OK Let's crack on!
Leiretown II is growing quickly. Is really small, space constraints are in place, so a 4x2 ply board was used. In this relatively small space I have placed a double loop, a return loop and a couple of sidings.
A really simple design directly lifted from here:
Iberama 560 set from IBERTREN, with an additional siding parallel to the return loop
The panel controls all the turnout motors with three buttons, my friend the Arduino is under it still controlling points and signals, 5 of them each.
Now ballasting is in progress. I have benefited from all the sufferings I endured during the construction of the first Leiretown, this has allowed me to plan carefully and do the electronics FIRST, not last as I did before, and place conveniently the servo motors under the board, which is much easier and reliable. First train runs are quite going quite nicely, with the only problem being that I have put in place quite hard climbs to allow the tracks to go over the return loop in such a short space.
Something has to be sacrified anyway... still wishing for a decent space some day!
Now a few pictures and a shorty video:
