Having more fun than a person should be allowed this morning as the Traingineers focus on dismantling a TW TrainWorx custom New Haven themed O Gauge Layout that is by far our most incredibly intricate and electronically involved layout designed to date! What am I talking about?? Having our East Coast Director, Mike Reagan, here in our Dallas Studio has been quite educational for moi. I've learned more in the last 48 hours than I ever thought possible... but when you're learning from the best of the best - it's to be expected Truthfully, throughout this layout fabrication/coding/wiring process I've been doing a ton of head shaking and mumbling... you're doing WHAT? It's going to be finished by WHEN?
What I've been head shaking and mumbling about is incorporating the following custom layout items;
*87 Custom Signals
*50 Detection Rails
*25 Un-couplers (not to be confused with a divorce )
*25 Power blocks
* 3 Power Districts that each have 20 amps/district
Oh.... and get a load of this, this layout will run Conventional, TMCC, and Legacy - CRAZY I TELL YA!!! And I haven't even mentioned the scenic/modeling Traingineers completed like; two custom Signal Towers, two custom bridges, New Haven Station Model, East Rock area, custom surround power station that surrounds the controllers with a working industrial smoke signal, couple of Warehouses that, of course, light up, village inclusive with ice cream shop and chapel, monument and although I haven't seen it yet... a coaling tower will complete the layout topside!
So, back to the UNDERNEATH... LET'S GO!
