DCC Conversion Continues!

 

At the end of 2015, we closed the club to regular public open houses so that we could convert the layout's old DC control system to DCC. Through 2016, a few dedicated club members removed the old wiring and began installing a Digitrax DCC system. By the end of 2016, the whole mainline had been converted and was operating, including the installation of decoder controlled mainline switch machines. In 2017, the club was opened back up for numerous tours, groups and events at the station. We are continuing to progress on the DCC conversion, wiring the staging and classification yards. Visitors are still welcome to stop by on Sundays even if we will be working on the layout and not running trains. We will continue hosting groups and open houses with trains running as the need arises. Hopefully the DCC conversion will be completed this winter 2017/2018.
