Reply to "Finally Starting - New Layout, Wiring Diagram, Control Panel"

A little more progress over the weekend.  The good news is that there should only be a couple more wires that need to be added behind the TIU and AIU.  After that, I'll use cable nail-in clips to further organize and line everything up.  Before soldering and making the connections in the control panel, I have 3 more turnouts to run wire to and will then twist the common and hot wires together that run to the 4 uncoupling tracks.  I've also starting adding my power and running that wire, which is about 90% complete.  OF COURSE you can see that I had my helper.  Its really hard to believe that only 4 weeks ago (February 10th) I started my benchwork (and of those 4 weeks, I was out for an entire week on vacation.)



I wish I would've used black cable ties so it'd look a little neater, but this is okay I guess.



Most of the holes that the wire runs through are labeled, a couple are missing, but I'll fix that eventually.


This wiring will look much better when I'm done running wires here.  It will also all be labeled.



My supervisor.
