Traverser/Board one electrics done.

Over the last two days a lot of work has been completed, not least the electrics. A Gaugemaster DC twin track controller and track cleaner has been used, both retrieved from an old layout. The centre three tracks have been split with isolation to allow a total of ten trains to be stored on the traverser.

My method with the electric’s is to have all the tracks on one side permanently coupled (the blue wire) with the full contact on the other track being made by the bolt and loops (the red wire). Simple but it works.

All the track on the first scenic board has been laid and the controller etc. installed. The back board scenic board bases have been added. The second scenic board has been started with a cut out for a river.

The second traverser is not due until Mid June – so after further work on the river and adding track – I will have a break from this un-named layout
