Tuesday night at the Huff and Puff

The discussion at the meeting centered around electronics. Our new booster is in and it and the other 2 we have provide 5 amps max each. Engines need 1 1/2 to 2 amps. That's with sound on. So only 3 to 4 engines per booster. At times we are running too many on the layout. Maybe we can feed different areas from the same quad instead of daisy chaining 1 quad to adjacent blocks. We my also need to limit how many engines can run at one time.
Meanwhile feeder wires were being soldered to the new upper mainline, 4 on each turnout and a set of feeders on every section of track.
