Building A Modular Model Railway – Episode Six: The Folding Fiddle Yard!
After the excitement of the previous episode where I laid the track on the two new station modules, this video takes a step back and ties up a few loose ends. Some of you guys have pointed out things that I’ve glossed over in previous videos that you would like to see in a bit more detail and so in this episode I give you a proper look at the fiddle yard and also explain how I did the wiring for the modular model railway. Specifically a lot of you wanted to know how I’m transferring the power between the modules so this episode features an entire section on that too.
Finally to finish it all off there’s a little bit of troubleshooting to do on the station module as one of my engines keeps stalling on the points. Is it an issue with the loco or is there a problem with how the track is laid and will I be able to get trains running smoothly again? You’ll have to watch to the end of the video to find out!
