Och Ae is Buchanan McInroy's next layout.
As l persuaded him to go digital, it has had to be re-wired as it was originally going to be dc, and certain assumptions had been made, including cutting the wiring tails off the points for some reason.
So, job 1 was to wire my way out of that one!

The track plan is there, for component id, one point has been changed because it is intended to be able to add this to the headshunt of Buchshee if/when we wish. This will be another part of Buchshee's rebuild.
I have to get Och Ae out of the way, to enable Buchshee to be assembled and worked upon.

This image shows how the layouts are supported.
The book/display shelves are from Ikea and spare shelves are screwed to create cantilevers to support the layout modules.
Whilst they are a little high for operating from my armchair, l avoid back strain and do not have to lie under them for wiring either. A  couple of breakfast bar stools will solve the issues when the layouts are finished.
Enough for now, I shall [   ] off and produce the wiring diagram by flipping the wiring diagram from left to right.
Planning to use red to the top, with black below.
Mind l am pondering whether to use blue to correspond with DCCconcepts track and wire illustrations. I already use green wire for frog feeds to the Cobalts.
In a way, I suppose that this is part one of my competition entry as it is a trial run to prove my core layout rebuild of Buchshee.
😈Anyone got a book on point-rodding, please? 😈
