New electrical panel

Now that the plants are a landscape and most of the story is complete, several BAGRS members have wanted to add lighting and other animation to the Roving Garden Railroad.  If you go back several pages in this blog, you'll find that we installed plenty of conduit and wire to 5 locations on the edges of the trailer to enable future wiring of lights, smoke units or whatever to the 12-volt battery. Until now none of the wires had been connected to the battery. What makes it easier to install these items now is an easy-access panel installed by Jacques on the side of a metal building over the battery on the tongue. At present we can throw the waterfall switch to instantly see the water flow. Same for the mine train, point to point in the tunnel. The only light at present is the campfire. In the future you can wire up some fun to an existing switch.
