Faller Car System #1 – Insetting magnetic tape
While I’m waiting for the glue to dry on the cement kiln preheater project I have started creating the Faller Car System road.
Rather than setting wire into the road for the vehicles to follow, I am using magnetic tape instead. The advantage is that the steering arm doesn’t touch have to touch the road surface.
The magnetic tape is 3mm wide and 1mm deep so the road pieces are made from two thicknesses of 1mm thick card laminated together. The top layer is cut with a gap in it for the tape.
The first straight piece is going to fit across the road bridge over Greenwater River.
