Spend about 1.5 hours prepping and installing 45 pair of track feeders. Feeder are in place just need to solder to track. Next is to get the bus wires installed under the layout, but I still need to determine how I am going to divide the layout into DCC booster sections. I have four booster presently to use.

Track Laying - Weekend 3/27 Udpdate

I have been working on finishing installing the ceiling tile sub-base for the rest of the Layout and some roadbed and track. I need to build a bridge and I am going to have to hand-lay a 45 degree crossing once my material gets here, so here are the latest photos.

I also need to started getting my Easy DCC system installed, so I can start working on track and turnout power/control wiring. I re-used the pull-out draw from the old HO layout and the booster panel.
