 +^^^^By Peter Giling ^^^^
 +===== Introduction =====
 +
 +
 +A fine way of making a larger Railroad setup, is using modules.\\
 +On our Modelrailway Club in Venlo (NL), called MGV, we are no exception.\\
 +These modules are moveable, also to shows, and easy to acces for every detail while construction is going on.\\
 +For coupling of railpower and a low current (it is all leds !) 12 or 16V we use a simple connector board.\\
 +Each side of these modules has this board installed, and short 5 wire cables are used for interconnection.\\
 +On the module itself, ​ these boards are interconnected.\\
 +Installation of a large setup is now pretty simple.\\
 +Just running LocoNet cables from one module to the next,(we are using GCA LocoNet network for many years already on three large layouts)\\ ​
 +and the 5 wire cable from above and all connections are settled.\\
 +This board is a D.I.Y. project, no boards available.\\
 +Board is single sided and on Eurocard PCB contains 10 items.\\
 +You can make your own standard of how and which connections are made and used.\\
 +
 +===== The prototype =====
 +
 +|  {{:​gca:​gca01_pict01.png?​400}} ​ |  A large amount of these boards have been made already. ​ \\  It never came to a professional made board, ​  ​\\ ​ they are all home-made like on picture, and working fine.  \\  This board is  single sided D.I.Y. only, and not avalable from GCA.  |
