Zity Edge Image: Day or Night

Another set of images from Zity Edge Layout. The same scene in daylight and night showing the effect using adresseable LED's to light the different buildings.

Both levels of the layout shown in this images.

Zity Edge Image: Zity Moving & Storage

 

Zity Moving & Storage Company.

 

Zity Moving & Storage Company is one of the industries on Zity Edge. The building is based on the Ztrack REA Transfer Warehouse kit by Archistories.

The Fuller Paint building is created from a photo, glued on a foam base.

All lights are adresseable LED's, run by an Arduino Microcontroller.

All engines and boxcars are from AZL.

Panorama view of Zity Edge Layout

There have been a great progress the last months on the layout.

Many buildings have been added and they are all now equipped with LED-light, all adresseable and run by an Arduino Mega.

Here a panorama overview of the Zity Edge Layout, both in daylight and by night.

Roads created using Raster Images

 

The roads on ZIty Edge Layout are created using raster images and PhotoShop. Check out the description in this article.

Adresseable LED's for lights and animations

Check out the new article about using adresseable LED's on the layout, including some Arduino coding you can use:

Images from Zity Edge

3 different images from Zity Edge Layout, showing some progress. A few homemade trees are installed around the churdch. The cars need paint. Still a lot to do.

Cityline comes to live with lights

The Zity Edge downtown cityline starts to come to live with internal lights in the buildings.

Hundreds of windows are cut out on the facade and glazing are inserted.

54 adresseable WS2812 LED's in the current line, with various colortemperature in the different rooms, including the warning beacons and flashing light on top of the roof. All run by an arduino using the FastLED and MobaLedlib libraries.

The floodlight of the church are installed. More details on the landscape will be installed later.

Video #4 from Zity Edge Layout

2 trains with 4 and 2 engines running on High Line on Zity Edge. Still a lot to do on the buildings and the environment, but the trains are running.

Check out the short testvideo #4 from Zity Edge Layout.

Updated JMRI Switchpanel

An updated version of the JMRI Switchpanel for Zity Edge RR is ready:

Buttons to set all turnouts for the different routes are included on the panel. The "reset" button set all the turnouts in correct position. It's also run at startup of JMRI.

Video #3 from Zity Edge Layout

The first complete testrun on Zity Edge Layout

Finally, I have installed all tracks and the High Line bridge, so I could do a complete testrun.

I took the layout out of the closet and moved it on the table in the livingroom, so I could install and clean all tracks.

Check out the short testvideo #3 from Zity Edge Layout.

Photo from streettrack

A few photos showing the effect of the printed streets and the track in the middle of the road. Engine and car are AZL.

All images are taken with my Nikon D7500, 100ASA, AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4 G, using Helicon Remote and Helicon Focus, stacking 8-11 shots for each image, to give a good as possible depth of field. 1-4 sec exposuretime.

The only buildings that are plastic kit are the 2 Kibri factories in the front. All other are printed on paper and glued on a 3 mm foambase.
