Detection of points
Detection of A end of points.
To say this has been simple. Straight forwards! Was not a problem at all! Well not quite. This has been challenging to the last nut and bolt. With several rethinks and a lot of tea drinking. Still it’s in and meets with the specifications that must be achieved. It requires to be Electrically wired up yet, as well as the electrical interlocking within the signal box still to do.
Making progress! All four bolts out, now to have a good look at the insides.
Before mounting the detector, the drop lugs on the switches had to be turned and a good alignment achieved. This is to know were the detector is to be placed. Yes it goes between the sleepers! but it all needs to line up. If there is any rubbing or it is not square it will make the points harder for the signaller to pull.
