Installing servos

I’m using servos to operate the points on the Kay Hernan layout as they show a more realistic slow movement and they are easily controlled though the CBUS. I’m using the MERG 3D printed servo mounts but have found a problem with them; the slot that the piano wire passes through is a bit too large and thus the point throw is a bit sloppy, I have had to drill a 0.9mm hole just under the slot to take the operating wire. This seems to have done the trick and the points seem to be working correctly.

So far I have two of the points servos fitted. One of them has the micro switches fitted and awaiting connection to the track supply and the point frog.
