Electric block diagram

Electric block diagram Zoom in 26kB

Here is the block diagram for the layout. Blocks 1 to 6 are main blocks which would be connected to the controls via SPDT(Single Pole Double Throw) switches. Block 2:1 is a slave block to block 2. Block 6:1 to 6:5 are slave blocks to block 6, each controlled via an SPST(Single Pole Single Throw) switch. Block 6:5:1 is a slave block to block 6:5. So red marks the boundary between main blocks and yellow between main and slave blocks. All blocks are insulated throu both rails. Im planning to use two controls/cabs.

Note: In 2012 i removed the DC blocks and installed DCC.
