HO Slot car train race
Automated RR/slotcar crossing Part 1
I'm finally making some progress on automating my slotcar/railroad crossing. Please keep in mind the gates will be hooked to slow motion actuators, so this accounts for the delay in the van starting up. It also is the reason why it stops way before the train comes. The photo sensors are tricky to place correctly, and a stable light source is critical for reliable operation. I still need to adjust their position a bit, but I can't until a few more parts are purchased to get the gates moving, Until I get them, I can't make any other adjustments. Thanks, Joe
