Turning the corner to the control panel - the kinks are almost gone.

Perfect John, just perfect.

Isaac is well on his way to his MMR. He explained to his Dad when he got home how the electricity goes through the wires and tells the locomotive what to do.

Good point - I hope we can keep it they way long enough for him to learn useful "marketable" skills.

I started implementing my control panel design, today.  I used a cardboard mockup to establish the angle and height for this first one, because it is the tallest. There will be a total of four panels to control all of the turnouts in the Superior Yard. I put together a list of the oak lumber and moldings that I needed to complete them and took a trip to the lumber store this evening. All of the oak will be stained to match the cabinets.
I should have an update, tomorrow.

You shouldn't have to wait too long.  I plan on getting the first one operational this week.  We will see how fast it really goes. I have pieces laying everywhere right now.
