The ROCK 3.0: Progress Report 12.25.13

This evening, after an awesome day spent with family and lots of food, I worked on wiring up the signal board for the Utica Interlocking while watching Duck Dynasty.

I will use 2 pole (two leads in (+ & -)), 6 position (only using four) rotary switches. I can turn the rotary switch to one of four signal indications for each signal.  I'm using custom built dual head searchlight signals.  The aspects that I can set are:

Clear - green over red
Approach - yellow over red
Stop - red over red
Approach Diverging - red over yellow

Here are pics of the wired board and rotary switch.

It's expensive to buy the logic boards to control the signals.  My layout is small so I chose using a simpler control method.

- Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all the ROCK fans!  I hope everyone enjoys the day with family and friends.
