Standish Hall

Standish Hall is an experimental project of a battery electric diesel outline locomotive with forward facing RADAR.

Built on an IP engineering Delux chassis with an  Arduino Nano providing RADAR and motor control in automatic mode, the  loco also has full radio control for speed and forward / reverse.

The track is scanned up to 300mm ahead for stationary or slow moving objects and the controller will either adjusts the loco's speed accordingly or bring the loco to a complete stop.

Automatic mode can be selected from the R/C transmitter with automatic mode being the default if the transmitter is switched off.

Design and construction of Standish Hall


Now fitted with 3D printed con rods as the original HIPS rods, which were supplied with the chassis kit, were prone to breaking when the loco was handled.
