-The layout is being controlled by MERG CBUS and DCC modules.  It will be controlled using route selection from a single control panel and one or two CANCABs will be used for loco control.\\+
  
-We just missed the Southampton show, despite an extra session working on the control system. The scenic section is a complicated layout with three interconnected reversing loops using DCC unfriendly points, so accurate timing and sequencing is required to avoid shorts.\\+<WRAP hide>
