Basic Model Train Wiring

Basic WiringYou’ve purchased your starter set, set up the circle or oval of track that came with it, and ran your trains around it many times. Now, you’re starting to think of a more permanent, even if small, layout. You want to add extra track, a small yard or an industry, and be able to run more than one train at a time. How do you wire your new layout without feeling overwhelmed by it all?

In this Insider Club Featured Report, we will cover basic wiring techniques for DC and DCC, tell you how to wire your layout for building and/or street lights, show you how to use sound in both DC and DCC systems, and at the end give you a few optional advanced tips for block wiring, remote controlled switches, reverse loops, and using both DC and DCC on the same layout. With each section, we will provide links to video tutorials from some of the best model railroaders in the world.

By the time you finish reading this report you will have a solid understanding of basic wiring techniques for a small model train layout, regardless of whether you are using DC or DCC to control your trains.
