Electrics - Overview


The layout will be DCC operated when used by me in standalone mode but will need to cater for DC when joined to the rest of the WSNG modular system.


This will mean some switching and isolating to allow DC and DCC to coexist but not touch on the layout.


Tracks 1 and 2 are isolated from the rest of the layout so nothing required on the main board, I'll feed these tracks from each end in Standalone mode.


Track 3 will be the most complicated, in modular operations trains will arrive on DC and then be isolated, switched to DCC and then reversed into the Exchange sidings with the reverse operation to leave.


Track 4 will be switched to have track 3 running through it if there is a transfer in place on track 3.
