We first measured how much of each bus-wire was needed and cut it too length. We are using 14 gauge wire for the bus wires. Norm pitched in and held one end and Aiden used a drill to twist the wires together. A lot easier than twisting the pairs of wires by hand!!

Once we had a bus pair of wires twisted together, Aiden crawled under the layout (he could almost stand!) and put the wires in the plastic clips that we had screwed to the bottom of the layout.

He was a big help because I would have to have crawled under the layout on my hands and knees!

We have started to lay track so future posts will focus on the track work and installing feeder wires onto the track sections and connecting them to these bus wires.
