Starting Electrical

Tonight I started wiring up the SBT.  I am taking my time to try to do an organized good job with it.  First step was the onboard controls.  I took a 4 conductor wire with ground, wrapped the ground with shrink tape, and soldered to the switches.  Three wires for the speed pot and two for the direction.

Done for the night I will now spend some time thinking about which order the components have to be placed in the center tray to end up with the most organized mess.  My next loco is going to have a lot more room and a lot less features.
