The Quadopus Takes Form

It's not finished, but I'm making progress on a box for my DCC
system. It has a Digitrax DCS200 command station and, hidden
underneath, a PM42 power monitor card that provides outputs
for four separate power districts via the blue/white Power Pole
connectors. Two connections for the Loconet cables are also
available for the throttle connections.
The lid will mount on lift-off hinges, so there is no danger of it
slamming shut while in operation, damaging cables.
Not real pretty, but the 3/4" plywood should make it very
sturdy for portable use at shows.
