New Facia

I finally designed and installed the fascia with hinges so each panel can be swung down, out of the way when working on the wiring on the back side of the board.  My previous installation only allowed the fascia to lower to horizontal, which got in the way when reaching under the layout.

Fascia design

I’m working on designing a 10″ fascia around the layout, with room for turnout control switches with LED lights, and that can be hinged to lay flat for working on the wiring. I’m also wiring in Tortoise switch machines on the main line.
