Into the winter season updates.


The DC HO layout has changed a bit. The hill was remove and the track plan is now 2 ovals on a flat surface.  Here we see Don S. putting in two sidings on the inner oval. With these changes and when all the trackwork is in, there will be numerous switching opportunities on this small layout. 

Hunter, on the main layout received a large renovation. Turnouts were replaced and powered, a second passing track was added and switch control panels were installed. The Elsewhere yard also got some powered turnouts with accompanying control panels, all made by Jim F. Joseph also got the club new capacitor discharge units to power the turnout motors. A job well done by all who helped out. These changes have seem to correct most of our problems. 

A small glitch in a turning switch, joining Elsewhere and Wellington yards, was also rectified by Jim F. And he is now working on a problem with some of our controllers not being to pick up the correct address. He has found unhooking one WiFi unit corrects the problem. Now to find out how to get the system to work with both WiFi units hooked up.
