The session was spent installing the wiring from the mains power block to the DCC controller and wishing that the baseboard bulkheads weren't where we found them!
Last week we found a socket tht had been wired incorrectly, so durinbg this session we fixed the problem and checked that the other sockets tested OK.
The boxes to house the sockets for the hand-held controllers had been 3D ptinted during the week (2 hours per box). They were mounted on the side of the baseboard and testing commenced.
Most of the base wiring has now been completed and tested. Two sockets remain to be installed when they arrive from China. All we need now is the track to be completed.
Some further experimentation with three D printed windows ans more work on the installation of trunking under the baseboards and the installation of some basic wiring.
