          Looks good. I'd like to hear more about the mechanical connections under the layout.

            George,

            There are no connections under the layout...I use battery power remote control (BPRC). This is outside under a covered patio. I do have some lights in the buildings using a surplus wall wart. All the stub switches are hand built.

              Michael, I was asking about what appears to be controls for dumping coal or some mineral.

                George,


                Sorry, misunderstood. The chute on the ore bin is connected to a rod that goes up and down. That rod is connected to another horizontal rod that protrudes through the front of the layout that makes the chute go up and down. I do have photos that might help explain it if I could just figure out how to post them.

                    Maybe I figured out this posting thing.

                    On the far left is a red handle (from a used paint brush) that turns the horizontal rod that makes the chute go up and down.

                    There is also "the dump" that rotates each ore car to empty the contents.
