      Job done.
      And worth the effort. I'm a lot happier with this one.

      I was uploading pictures last night and thought your boy might like to see these...

      If not give you some inspiration....





      I'm pretty sure it is at the Zig Zag Railway and they have a Thomas day once a year.

      I know my kids loved it the day I took these pictures.

      Wow. Is that James before his red paint job in the first picture? I think he needs to lay off the disco biscuits. Look at his eyes!

      It sure looks like the Zig Zag railway. I've been there a couple of times.

      Here's my modified atx power supply for the +5v and +12v I'll need for the Thomas pin. Basically all I did was connect the green wire from the pcb connector (pin 16)

      to gnd internally and remove all the extra wires I won't need.

      I'll be using the male pcb mount drive connectors on my boards.
      You could use this power supply on a 60 in 1 arcade board too.
      Cheers Trev

      Yep, All the computer power supplies are the same Green to Ground. All the ones I'm using are done the same.

      Collected it, Post that you have it & hand it over to the first person that calls for it.

      I actually had one that was all different colours so I double checked the atx connector pinout and got it working ok.
      I'd suggest checking first, while most are the green wire to ground they can be different.

      Cool things to play with especially now that they are a throw away device and you can find them anywhere 2nd hand usually for free.

      Go between +12 and -12 and you have 24vDC but the current is limited to that of the lowest terminal, usually 2 amps on the -12vDC.

      The same can be used on any of the voltage combos back to the -12v to form more voltages. A lot more useful when you have a -5vDC terminal as well not to mention if you find a supply with -24vDC as well but those supplys usually have much more capacity on the - terminals making them a lot more useful for doing this exact purpose.

      Don't put any load on the 5v standby, you will kill it if it is above about 200mA

      Any shorted power lines will prevent the power supply to boot up and also shut down the supply if a short occurs during use so they are pretty safe to run without fuses although I'd still use fuses.

      Some of these power supplys are extremely poor in quality and may not shut down when shorted or in some cases, not able to detect the power supply's cooling fan has failed and literally catch fire as a result.
