Moura Mine Panel Project: This project involves the restoration of a former Queensland Railways signal control panel. The panel came from Moura Mine station (Central Queensland) and is an early type, commissioned in the early 1970's when CTC was implemented from South Gladstone to Moura Mine.
This project involves the restoration of a surplus signal control panel, and the simulation of operation by linking the panel to a computer.
Considering the age of the panel (over 40 years old) it was in remarkably good condition. Some replacement switches have been sourced and the original incandescent lamps will be replaced by LED's.
The hardware to link the panel to a computer has been sourced. Restoration of the panel is soon to commence to bring the panel back to an 'as new' condition.
