For the past year now our electronics crew have been busy working on upgrading the layout to a new operating system called JMRI. This entails rewiring all the track, adding new detection boards, and redesigning the dispatch panels. The dispatch panel is expected to be completed by mid 2018. As for rewiring the mainline, that is expected to be completed before our 2017 show in November.
New boards and wiring.
This is some of the work being done under the layout to integrate the new JMRI system.
