    There are some control panel threads here on Nscale.net. Here is one of them:

    If you search Google for model railroad control panel you will find many web pages. After performing the search, click on Images (near the top of the Google results page) to see hundreds of photos of control panels.

    Here's a couple I don't think I've posted in other threads. I create the panels in Adobe Illustrator and print them as photo prints, and use super 77 spray adhesive to attach them to the painted fascia. I add dots for the toggle drill holes.

    I haven't worked on my layout in a while even though it has progressed more since these pics, but this is the control panel I built for my layout.
