Installing a Remote Camera into a Locomotive, aka Train Cam

Categories: Electronics and Resources.

Train cam – a tiny camera mounted in a model locomotive allowing a ‘driver eye’ view of a model railway.
To see a model railway from the track level is great for shows and clubs. Possibilities are endless with a Train Cam. One can set up a Train simulator that runs the train on the model railway. This could be goods news for layouts with limited space for operators.

Here are some pictures of a miniature camera, as I described to the aus.rail.models newsgroup, as well as the Layout Design SIG.

The models used  were Lima models of a South Australian 930 class and were the first test model “cut up” in the interests of science!
