Layout Wired For DCC And Includes DCC System With Power Cab And Manuals(see photo 7) That Includes One UTP And One Cable, Booster(see photo 8), Circuit Breakers, 3 Additional UTP's And 3 Cables. With The Booster The System Can Handle Up To 10 Locomotives. The UTP'S Can Be Installed Around The Layout So You Can Follow Your Trains Around And/Or Have Additional Operators By Adding Additional Power Cabs. UTP'S Can Be Installed In Layout Framing Or Mounted As Photo Shows. Layout Is 12' x 8' x 9' And Built In Come Apart Sections.
I Do Have Printed Instructions But Sections Are Labeled As Well As Wiring Labeled. Wiring Was Done With Terminal Strips So No Wire Cutting Is Needed. The Bus Wires Are 14 AWG Which Is Heavier Than The Recommended 16 AWG.
The Lower The AWG The Heavier The Wire. The Layout Framing Is Not The Usual Lumber Grade.It Is Select Grade 1" x 4". All Plywood Is Screwed Down To The Extent Of Probably Over Doing It.
The Sections Are Bolted Together. Legs Are 1" x 4" With A 2" x 4" At Bottom. Casters On Bottom Of Each Leg.
The Legs Are Fastened With 4 Bolts(not 2). Track And Switches Are Nickel Silver Code 100. Track And Cork Footages Are About 175' Each. There Are 2 Loops With Crossovers And Yard On Main Level.
It Also Has 2 Passing Sidings. The Crossovers And Passing Sidings Gives You The Opportunity To Run Several Trains At The Same Time. That's The Advantage Of DCC Over DC. With DC All Trains Move At The Same Time That Are On The Same Track.
Each Engine Is Controlled Individually With DCC. A Third Loop Is Above The 12' Dimension That Is Not Connected To Any Of The Main Level. The Raised Loop Results In Main Level Train Loops Running Under It Which Creates Tunnels. The Yard Can Be Extended An Additional 3' If You Want. Then It Would Be 12' On both Sides.
Layout Over Built, Yes Probably. The Single Track You See Around Room Wall In Photo 1 Is Not Part Of The Layout.Engine Has Digitrax DCC Decoder Installed. 3 Building Kits Are Included Which Totals 6 Buildings. The Largest Kit Has 4 Buildings. The Large Kit Is AHM 5851 E, Coaling Station Is Bachman 2808, And Signal Tower Is Tyco 7768. The AHM 5851E Kit Includes 4 Kits: Railroad Hotel, Aunt Millie's House, Speedy Andrews Repair Shop, And E.
The DCC Publications Are Also Included. I Will Disassemble The Layout Or You Can Assist If You Want To So You Will Have A Better Idea Of The Reassembling.
