    Hey all,

    Quick question regarding Digitrax's BDL168 occupancy board.

    The hookup is pretty straight forward, Loconet to the BDL168, then Track feeders to the proper block of track.

    Since feeders in the traditional sense are short 20AWG-ish wire connecting to the DCC bus, my thinking is I will need to run 16 individual "Sub-Buses" from the BDL168 to each block on the layout (to terminal strip). Then from there I would connect the actual track feeders.

    I'm just wondering how others using the BDL168 have their wiring done, and if my thinking is correct on this wiring method.
