Cool night pics. Again, what do you mean "programming mfx decoders"? Using a second address or so?

Thanks for the nice photos, Steven.

Quite interesting to see the differens between a long row of controllers connected to 6021 compared to the rather shorter "row" of CS and MS

Sorry not able to make the trackplan.[xx(] There is approx 1100 included turnouts of C-tracks on place
OK, a simple schematic will do, just to give us an idea...

Yes, what a tremendous, impressive layout and, previously, impressive lineup of controllers.

If I had that, I would have never got a CS. That was also a hefty investment.

BTW, CS cannot control routes yet, so you lost capability. You're not using routes now?

Further you mentioned 1100 c-track turnouts. Is that correct? 1100? Wow....

Sure looks like it!
Nice pictures, good to see your efforts are definately worth it. By the way, the BR 290 shown in picture number 4 seems to have one axle derailed, has it? (The most right one in the picture)
Just a check... wink

don't you just hate it when one places a train on the layout, take pictures, reduce then, post them, and then see that you forgot to set the signals properly... :-)

Nice long trains !
