    An isolated lightning strike back in September detonated one of the 100' white pines next to my house, wreaking just all sorts of havoc (both external and internal) -



    What I just found out this week is that the strike fried the low voltage circuit board that controls my streetlights, thus sending them all off to dead electronics heaven. So, now I get to replace all 29 of them



    I don't know what I did to tick off the model railroading gods so badly, but it must've been a doozy!

    As mentioned here: https://www.nscale.net/forums/showth...039#post638039 I built the smallest version of a DCC-EX command station / programmer:



    I'll use that instead of buying a SPROG...

    I wired up a duck pond sound module. Took a little bit of time to figure out how I was going to run an accessory power bus, but it does sound nice - although almost a bit loud. I might need to stick some tape over the speaker...
    Oh, and it drives the cats crazy when it's running

    Edit: added a photo - just because the Mooseses appear to be hibernating, it's better not to provoke them....

    Speaking of electricity, I finally finished up this substation project that's been gathering dust on my workbench for a while (gotta make room for all those new streetlights, dontcha know) -





    The Woodland Scenics stuff is a shameless foob, but the rest of it is based on this facility near Elko, MN -
