Wiring points and blocks as I go
No, I’ve not had too much caffeine. It’s just that, rather than make myself a huge wiring task at the end of track laying, I’ve decided to wire as I go. It slows down the process of track laying, but it is easier to do in small parcels of work. It’s also easier to keep track of the wiring.
I started by wiring up the two new sections of track. These are wired to the LDT RS-8 feedback module as sections 514 and 515. (For those of you who are interested, I wrote about assigning addresses to the LDT RS-8 feedback module in JMRI during the construction of loft version of Dales Peak).
I’ve also added the second turnout on the layout. This second Tortoise Slow motion switch machine is wired to the Lenz LS150 turnout decoder and becomes address XT2.
