DCC Bus Wiring for a shunting layout

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Thank you all for your valuable input.  I like the idea of a bus for rail power and another for accessory power, especially as this is going to be a long term project and I will probably add point motors etc quite a bit later than getting the track powered up. I also the like the idea of integrating the program track into the layout. I am planning on having a small diesel refuelling /stabling point at the front of the layout, so this would be an ideal place for the program track.  I forgot to mention that the layout will be permanently housed in my garage but it will be made up of three 5ft long boards which will be removable so i can stand them up for wiring etc. I am making progress with the baseboards and hope to start laying track soon. Thanks again
