  1. I'm a DCC OO/ho NewBee. No soldering, wiring, model making experience or any other train skills...and I currently am at a 'stall' in the track build as I learn and think about block occupation in a few out of the way spaces in difficult to reach spots.

    Attic size <4 m x 2.75m, with stairwell and access in sorta the middle.

    It just fits 3 x 8x4 boards with an extra few meter runs both sides in holes in walls into small side attics. 2 levels built, 3rd is planned with code 75

    Track = <100 metres peco 100 track all mostly laid, star shape, 2.5 and 1.5 twisted bus, block wiring tworail isolated gaps, 7 metres runs including track, both rails gapped at many insulfrogs (some will be DCC) , part of level 2 and all level 3 will be electrofrog.

    80% of layout is wired above board, while I sorta understood 'power divisions' and the difference x circuit breakers and then track occupancy requirements, as most is manual, i'v left all that to the latter part of the build, which is where I am now at.imageproxy.php?img=&key=ac96cff20d889157imageproxy.php?img=&key=ac96cff20d889157imageproxy.php?img=&key=ac96cff20d889157
