wiring updates for the FremOn30 boards July 2015

Not the most interesting sides to the hobby but one I do enjoy. 3 boards are now mainly finished apart from some point wiring to feed the frogs or cross vee’s. image This is one of the main depot boards. seen in this picture are the 5 point motors and the DCC sub districts. also seen on the right are the two point controllers. image This is the second depot board with the DCC bus lines and point motors fitted IMG_1758   This shows the tree boards that are complete. The board top right is the main fiddle yard board with just 5 plain tracks. I have wired both ends of each track for belt and braces. it will take 2 wires to be disconnected before a track will lose power.   The forth board is awaiting points from the USA, but the guy is ill and I may have to think about only having 3 tracks working for the first show. IMG_1760 To this end I had a play with hand point throws on the baseboard, they will allow me to control the points but the frog will be dead.
