Layout Construction – Train Detection

The Gatport Airwick diorama features three, four aspect signals which will control the exit from the station platforms. These signals are going to be automated using the train detection system by Heathcote Electronics.


The three modules are product code MAS-SEQUENCER-RI-EW which automatically changes the signal aspects over a period of time following the passage of a train over the infra red detection equipment placed between the tracks. The signal changes to red once the infra red equipment detects a train, then after a period of time the signal aspect changes to single yellow, then double yellow, then green.
