Covid-19 diary – Kuritu II – 4 – electrics

Next job, the point motors.  The switches are just recessed into the baseboard.  All the switches come off my old ‘Earl’s Wood’ layout.  I think the little plastic push button switch is about 50 years old and came from an early OO layout build with my dad.  The layout is wired in two sections to allow two trams to the on the move – left half and right half. The slide switch allows power to the sidings to be routed to either controller.

And all the point motors fitted and wired up and working.  Again, all from old layouts.

And the controller rewired with a decent lead to connect to the layout.

Since the above, I’ve run a quick rattle can coat of sleeper grime (masking the points) over the track, and am ready to start some scenery.  I will first lay out the roads, including the sections of track that include the track, then ballast the remaining track.

A cartoon ‘borrowed’ from RMweb.  I rather liked this!
