Wiring Diagrams

Below are a few wiring diagrams that I have put together that might be useful for others building a layout for the first time. Since my layout is entirely traditional DC controlled, the diagrams I have included are all based on DC circuits, even though some may be integrated or combined with a DCC layout.
 
The first five diagrams show how to add more advanced operation and features to your layout using electrical products from Atlas. The last two diagrams include a master wiring schematic of my entire layout and control panel, as well as an IC schematic for my traffic light controller.

Wiring schematic for Ty’s Model Railroad
MY LAYOUT - MAIN SCHEMATIC
This drawing shows the current main wiring schematic for my model. It includes all electrical components, wire leads, indicator lights, switches, and resistors. This diagram is accurate and is an exact representation of my wiring, both in my control box and on my layout.
 
Wiring diagram for traffic light controller circuit
TRAFFIC LIGHT CONTROLLER CIRCUIT
This schematic is directly based on Rob Paisley's 20 Output Sequencing Circuit, which I constructed for my own layout's traffic lights. For more information on how this circuit functions and is constructed, please visit Rob's site here.
