The DCC control for the layout it is going to require various control modules and I want these where they are accessible, not tucked away under the layout where they are hard to get at.
So, I have decided to make a feature of them and house these in control cabinets around the outside of the layout. This will mean running wires further but will make maintenance easier.
This is where I am going to put the first control cabinet… close to the computer and monitor I installed recently.
Construction begins with a recessed backboard for mounting control modules on.
The finished result… for the time being. This will evolve with the layout’s progress. I’ve already installed the first pieces including an old DC control unit which I am using to weight down the shelf while it glues.
