Back to work:


I installed Teflone glides to allow the drawer to slide easy without creating a Z scale earthquake.

New Rokuhan double crossovers will replace two single ones already in place.

I'm using RJ45 connectors between the drawer and table to control my turnouts and allow for easy removal of layout drawer for maintenance. Then retouch the scenery and finish up.

Time to finish this wiring once and for all. I hate the little terminal blocks.

I will be running the switch machine wires thru the 4 socket wall plate in the middle. The plate is just under flush with the bottom so the drawer can be removed by unplugging the network cables. Dont worry, i will tidy up the cables. I'm going to make some panels to cover and protect the loose wires.

Here are views of the two Rokuhan Double Crossovers. They perform well in testing.

I've found a few more turnouts that need cleaning due to scenery glue leaching into the mechanisms. Time to fix is now before putting the drawer back in the table.
