I am no artist so it may come as no surprise that my wiring is functional, not pretty. The layout was, initially, a continuous circuit which, for various reasons,
disussed in an earlier entry, redesigned as a terminus to fiddleyard design.
However, the wiring has to be adapted and here is shown the resultant mess. Luckily, one of the group members is an electrician. He has kindly drawn a circuit diagram that hopefully will be implemented shortly. So, it's a matter of attaching the two main boards and getting the soldering iron out.
The connector, by the way, is a 15 way type with covering attached.

Baseboard wiring

A good opportunity to complete the wiring of Teignford at a recent 3mm Dorset Group meeting.
Shown are a few of the ingredients of this process, plus a view of the station layout. I feel that the two sidings-top left, are too close together and compromise the site of the Goods Shed.
The point is going to be removed and a single siding substituted. This will balance the use of  the area for an end loading dock and coalyard facilities.
It is really useful to discuss ideas and in this instance has made me realise that the initial idea was too cramped.
