Things are quiet …
Well since the carpet went down, not much has been happening.
I have started to acquire some storage solutions for the train stuff, and am currently working on getting the workbench in place.
Andrew and I setup Bowen Creek a few weeks ago and have been carrying out testing on some new locomotives and the suspension systems prior to our appearance at Thornleigh in June.
Over the last few days, I have been thinking about how I will tackle the first stage of benchwork construction.
I think I will start with the storage yards, lay all the track and turnouts, then work my way around to Kankool.
I have also designed the DCC route definitions for the storage yards. There will be a total of 32 turnouts, with 33 separate routes in and out of the yards. The routes will be defined in the EasyDCC command station.
Just to finish off this post, I have drawn up the layout track plan schematic. I will use this to determine how many DCC sections I will split the layout into.
Cheers for now.
