    Good to catch and correct that now than after turnout servos are installed and ballast laid, Rodney!

      Exciting Rodney!
      Will these be controlled via a panel or DCC, or both?
      I really need to get down to your layout....

      That is really an impressive yard. Can you reach those back tracks ?

      Allen, they will be operated just by the control panel

      Brad, The width at this part of the yard is only 24", so it's pretty easy to reach those back tracks

    One of the major drawbacks to servos, is that the signal wire cannot be longer than 60" or somewhere there about.

    There is a couple of ways to wire servos
    One, is run all three wires back to the controller
    The other is run a buss with 5 volt positive and negative for the servo power, and only the signal wire goes to the controller.

    On most of my mine, I've done the all three wires back to the controller (Arduino)​

      22 servos installed and the rotary switch matrix wired. Next will be the 2 control panels

        Holy crap Rodney! That's a lot of wiring, lol
        Kudos to you for keeping it all straight and proper...

          I think Allen should promote you beyond the title of SWITCHMAN after seeing all of this. You've gotta feel good with this much progress.

          I don't know Michael, he IS working with switches so his title is fitting? LOL
