Wire we happy?

P1090180 P1090179

The yard board has made good progress – all feeds are now attached to the main red/black bus bars and a quick test showed that voltage was getting through to every piece of track.  I have also taken the opportunity to add a number of extra feeds so that continuity is not dependent on rail joiners.

The stock rails on all the points have now been electrically bonded via loops underneath the boards (i.e. they are now DCC friendly) and all the frogs have had feeds added too ready for their connection to the point motors.

Now I need to test and then wire the point motors back to the lenz ls150 accessory decoder (which has also been installed with two small screws ready).  It’s already becoming quite a maze of wires down there!
