Following on the heels of my "Free FREDs..." project, I've now found a use for those flashing circuits found in promo rubber balls and other toys. Ala John Allen, I've designed a car that tests one's ability to couple cars without damaging the goods as well as throttle up or down smoothly and in prototype fashion. It is a great device to see just how well you or a friend handle a throttle, just how smooth a runner that new lokey is or a great way to introduce someone to the hobby in a fun and different way. The circuit used has an advantage that John Allen's car didn't. The light circuit has a timer built into it that keeps the lights flashing for 7-15 seconds, removing any doubt as to whether it was tripped or not. It also is very sensative and unforgiving. Instead of using a piece of N gauge track, this uses a variation of an old pinball machine tilt mechanism, easy to adjust, rugged and using no critical measurements save sizing it for the interior of the car carrying it. An alternative mechanism for N scale cars will be provided at the end. Beginning with the circuit removed from it's tomb, in this case a gell filled squish ball desparately in need of retirement.
