 We are assisting in rebuilding one of the Southampton MRS exhibition layouts to enhance its operational capabilities and possibly add some animations.\\ We are assisting in rebuilding one of the Southampton MRS exhibition layouts to enhance its operational capabilities and possibly add some animations.\\
-All the points have now been converted to servo operation. ​ We are adding ToTIs as we convert the track wiring to DCC.  ​The layout ​control will be by CBUS and DCC by MERG DCC.\\ +The layout ​is being controlled ​by MERG CBUS and DCC modules A single ​control ​panel has been built and one or two CANCABs will be used for loco control.\\ 
-Once we have got it reliably running, we hope to add JMRI on a Raspberry Pi 3B to add smart phone throttle ​control and control ​panel using a tablet.\\ +At the August ​workshop we continued adding and wiring the MERG modules ​to the scenic section ​and started ​setting up the point servos, using the FCU.\\ 
-At the March workshop we agreed ​to use route selection to control ​the layout ​and started the procurement of components and MERG modules ​for the control system. The new rear section ​with storage and a reversing loop has added 16 more points ​to be controlled.\\ +All the MERG modules ​have now been installed on the scenic section and wiring up continues.\\

 +Any help would be appreciated as we hope to have it ready for the Southampton show in January 2020.\\ 
 +We can work on it at other times when the club room is open.\\
