Hi Sol,
I didn't think of doubling up, that would spread the loads.

I also didn't think of Bulgins, amdaley I think I have some of those laying around.

Nice and strong... I can see why you are keen to make this layout for your boys robust... I remember my two at that age!
Keep it coming.

Marty

Hi John,

Once a day? Then you need something robust and reliable. Molex and the like are not meant to be repeatedly disconnected.

Consider the following: £2.66 each.from Amazon (power extension cable). 2 of these between the boards will carry 2 circuits.



Nigel

Thanks, Marty, he has already tried climbing on it!  I can say with confidence it happily supports a 5-year-old's weight.
I am concerned with using mains type plugs and sockets for 12v, BCDR.  I am sure that no-one would plug mains into it, but there is always that chance.  Also with points, signals and isolation circuits that is a lot of cables needed.

Thought some people might like an update as a thank you for all those that have helped.

The tidy side!
