CTC Panel

Posted by ROCK MILW
on Tuesday, March 26, 2019
Here's my new CTC panel for my freelanced Muscatine area Rock Island HO layout. I designed and built the CTC panel and signals using components from Control Train Components (metal cover plates), Logic Rail Technologies (LEDs and bezels), Dallee Electronics (current sensing detectors), Alkem Scale Models (signal bridges) and Custom Signal Systems (US&S TP-5 signals and dwarf signals.) The system is now up and running on my double-track mainline. The CTC panel controls a set of crossovers and yard lead switches in Muscatine. I have wired it such that the signals respond correctly when I throw a power-controlled turnout and line the signal for the movement. When the turnout controls are in their Normal positions, the signals operate automatically in ABS mode.

It really looks amazing at night, with all the lights aglow and the track occupancy lights moving across the panel. I've attached some photos. Brian Davis, Saint Paul, MN
