This certainly has been a day long coming. The layout lighting for both decks is completely finished and operational. There are more light bulbs and LEDs than Carter has liver pills! The layout also received its first in-benchwork wiring – the lower deck LED supply runs. Another 75′ of 12 ga. solid copper wire with crimped and soldered terminals. A pair of 3/4″ holes have been bored through each crossmember across the whole upper deck for wire runs. I originally wanted to wait until the risers were located before drilling wiring holes but that plan was foiled as I decided to install the LED wiring now. Didn’t want to get way down the road with sub-roadbed construction only to find there is a problem with the LED installation. Luckily, the LED and CFL install worked right first time out.
Next up… sub-roadbed for the track. Getting one step closer to running trains!
