Dark, wet winter days: time to do some work towards finishing the HO Trix Express shelf layout.
Squeezed onto a shelf, the scenic section is just 45 x 8 inches (113 x 30 cms). The missing bit was a cassette system for returning and storing trains. I crafted this today to act as a prototype......a bit of Ikea shelf and some Trix Twin bakelite track. The cassette has to be double ended, so has power feeds on both sides. They are brass picture hanging pins with connecting wires soldered to the running rails. Then it is easy to clip on the mini crocs. It works!!
Now to refine and build more, one for each of 6 complete Trix Express trains.
