Wiring the Staging Yard

Andrew came over last Wednesday, and glued down most of the rest of the rail in the staging yard.  I followed him with the soldering iron and wire strippers and added feeders to all the rails.


Some of the wiring trenches got pretty crowded, but I only had to carve one a little wider to get all the wires in. The frogs will all be powered by a Hex Frog Juicer, and the cable in the foreground is a six-conductor cable, from which I pulled wires for the individual frogs.

By the end of the evening, Andrew had finished all the rail up to the turntable approaches. We still need to glue down the bonus tracks on the far side of the turntable. Then we’ll be finished all the track on the layout.
