:thankyousign:
This is a very thorough document Laurence which I'm sure will help many to demystify their modelling electrics...... great work.
As a retired technical training designer, I applaud the level at which you have pitched the detail and targeted it to the "average" modeller.

However, those who still find it too complicated may find this flowchart could suffice



There does seem to be an infinite loop in your flow chart, Dave.  One of these days I will dig out my economic bar flow chart, not that it's anything to do with model railways or electrics. 

But thaks for the flow chart suggestion.  I had thought about it, but thought it would be too difficult to create on the forum in a useful format.  If I create a PDF I should be able to sumarise the whole process in a flow chart.
With kind regards
Laurence

Ha ha... You're quite Lawrence, infinite loops are technically a no no. Also, that key element of "go for a cup of tea" is missing.
Joking aside, however, you are creating a great guide......move over Cyril Freezer  :claphappy:

If it looks right, it probably is right.

Thanks once again, Laurence. You are moving into "over my head" territory here, but the sequence of checks is obviously very logical, so if ever I should need it, I'm sure I could follow what you say and come up with a solution.

Great stuff.

Cheers,

Chris

"I hope to be able to write another section on DCC specific issues at some time in the near future."

Looking forward to that too Laurence, as I'll probably need that if I ever get the track finished!

Cheers  :beers:
