Train Display Automation

The Train Display Automation Project was undertaken for the client in order to allow for the outfitting of discrete motion and robotics to a life size model of a suspended railway train engine and carriages. The completed project was installed as part of the main Christmas display for the Long Circular Mall, St James, Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Project involved:

  • the installation of robotics to allow for the ‘life like’ motion of the display mannequins
  • variable speed drive systems for all engine and carriage wheels
  • installation of lighting systems and audio systems for train effects
  • timer design and installation for automatic on/off control of entire system
