O Scale Progress Summer-Fall 2008

During the Summer-Fall of 2008, the GSMRM O Scale group has continued with the scenery area between Midway and the Zenith yards. The base plaster work is ready for rock castings. A new siding for the oil refinery is being built. It will link the refinery to the Midway yard tracks. Plaster webbing and tunnel portals have been installed under the refinery.

Additional abrasive type track cleaning cars were custom built to improve our operations.

Work on the On3 scenery has also continue with most of the visible areas now plastered and some texturing and tree work completed. A new stamp mill was built and installed. Trains can now run on the Palisade division.

Work on the remote control of the Post Rd junction and Passenger yard from the Arrival control panel is operational. Route and block relay boards are installed at Post Rd and the Passenger yard and a sub panel was added to the Arrival panel to show and control train movements through the Post Rd, Passenger areas. Four remote video cameras can be used by the Arrival panel for viewing train movements from Post Rd to/from the Passenger yard. In addition, the Midway block 5 control was converted to allow remote operation from Arrival-Departure area.

The computer interface prototype (OSCI) has been moved to the layout and connected to the control bus linking Arrival, Midway, Post Rd and the Passenger Panels. Each of these areas has an OSCI interface board which connects to the OSCI bus and the various relay boards on the control panels.

The O scale public and member web sites have been updated. Take a look at http://www.gsmrm.org/o_scale/index.shtml or http://www.gsmrm.org/members/o_scale/.
