Re: New to DCC
The latex / concrete mix has a few days of an ammonia smell, then little else. And a sump pump is a good idea.
If you use insulation displacement screws you can avoid soldering:
I have had very good results with these.
I'm not sure why you would use center off toggles for your turnout. On Jim's layout we only used three position toggles for his three way turnouts. It took two relays to make the turnout motors run. So are you planning hand Caboose ground throws and then powering the points with the toggles? I think Caboose has ground throws that include contacts for frog power.
usually use 1K ohm resistors for LEDs. They seem to work fine.

I would like to seal the basement walls but probably will not have the time to do the interior basement walls with anything but paint. Because of my wife's allergies we will have to get the entire basement painted quickly so that it we can have the windows open for a big chunk of the summer to let the paint 'outgas', or whatever you call it. We have a couple of areas that get damp when we have extensive rain - usually takes a week or more which is pretty rare around here. Another reason to stick with just concrete paint.
