Well it's only taken around 5 years I reckon, but I have finally taken my controller back out of the box and found a permanent space for it. And it still works! Now I have my rear fiddle yard space I want to be able to control everything from the rear.

Initially I thought to run the through line as close as possible to the backboard and place the controller in front of it. However, on reflection and in order to minimise the curves and maximise the space for track I went the complete opposite.

My main concern was then accidentally knocking a train off as I controlled the show, so I needed a little tunnel, or cover, in front of the controller. Worked out quite nicely. Who knows I may even have at length of powered, working track up soon. No sense in rushing things....



A couple of brackets to hold it all steady, and then a couple of pieces of MDF to make the shelter. Liquid Nails is magical stuff. Now I can create some additional trackwork out the back (eg. programming track, holding lines, etc.)
