Very nice Clive, a great sense of purposeful activity going on around the layout.  Fancy giving us some details about your modelling?
Michael

Hi Michael
I have 15 Locos all dcc sound with either ESU loksound or Zimo decoders. I wanted really good start up and slow speed control. I found that TTS decoders didn't like my Prodigy express controller
Some locos bought new but most S/H. Diesel and steam - mixed eras.
I have an 8 amp booster on the power supply.
I won't show you the underside wiring - because I make it up as I add items. It looks a bit like the poles at the junction of 4 roads in Vietnam...
Nearly all points are Peco electro frog and operated mostly by Seep PM1 solenoids but a couple by PM20 surface motors where underside access impossible.
Frog polarity set by GaugeMaster auto frogs.
I use the point motor switches to operate the green led's between the rails. I find it easier to see those to tell me a point has thrown and the direction the loco will take. I don't have lights on my control panel.
I have an incline at the back that is way steeper than it should be - about 1:36 so my passenger rakes are pulled by consists - good fun tweaking them. The coaches have a lot of drag as they have lighting powered by wheel wipers.

I am happy to answer questions.
Clive
