Ian,
2 hours later I received an email saying they have problems with my approval, its a by law they have not told me or that I was aware of when I had an informal meeting with them several month ago.

it is about the construction being in front of the residence, (as the current garage is level with the residence), also the construction (garage) doesn't consist of bricks like the house does. the plot is big enough to allow another building to be constructed, so the building surveyor is coming tomorrow morning to find a solution or another option. the whole area has a new zoning: R 20 and this may help as well. my son being a Town planer (from a different district) will be there tomorrow as well and it may have to go to a full council meeting to be approved, we don't have quarrels with neighbours nor did they object to the extension, this is if we have to go along this path will cancel out any advertising and will shorten the approval time if there is no other option available.
there are other buildings (residences) in the neighbourhood which are closer to the road than we are including the extension and we can put an argument forward we are well within the boundary of similar properties.

So more news tomorrow.

John

Ian, I've been consulted by the local council and it has to go now before a full council meeting to get a building approval. the only thing we can do now is get the consent from immediate neighbours (which we have verbally), change the plot plans and include landscaping, take photos from surrounding residences and outbuildings and mark their location within certain boundaries. it will than go the planning department and they will assess the application again and either recommend or refuse the application as a whole.
the issue is, the proposed extension of the garage is set in front of the house frontage not like the existing garage which is in line with the house frontage but when I've approached the council 4 or 5 month ago nothing was mentioned about this by-law. anyhow it will just take more time and more money. another option is open to us, brick cladding or a brick wall for the exterior of the garage (front and side).
The person handling my application is a casual surveyor employed by the council and he wasn't aware of the by law until is senior officer had been presented with the plan, hence the approval and refusal afterwards.
suppose it is like until you've got the money in the bank (cheque is in the mail), your house title in your hand (sorry we can't find the titel for your house) and the approval document of the garage extension it is all wishful thinking

I've started installing my reflective optocoupler and I'm pleased with the installation, to avoid drilling a big hole I've rounded the corners of and this enables me to use a smaller drill. the other good outcome is I have different depth , some have 5mm cork on top of the board, some tracks are laid straight onto the board (16mm) and some I've used a thinner board all I have to do is remove some of the 4 pin connectors.

some of the switching tracks I will remover where I can others will stay there and I've already got some secondary use for them, if they don't switch or return to neutral it will not cause any problems, all they will do is turn on and off Station platform lights.
hopefully tomorrow I can start with the wiring and see if they all work as I intended them to work, well put it this way, they've worked when I've tested them.
all in all, they should activate the braking module, the fade in and out signal modules and the ESU micro servo motors which are connected to the Switch pilot module and from there they are controlled via the reflective opto coupler and an ordinary opto coupler.

My son has nearly finished the city with all its lights, I have to do a few more soldering jobs for the Faller car system so it shouldn't be long and things will get finished.
it always amazes me when asked how many trees are on the city module and by guessing it I was half way there the same goes with the double arm street lights we've used so far 40 of them and another 5 or 6 are needed. In future I like to change all the light bulbs for the houses with led towers

Hi, I've added some pictures and one can follow how I've secured the different modules onto a wooden plank, the positive side of it is in the back whereas I can connect all wires coming to these modules instead of feeding them from the back onto the front modules, it just eliminates some of the many wires floating around the front. this time around each wire will have a tag so any changes or fault finding exercise will be easier.

the second picture shows the back side, included is: ESU Switch pilot servo module coupled or wired together with an opto coupler to be able to operate 5 volt DC and 16
volt DC attached are also the ESU micro servo motors for turnouts, since than I've added more connectors to the board, so each circuit or coulor coding wire is catered for.

I know its a boring subject because it is not by Märklin but on the same point of view, do you think we'll ever get a slim double switch C-turnout, suppose a CS 3 (+) is more important.

an enjoyable walk on a Sunday afternoon, watching kids playing in the park, shoppers buying fresh fruit and vegies, the odd couple and a relaxing time in the beer garden.

its been many month and the city is getting finally its last touches, my son has done an exceptional job and his work has paid off, there have been a lot of changes, most of the houses have been re-located, new buildings bought, more home made tress added, some 40 Streetlights installed and also 10 yard station lights, more people and a Faller car system has a new life.

as you've all notice4d we are installing street and railway yards light, so far 50 streetlights have been installed and we in the process of installing another 20 railway yard lights (10 have been fitted so far), another 50 or 60 railway yard lights will be added and most probably another 40 Streetlights.

