'power' to the track (2) - control box
Have put the control box in place so I can run the feeds to the track. I re-used my old control box which was made from a green mailbox.
I had to be creative on making a stand for it and a rummage around yielded two offcuts of treated wood batton, a length of angle iron and a couple of suitable brackets. The angle iron was knocked into the ground about 18ins to provide the main support - painted over quickly in wood stain - the rear view...
The control panel in the box has a connection for the feeds to the track from the controller and switches in place if I want to add control of the sections for the station main line, passing loop and siding.
