In February 2007 we introduced a new product to our portfolio: a remote control system for points in sidings and depots, though not for main line use.
Quite by chance the demonstration model of our system was being shown to interested members of the railway restorations groups during April and some of the NSMEE model engineers saw this. Two weeks later we were asked if it would be possible to control the points and signals of the extension to their 7 1/4” railway.
The Nottingham Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (NSMEE) is based in the Nottingham Transport Heritage Centre (NTHC) at Ruddington, five miles south of the city on the A60 to Loughborough.
On Saturday June 2nd 2007 the first part of the control was commissioned. Two points and four signals were under remote control. The intention at present is that this part of the railway is only to be operated on the ‘one engine in steam’ principle although with our control system more than one train could be operated safely, drivers having their own remote control handset, as our full size system permits.
