May be back there in a year or two to check progress. It really helps that I'm a Big Boy nut.
Dennis, he has probably gone to DCC completely and using sound. Many of my locomotives are sound equipped and the layout is DCC (digital command control).
The decoders for the locomotives can be had for less than 15 bucks without sound.
It adds a lot to the operation and to me it seems a lot easier to wire.
