4 days building this Working model.

Got other hobbies apart from Classic cars? Then you can share them here.
I like a bit of a build :D

This is a fabulous thing, got it for Christmas. Spent 40 hours plus on the build
It's got 6 elevator exits points and 9 elevator entries 70 metres of track.

1 ball bearing covers The whole course. Has vertical drops, taper spirals, see saw and lots more.

The Pringles are an extra support, the beer is a celebration of the first full circuit without a problem.

It's brilliant, already working on how to make it run all,day. It's battery powered presently but that won't last, just paid a tenner for 4 C batteries at the village shop :shock:

Train set transformer, with 6v take off?

Presuming your 4 cells are in series.

Would have said solar panel but that wouldn't work at all today if your weather is like mine.

Hi Sean

The 2 elevators have only one c cell each and are independent (cheap to make) I bought 4 so would have extras as the missis has a friend visiting tonight that's into engineering and will want to play :D. It's known in the village that my missis has a mate who is lesbian so it is sure to make the village gossip because I explained when asked, that I needed 4 x c cells because my wife's mate was visiting :D ( in this village they still ask what your batteries are for, I kid you not) well, it's a laff innit :lol:

I've got a proper DC power supply variable from 0 to 24 volt and upto 4 amp so this will be powering it in the future.
