Control Panel.

The control Panel for 'Teignford' is not state of the art, just functional.
The plastic box used was free, so no contest there then!
The layout for the station section has been drawn on the front and the layout name added-so we don't forget which one we are operating-I'm getting older you know!
Several holes have been drilled where the switches are going to go and some already inserted.
Once the rest are done then it's time to get the soldering iron out and wire it up.

Elecrical Gubbins.

How we get the electricity to where we want it is the next task.
Here are a selection of what will be used. From left to right-simple single throw on-off switch. Next a single throw on-on type used to divert feeds. Finally the connection to and between baseboards is made with 'D' type connectors. These are made with various numbers of pins, this one happens to be 9 pin. They can be sourced ready wired from some electronic component suppliers.
