so I do!

How fast should the tram run? In which scale?

For H0 this is proportional to about 375 km/h! :?

Hi Dagnall,

Thanks!
I've used this method myself, but somehow I forgot it when I've asked.

Cheers,

but my garden rail is G gauge, so 1/32, or 1/20 depending on what I am "modelling" so about 140 or 90 km/h , so the response time should be just about ok..
Thanks for making me look at this.. ! I should have done that calculation before! :beer:

Never mind, i'am sure, - after having some beers - wouldn't feel very comfortable in a garden where a G-Lok comes suddenly with 1,2 m/s round the corner... :D

Quick update, I double checked the loop time with SPI clock at 10MHz, by setting / resetting an output and using an oscilloscope, and I now think it's nearer 12ms ! So perhaps a fast train might be possible!
But no beers for the driver at that speed! :lol:
Still some bugs to sort out in the code, but it's getting more reliable.
