I began building my N-Scale model railroad in 2006.  For the next 7 years I worked regularly building models, laying track, working on scenery and building structures.

My railroad, the Piedmont and Eastern Carolina Railroad (PECR), is a fictional railroad set in the Coastal Plains of North Carolina in the 1960's.  Based around he fictional town of Waynesville, North Carolina, the PECR had nearly 300 pieces of rolling stock, about 800 linear feet of N-Scale dual-mainline track, 60 steam and diesel locomotives, aproximately 80 turnouts, and about a dozen businesses for the railroad to service.  Turnouts were remotely operated by Tortoise machines mounted underneath the layout, and turnout position was indicated on a 10 x 6 control board with red or green LED's indicating the turnout was either open or closed.

The PECR was powered by a 16 volt AC bus of 12 gauge stranded copper wire that ran underneath the layout and was operated with Digitrtax wireless digital control system.  Feeder wires fed the mainline track every 4 feet to avoid power sag.  Lights and accessories were powerd from a 12 volt DC bus of 12 gauge copper wire that ran underneath the layout, and LED's were used in the place of incadescent lamps where possible.
