I have started on the next section of my layout called "Jørnebanen".

I have made the controls for Faller cars, but because I'm so stingy, I make all the expensive stop-solenoids and switches from scrap parts instead.

See how here: www.jornebanen.dk/default_eng.asp?page=opbygningen/opbygningen_eng.asp?pic=43

This is also a nice example of the advantages of building in sections!

Hello Jorgen, I think that's super that you can make your own. I consider myself very good at wiring but I would not be able to do that. Bravo! Cheers, PeterSmile

It's not that complicated Petestra!
This is what this forum is about; sharing ideas.
If you have limitless amounts of money, then it's probably easier to just by all the original stuff, but if you, like me, has only a limited amount of money and wants to use as many of them buying trains as possible, then you must go for the cheaper solutions.

Please also see here how I make the stop-solenoids:
http://www.jornebanen.dk/default_eng.asp?page=/Teknik/faller%20stop/faller_stop_eng.htm

Also see how I use reed switches:

I need to do somethimg else now, so I have started to build tracks on the remaining part of the layout to get rid of the last building materials which have filled up to room. More about that later...

The whole winter is spend with building a new bathroom, but now it's about to be over, so I now have started section 1:3.
Section 1:3 is the center of the town and will have a square with restaurants, hotels and entertainment.
A large station building would be nice, but would block the view of the square behind,
therefore I have chosen to create an underground station hall.

Each station must also have a model railway, so I have created a model of a model railway!

Peter,

Did you put DM's into each transformer????

When I would have a layover at Rhein Mein AB, several of us would take the train downtown and naturally, I would feed the model railroad display. What amazed me was where did all those kids come from when all the trains were in operation.

We would then walk accross the Mein River to the resturants and bars. I cannot remember what that section was called, can you??

Hi Robert, yes those were DMs I would feed into the layouts. The area across the the river with the bars and restaurants is Sachsenhausen and is famous for its Apfelwoi (apple wine) which is not my cup-of-tea (I'd rather have a good german bier or the hard stuff!). Anyway I have been there a couple of times and the restaurants are quite good too (although I never really had a bad meal in any German restaurant). I remember a Trix-Express layout but I cannot recall if it was in Frankfurt or Munich, two cities I've been to many times. I always remember seeing a-lot of US military around too. Maybe one was you! Cheers,PeterThumpUp

Jorgen,

The model railway inside your station area is just amazing ! It is so realistic !
I share your interest of the IC555 electronic chip and some of its applications.
Did you see my report on the "Randomised Router" using the IC555 ?

Yes - I have made something similar, just for Faller cars (see my home-page).
It controlls wether a car parks at a parking lot or continues.

Jorgen, truely wonderful pictures of your layout.I love some of the ideas you have used to create different surfaces and i will certainly use some of them on my layout.
Technically you have much greater knowledge than i have, but great credit to you on how you have built things both electrically and with the model building,and people like myself can only learn from things you do, as i do from other forum members on this website, and the work they do
Well done Jorgen

I'm glad you like it. I hope you can use it. All I know about model building comes from reading about other model builders here, so it's only fair that I give some of all that back.
