Wiring is done

Got the wiring done on both loops now. Wrote a column about how I did it for the July 2015 issue of Model Railroad Hobbyist.

Here is how I used landscape staples to keep wire buried.

Bus in the garden

The first photo shows the wire as it laid on the ground.

In the second photo the trench is dug, the wire placed and the staple started into the ground - look for the shadow of the staple.

The third photo shows the staple seated.

Int the last photo you can see the end of the brush that was used to sweep the dirt back over the wire.
