Thanks all for the responses and ideas. Finally getting serious on this part of the new layout and had one more question. I run Lionchief and DCS locos. In configuring the switches like Rod and Steve show above, is there any "best practice" or pitfall to avoid messing up the DCS signal? On my previous layout, I used buss wiring and did not have a yard- never had a DCS issue. On this one I plan to use the proverbial star approach so the yard, siding, or turntable switches will be a extensions of a block or added to a track connection. Any thoughts are appreciated.
