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
1987 Honda Civic CRX Si Blade Silver Stock
Blast from the past ! DejaVu. Bought a new Blue 1985 CRX DX Automatic and had it only 8 months. Last week picked up this rare Gen1 1987 CRX in exceptional condition. And now 27 years later finaly have another CRX, but this time it's an Si and 5 Speed like the first one back in 1985 shoulda been. Solid fondation to build on, but aways to go to get it how it should be, good as new. Let the wrenching begin !
