I've just finished roughing in some switches. I used an idea for modifying them suggested by several of the more advanced modelers on this forum ...

I really enjoy RC (remote control) stuff (helicopters, planes, trucks etc.) ... But model trains were the original RC ... :lol:
Just an update on my control panel project


It looks like I'll (we'll) be adding DCC to my (our)wish list(s) along with the short gap points and a steam loco with turning wheels ... 2018 (?) I'll believe it when I see it .... ;)
