Jerry,
If the rest of the layout is as great as your carpentry work it's going to be a killer!
I also LOVE the wiring. While mine is fairly neat, I still have to crawl around under the 10'X10' table. Lots of brain bumps!
BTW, I came thru San Antonio on the Amtrak several years ago. We arrived around 11:30pm in a sleeper car near the front of the train with my head toward the loco.
After hooking up with The City of New Orleans to continue west, my head was facing the rear and our car was second from the end of the train.
I recall seeing a BEAUTIFUL depot when I peeked out the window between snores.
Keep up the great work and keep those pics flowing,
Bob

Because of the intended operation, I will have a lot of small blocks. The fold line was a suitable boundry for many of the blocks so there is no electrical continuity desired in the rails at the fold line. Conveinent right?

Here are the pictures for the electronics panels, DCS interface and DC power. The small black and red on the interface strip are for the programming track.

Thumbs up

Wow, this is the first time I am looking at your layout.
Very nice,

I would like to see it folded up half way but with the top side showing so I can see where the track separates.

She will only let you in the house for a couple of days?
Your lucky I don't think I would even get a couple of minutes.

Why don't you just set it up in the garage?

Very neat

Your wiring and how you kept everything super clean and neat is top notch Makes trouble shoothing easier if you ever run into any problems.

Very cool idea you have with it folding up like that! This gives alot of people ideas who are tight on space or just dont want to eat up a room for a layout all the time, again another

Keep the pictures coming, we all want to see more

Nice set up! Why DCC for such a small layout? You can remotor those Athearns to quiet them down, draw less amperage and DCC to it. You can hard wire those old Athearns easily.

The answer for "why DCC" is for computer automation and remote internet control and viewing.
