I cut the remaining drawer openings into the bench work. I’ll now have three drawers on the east side and one on the south. I still need to make the fourth drawer, but I got busy painting the three that have already been built.

I started into some layout electrical. I sited my Digitrax DCS100 command station beneath the layout. I ran two buses: red/black for DCC & white/green for layout lighting. I also sited the Digitrax UR92 radio receiver.

I think I need to completely finish the fascia before I install the drawers and start laying track. I plan to be doing some more fascia work as time permits. I’ll also be installing the Formica fascia on top of the hardboard.

I didn’t want to bother myself with installing a sound decoder into my BNSF Kato SD40-2, so I bought a BN Kato SD40-2 with ESU Loksound installed from Model Train Stuff. It looks awesome. I haven’t tested it yet (no track wired up) but it comes with sound decoder and ditch lights. I wanted to have a locomotive on hand to start testing as soon as I could and this was my top choice.
