Control Panel - Front Panel Progress Continue

Well it's been about a month since my last update. I have not spend much time on the layout, somewhere between a half to two hours a week, so progress has been slow. Here are some photo of were I am at today. (sorry for the lousy photos)

First - Diode-Matrix and Staging Track Power Relay board mounting back side of control panel.

Next two - Inside control panel

Next two - Front of Control Panel with power to staging selector switches.

Note above in the photo the screw heads and plug receptacle (lower right).

I am using low tech or old tech to control turnouts, using a wand to touch the screw heads to change the route of turnouts.
