Hi Carl,

Thank you so much thats fantastic and especially thanks for the tip at the end that definitely sounds like a situation I don't want to go through.

Best regards

Subject: [w4dccqa] Paul's Layout

Hello Paul:

Nice layout.

I would suggest at least 4 blocks, more wouldn't hurt.

1) Inside loop

2) Outside loop

3) Yard

4) Turntable, plus the turntable may need polarity to fixed as it rotates, I think the Atlas turntable has this built in. On Jim's layout I put cams and limit switches to reverse the power.

I would suggest more blocks and lots of insulated rail joints. Much easier now, than later. Don't ask me how I know, I had to gap and rewire three times on my layout.

Best wishes, Carl.
