Track Ground Activation

Brass Roller & PCB


The brass roller is pushed to the PCB with a spring.

  • Fred suggested to make a kind of pantograph which is easy to build and probably very suited for the job.


Software modifications

  • the Fiddle Yard object is listener of the 3 sensors; enter, pre2in and in.
  • dispatching events to the active block on the FY table.
  • Fiddle Yard block manager; only routes are needed from and to the Fiddle Yard, not all blocks.
