    That's a LOT of windows!! Please tell me you're going to use one sheet of "glass", and not individually cut/install each pane??

    Yeah... wow. That's pretty darn close. And for ten bucks a pretty good deal, too.

    Intermodalman so... what's your review on these hoppers? They look pretty good to my eye, but I don't see the prototype on the daily.

    Mentioning quilting on a long arm machine brought back memories of my grandmother hand-quilting in a frame. She spent endless hours in our living room by the picture window stitching some beautiful...

    I'm confused.

    It looks to me like grweldon is asking how to use a Digitrax booster (+ etc.) with an NCE system (command station and throttle) - i.e. build a club-compliant Digitrax booster box...

    It's a little bit hard to follow how you have it arranged from the text description. Can you provide a track diagram and a wiring diagram?

    My immediate thought would be to caution you against trying to make it be it everything for everyone.

    I'm not sure exactly how your modules are parsed out, but I like the idea of having a single...

    That makes sense. I think you're on a good track there. Maybe in the case of stopping in the middle of a District... you could just split that district into two sub-districts (electrically and...

    Impressive!

    If you speak as well as you write, don't be afraid to speak on your videos. You will be quite understandable. Even if you are more comfortable writing out and reading from a script.

    I'll second this. Besides, unless by "transformer" you mean "booster" or "command station", upgrading your transformer won't give you more amps at the rails. Since NCE doesn't sell a 10 amp...

    Your local government will probably require a permit and an inspection anyway if you're doing something as extensive as standing and wiring a new wall.

    On the bright side I've already figured out a workaround. I can leave the PCA chip off, hand-wire the 4 servo outputs directly to Arduino pins and use a different Servo library to control the servos...