We will again present our garage plans to the local authority and see what is going to to happen this time, there are similar or almost the same structures been build not far from us, a matter of fact one across the road from us, another one about 50 meters up the road and they have been approved, instead of changing the out dated by law the council is happy to charge people the extra cost to apply for a building approval.

I don't think we will hear from them until late next month.

Hi,
Having trouble with my computer lately, trying to install windows 10, got professional help online but they are unsuccessful to download the latest version windows 10,(it has now been 3 days) so it has taken most of my time through the day to be there and this has hindered me to install my modules on the my layout. the anticipation will it or wont it work (windows 10) has left me in the afternoon exhausted but will try again tonight and see how far I'll get, have installed it now 3 times on the layout and realizing afterwards, I didn't connect all the wires on the breadboard and secondly by the second time I've noticed one of the electronic gadget came loose, so had to undo all the wiring again and solder it back on again, this time I will test it before I'll srcew it back on again to prevent the same thing happening again, undoing the wires and removing the board.

I hope I'll have some good news tomorrow.

Ian, it has had another turn, more plans, property title, which isn't a problem but just more time waste. we need now a site plan (1:500) but not from an arial photo, than it will be presented to the council again, one of the planning officer said to me after meeting him at his office, he knows me very well (?) and I said to him how come you know me well but rejected the application and refunded me the money again we've paid for the application instead of either phoning me or sending me an email and expresssing the 2 missing items, it was done in a haste he said. they wiggle their way around and always have answers for everything, suppose this is the pleasure working in a council environment.

this is, I must say, is a miracle but when one exames the chemical properties of each solution in question, one has to admit water is lighter and therefore easier to dissapear, where as snow is a hard substance made out of many molecules and when frozen takes years and some times miliion of years to dissapear and a good example is glaziers.

Moosburg in its old days was exactly this, an old glazier and for sure it was reduced in size but it has more or less kept its form.

we had however for a long time now given Moosburg and its snow covered mountains a daily blessing and asking the gods not to be fooled and stay cool and cold, we've picked this up from Nepals's sherper worshippers and the Goddess Kumari

I hope this answers your question and it was indeed a very interesting question.

Hi, a new building application will go to the local council next week, this time I will make sure the proper person will check all my documents before I leave the office, one officer claimed he knows me very well but failed to contact me by phone or email to point out the discrepancies about my previous application, anyhow we are pursuing it in the most efficient method to get this application through and get the approval for the extended garage proposal.

Hi John,
Somehow you created that effect rather well. Good photography, and all the other scenes look like Europe, too, which is the intention obviously.

Hi everyone,

I know I've mentioned it several times, our garage is getting extended and it has so far taken almost 9 month to get any where with it.; this time i can reveal there is a council meeting early next week, the building department is supporting our plans and have submitted it to be approved.

when and if we get the approval which should take place on the day of the meeting it will take us while to start work on it as we are in our winter season which most probably take another month.
in October we will be off on a holiday for 14 days so we may commence after we return.

what was a simple garage extension has taken the council internal departments to change their minds and advices several times, cancelling my application, renewing my application and what normally should only take 60 days maximum has now stretched out to 90 days.

I'm very hopeful this time ever thing will go ahead. for some of you who haven't been following my intentions, the layout when finished will have a total length of 13m by a width of 5m., at the moment it is 9m x 5m, all the remaining modules are finished except alterations and improvements have to be carried out, the last module (20th) (HOe) will have to be designed from scratch and will have again a mountain scene.
We are also concerned with the lack of rolling stock and locos to be stationed on the layout and we may have to build another module to be able to store them and exchange the trains on occasions, similar to a hidden fiddle yard.

Ok, I'll make it perfect the next time, its slightly different scenario, 1 loco is from Roco the other from HAG, both locos are powered from the overhead.

Hi everyone, it is now official, I have received the planning and building approval so the start of the extension can proceed which will take place in November - December, as we are going on holidays in October.

it has now taken over 8 month to get this far but I'm thrilled it is all over, there will be further building extensions or alterations but these alterations will not take place until the extended garage and the extended layout is finished, it will give us more room on one side of the garage (1.2m) and this will be achieved by taking a garage wall out and erect another wall 1.2m away, the length will be approx. 4m.

at the moment there is a distance of approx. 800mm of clearance between the interior garage wall and the layout, adding another 1.2m I may extend the layout on one side and add more tracks to accommodate more trains [passenger (new station) and freight terminal].

John

Hi John,

Fantastic layout you have built. Very inspirational.

Did you happen to have posted your track plan somewhere?

Regards,

Mike
