Reply to "Starting control panel"

Because perimeter aisle space is limited all around my L-shaped layout, I needed to hide control panels UNDERNEATH the layout platform so as to avoid aisle constriction.  I installed a pull-out panel on glider rails for the controls. Handy when in use, and the control panel disappears from view when not needed.   A second pull-out panel is for the transformers. I control my Lionel TMCC-equipped locos with a CAB-1 and others with LionChief controllers.

The switches on my routes are installed to be self-controlling by the anti-derail circuit built-in to the switches, so there's not much need for constant access to the Lionel and K-Line switch controllers on the slide in/out control panel. Photo attached for reference.

  • Switch Controller Panel: The panel pulls out for use, pushes back under the platform otherwise.
