Railways & other things




One little job I had to complete on 121 was to ensure that I could recharge the speaker. It has a mini USB port but the access to it is limited because some revellers are close to the entry path. I managed it by stripping the rubber insulation off a usb charging cable and then using heat shrink to reduce the overall envelope of the cable plug.

The lady may have lost a leg in the process but she seems a bit too engrossed to notice…

I also wired in the socket for the lights. This sits under the vac pipe at the top end and I’ve made the power lead look like connected vac pipes.

121 is now complete. Just need to finish 59 in time for the consist’s debut on Bron Hebog at Narrow Gauge East.
