New switching locations added

June 11th, 2017

I’ve just added a new switching location and moved an old one.  I’ve extended the spur that previously served ‘Southeast Wood Treating’ and have added two new switches – one leads to the new location for Southeast Wood Treating, the other has created two new spurs for Nippon Sharyo, the railcar manufacturer.  At the moment I have just pinned the track down and am hand-throwing the turnouts until I have worked out exactly what I am doing in this new section, but at least it adds two new spurs for operations.


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.
