Kankool lever frame …
As described in the Layout Stats, all turnouts and signals at Kankool, Ardglen & Pangela will be operated from fully interlocked mechanical frames, as per the prototype.
The frames are being built by Dale Richards from McKenzies, and he has commenced construction of the Kankool frame. He has sent me some photos of the progress so far. Credit must go also to Tony Kociuba from McKenzies who had this frame on standby.
Kankool was a 20 lever frame. The model will be 315mm long, 260mm high & 170mm deep.
I hope to integrate the frames into the front valance of the layout at each location, possibly within a recessed area for protection.
I am really looking forward to getting the Kankool frame, even though it will be a while before it is actually operational.
Cheers for now.
