L&T Grade Crossing - Gets a Bell Sound Module...

Hi All,

Well I've now installed the ITT Products - HQ300 - 1 Bell Sound Module to the L&T Grade Crossing.

It was a fairly easy installation and I have managed to wire it into the existing circuit that ran the Circuitron Flasher Kit.  This means that the on/off button on the fascia now runs both the bell and crossing signals.

The idea is that it will be operated by the switch crew prior to crossing the intersection via a small relay box located on the ROW.  The crews will have to stop the train and turn the system on before proceeding to switch out the spur.

Here is the complete wiring circuit for the system...



The systems is located underneath the layout...



Clearly a little different to the wiring diagram in the flesh...

And here is a little YouTube video of the Grade Crossing in action.




Cheers,

Jas...
