More LocoNet Components

One of my projects today: I'm finally building a LocoNet cable tester. This is a design created for FREMO. While putting the kit together, I watched more footage from yesterday's NMRAx event.

There isn't a whole lot of space on the circuit board, and orientation of a couple parts is not obvious from the board, so it's important to follow the instructions carefully. I hot-glued the LocoNet sockets into the box and added more screws for additional stability.

I also used the opportunity to build LocoNet boxes by HOfine. These are commonly used at FREMO modular meets for plugin throttles. I put the cable tester to good use on the boxes.
