ELECTRICAL DEVELOPMENT

 

As mentioned on the Little Stoke page, I originally planned to run this layout on DC and so for the first outing of the layout at the local train show,  which was 2 and a half months after I started construction,  I just ran it with the Gaugemaster D twin unit.  I then thought that as I wanted more than one train working at a time, I could run at least three by using the four channel unit and having the branch line run through a shuttle unit and running the two circuits on the next two channels leaving the fourth to do the inner goods yard.

Due to changing from servo lifting uncouplers. it was decided to install Kadee electromagnetic units -the underneath view of lower yard (left) and upper level on right.
