Got a package today from Tony’s Train Exchange. I ordered a DCC Specialties PSX4, Tortoise Buddy Seniors, and a couple RR Ramp meters.
The PSX4 contains 4 circuit breakers on one board. I’ll need a total of 7 power districts on the layout, so in the future I’ll order one of their PSX2’s as well as a PSXAR (auto reverser)
The tortoise buddies are for controlling the switch machines, and the RR Ramp meters measure Volts and Amps on each power district. I plan on mounting the meters on the helix frame to provide short detection
And my good flunk- er I mean friend Dave came over the other night and we threw up some hardboard:
This is a full 4X8 foot sheet of 1/8″ hardboard in the corner, really doesn’t look that big!
And the helix is still growing. A few more loops and it will be finished!
