Yale’s been back in touch with his ‘finished’ N scale DCC layout.
“Schiffy here. Hope you and your readers had a Happy New Year.
There have been a lot of updates to our N Scale Bristol and Cheston Line since my last post.
We underwent a name change. It is now Fairfield and Cheston.
With the completion of the Industrial Complex this phase of our railroad construction is pretty much done. That is if you can ever be done.
I’ve enclosed some photos which show the detailing that we started to add.
It is lot of work for arthritis hands but very satisfying.
We upgraded to DCC and added three DCC locomotives and two throttles in addition to the one that is on the DCC console. We used the jump ports and our old DC power pacs. My next goal is to have computer control of all train operations.
I am adding NMRI software along with some hardware so that we will be controlling our layout from our computer. In an earlier life I wrote computer programs.
I am looking forward to writing routines that will operate several routes including control of turnouts, signals and station stops.
For those folks thinking about this I will post my progress.
In the meanwhile hope you enjoy the enclosed photos.
A big thanks to sharing his N scale DCC layout.
His last post is here if you want to see the progress.
Now on to Wayne.
If you want to get up to speed on Wayne’s layot, here’s the story so far:
1. Wayne’s very first post on his HO layout 8×15 is here.

Now for his latest:
“Well I think I have the hardest part done. I have the trusle done and in place. Not to shabby for a old guy with a broken arm. I really like seeing what other people do with their layouts.
A big thanks to Wayne and Yale.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
