    Thanks for the nice comments.
    The setup is as follows:
    DCS100 and DB150, PM42, BDL162
    DCS100 feeds the loconet for the PM42, BDL162 and soon the DS54.
    PM42 into 4 parts. 3 Short circuit, 1 Autoreverse
    1 PM42 SS section to Zone A and B on BDL162 (mainline) DCS100
    1 Pm42 AR section to Zone C (yard wye) DCS100
    1 PM42 SS section to Zone D (helix and yard throat)DB150
    1 PM42 SS section to rest of nondetected feeds DB150
    The loconet coming from DB150 connects to the 6 port cat 5e box which then can feed 3 other loconet connections, 1 is the locobuffer , the other one feeds the UR91 and all others UR UP panels (currently UP5) and one extra just in case
    The DB150 is set up as a booster.
    JMRI is the software running it all, and the panel was created with JMRI Panel pro.

    I think that covers it all.

    Will post more photos as it progresses.

    Thanks again,

    Too Poor

    It was the easiest part. The hard part was running the wires for the BDL162.

    I have had no problems whatsoever with the computer side of things.

    Thanks again,

    What an eye appealing layout! Like it very much! Can I introduce the pictures to my Chinese buddies?

    We have very limited steam nowadays. (I would not find it in Shanghai, heared it is stilll in use in Northern China)
    The national train system speeded up from Apr. 18 this year. The fastest train could reach around 200KM (don't know how many miles) / hour.
