Rochelle Intermodal N Scale Intermodal & Switching Layout

Rochelle Intermodal

Welcome to the Rochelle Intermodal website, showcasing my N scale layout. This layout is loosely based on Rochelle, Illinois, and has an intermodal facility (based on Global III) and industrial switching areas (based on Caron Road, Rochelle, IL.). This website follows the progress of the construction of my Rochelle Intermodal N scale layout, with photos and videos.

Turntable test – decoder fitted

May 30th, 2016

I have fitted a Digitrax DZ143 decoder to control my Peco turntable. Using a decoder allows fine control, allowing easy track alignment using slow speeds. Testing after installation in the baseboard.

I’ve also installed the main power and accessory buses & LocoNet cable under the loco facility boards.  I think I have decided on a track plan for this area, but will have a look again over the next few days before finalising it.
