New Idea – New Shop!
Recently I got back in to Model Railways – and head first in to the world of DCC.
Coming from a programming back ground, DCC really interested me, and the possibilities it opened up.
My first project was with a turn table – on this forum page… DCC Controlled (PECO) Turntable Project using a Arduino Uno
It was about a friend Ray and his quest to run his turntable using DCC control… The thread was well established by the time i came along.
I wanted to build the same for my railway, so I set about experimenting and following the thread. As i progressed I built my own DCC Interface on a breadboard from my new friend Kevin’s page – Building a DCC Monitor with an Arduino and once it was working, I searched the internet for a pre-made DCC Interface as the breadboard was quite delicate – there were various examples using strip boards, but no professional ones…
So i built my own. I designed the PCB and had a few made from a Company called Aisler – These guys are great and they helped me so much.
And so I had an idea…..
If i wanted one, perhaps other people did too, and maybe i can make and sell them.
And so that is what i did………
