Re: Signal Blocks
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Your proposed piece on signal block wiring diagrams would be very helpful. It's taken me a lot of digging to find documentation of this sort. Let me suggest that you take particular care when referring to "the bus." Below, you advise that "when you gap your track for your block, you will need to cut your bus at the same point." But which bus? The one for track power? The signal bus? While I know which bus you're referring to, the answer may not be obvious to the uninitiated.
In the documentation you propose, it also would be helpful to offer tips on wiring issues that might not come readily to mind to the newcomer, particuarly changes that often must be made in existing layouts wiring, e.g. track power feeds. Similarly, it would be great if you could add some very practical tips and tricks, e.g. showing how to use the same signal bus for parallel tracks. And, then, there's the matter of integrating signaling with turnouts or interlockings, something that I'm currently wrestling with.
