Follow along as I continue the build of my N scale model railroad. In this episode I complete the wiring and track laying in the helix. I explain how I did the blocks for train detection and how I wired the helix. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to follow my layout building progress. Also please follow my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/chicagosubnscale as I will be adding photos and updates to that as I build my new layout.
Productive day today – finished the wiring of my helix and connected it to the Digitrax BXP88 block detector. Successfully ran 2 shuttle schedules using Railroad & Co, testing two locos up and down the helix. Now just to wait for the first baseboard kits to arrive and I can get started on my yards.
The exciting part has started…gluing down the track on the helix and adding the wiring! Busy filming it all, so new video out soon!
Something to keep you occupied till my next video…from the archives – dismantling my old Rochelle Intermodal layout to make way for my new BNSF Chicago Sub layout…18 years of layout gone in 28 seconds! I tore down my old layout just over a year ago…and the new one is just starting to rise up from the ashes! New video coming out early next week – the helix arrives! Unboxing and first look!
