Lighting for low relief Factories

Re: DCC and electrofrog turnouts

That's even better there is even a space to put the linking wire ready made. Thank you Catweasel :D

Another thought I am using the center hole for the point motor, do I leave the outer parts of the points actuating rods or cut them off?

Re: DCC and electrofrog turnouts

I am glad you sorted the shorting out and I am about to start laying the OO code 75 peco electrofrog points and have a question. The back of the packet shows the instructions for wiring them But is says to cut the link under the track! I can see cutting it would prevent shorting from a loco bridging...

I was looking to renumber it so I don't want it weathered, I may look at getting a LMS ...
