Follow along as I continue the build of my N scale model railroad. In this short episode I give an introduction to the first scenic area on my layout, along 16th St. & Wood St., with a warehouse, vacant lot and a couple of houses.
In this video I show you how I add the signals to the CATS CTC dispatcher panel and give you a demonstration on how it works.
In this video I show you how I connect the signal heads on my Showcase Miniatures Signal Bridge to the Digitrax TSMK connectors and via ribbon cable to the Digitrax SE8C Signal Controller.
