…Connecting the track to the DCC track power bus

After completing the wiring to the DCC modules it’s now time to get the power to the tracks. The track power bus is output from the ‘J’ and ‘K’ terminals on the Lenz LZV100 Command Station. I’ve taken red and black wires off these terminals to ‘choc-block’ connectors to distribute the power to the track, via the LDT RS-8 Feedback Module, and to adjacent modules via more connectors.
