Latest progress on Rochelle Intermodal

December 23rd, 2007

The layout is progressing well! I have completed wiring up both Intermodal yard boards, with board 1 hooked up to the BDL168 occupancy detector, and board 2 ready to be wired up, but just waiting on PowerPole connectors to join the wiring between the boards.

Look on the Video page for videos of the first complete run on the layout!

I should have board 2 connected to the rest of the layout by next weekend (depending on when the PowerPoles arrive). I still have frog wiring to finish off and also need to decide on where to locate switch motors. I might just locate point motors on the mainline switches and leave the yard switches as manual.

Right, hopefully there will be more news next weekend. In the meantime, have a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year! See you in 2008!
