APA Christmas

Postby Voyager » Mon Dec 23, 2013 11:23 pm

Was out dealing with some errands in the wet and murk first thing this morning, which happened to be pre-Christmas wheelie bin day in our part of town. Stood next to a bin I passed was a discarded but intact APA. Suffice to say it is I rather one of our bin men who will now be building an APA module!

Before I start very grateful if a more experienced APA-ist could please remind me of the conventions regarding the positioning and dimensions of the mouseholes (for UK Gn15 use).

Many thanks in advance, and Season's Greetings to all.
Regards to all,

any position at the ends. Height above base is only thing, 50mm or thickness of standard styrofoam insulation. Maybe you will be lucky and find some discarded in a skip.
Need some means of wiring between boxes. I use Hifi stereo sprung speaker connectors, others use chocolate block connectors, just remember which wire goes to which rail.
Links between boxes are short lengths of track.
Almost forgot, boxes are on their sides, giving more height but less track space.
