LAYOUT UPDATE: Finally…back to the layout!

After a quiet month on the layout building progress, I finally had some time to get back to work! Wiring up the main Western Avenue Yard board (including the Western Avenue Metra Station), ready for the track laying.

All good to go!

NEW SERIES: Model Railroad Electronics Showcase: Episode 1

The first episode of my new series on showcasing the electronics I am using on my new model railroad, starting with my DCC Drawer.
