Seething Lane Updates
Currently the layout is undergoing final planning, and timber will be getting cut soon!
Not happy with the looks of reliability of Peco points, after coming across this document I decided to take a knife to my points. I wont go into detail as the link covers all that needs to be done very well, but to sum up I removed the plastic sleepering around the tiebar area (photo 1), and replaced these with single-sided copperclad strip (photo 2). The first two photographs show the before and after effect. I also added soldered links between the running and stock rails, taking away the reliance on the point blades for power conductivity, as per the third photograph. Time will tell if these modifications make a difference, but one paint and power are applied I will hopefully notice a difference.
