It’s time I carried out more electrical modifications on the layout, but those twitching servos have got me worried. When I say “twitching servos” I mean the signal servos that twitched throughout Scaleforum 2012 and which I’ve not yet sorted. Something to do with the proximity and alignment of track section feeds and servo control wires.
The cut-out for the Down Home is made and it’s decision time for new wiring. Where to route the electrics to add a new section between the loop point and the south cassettes, the DPDT switch to isolate or feed the new section, two new Fulgurex changeover switches, and those signal servo wires and power switches? It doesn’t help that the signal cut-out is bounded by electrical section feeds on three sides and track on the other.
This is when I wish Kyle of Sutherland were a second layout. I might then have some experience to call on, instead of continually dealing with the consequences of incremental design.
