Ballast Removal Done, Now DCC Wiring and New Turnout Controls

Ballast removal from the Dunes Junction layout is now complete! Woo hoo!

Completion of the de-ballasting project clears the decks for some new layout renewal projects, which Dunes Junction management have dubbed the 'zen electrical simplification program,' the goal of which is less wire, more fun. Look for future posts on my zen electrical simplification program which will involve joining the Digital Command Control (DCC) revolution and mechanical turnout controls.
