while playing an audio file of a garage door. When pressed again, the servo reverts back from 180 – 0 and again plays the audio file. Six of these will be used to control the bay doors on the Walthers diesel house.
I’m trying to keep the momentum going with my new Build It series. Today I completed the painting of the primary parts for the interior of the Walthers Modern Diesel House. I completed the elevated platform and track supports. See the video and exclusive photos inside. Continue reading Build It: Walthers Modern Diesel House 2 – Platform and Track Supports Assembly
I decided to create a new YouTube channel as a companion for this blog. As I build my layout I will attempt to capture each step of the process for others to see what I’ve done. I hope to cover each building, scenery, DCC, benchwork, etc and other related topics. Click thru to watch the first video.
