Default Drop Gate (Mains)

There is a small local track looking at building a drop gate for there track. I remember seeing a video where it was computer timed so it dropped vehicles at predetermined timed intervals. I also believe there is a web site that makes them or has info about them, or something like that.

If you know what the heck I'm talking about, please post a link or video so I can pass it on to them.

Thanks....

Steve,
There was a guy up in Canada designing a gate like that. I am not sure if he is still around, but it is the best gate I have ever seen anywhere. It was controlled by the computer and they could adjust the interval in between each gate dropping individually.

Thanks looper.


Yeah Colin, I remember you once talking about it when you lived here in the Golden State. By chance you have his number or web site if he has one at all.
