Free wiring among the modules

In general the cables are arranged similar to the layout - in a star topology without any closed loops. It has to be avoided that the count of plugged connections between the command station and the remote parts of the layout gets too high.
The Loconet-Articles in Hp1 by Mathias Hellmann discribe the mechanical aspect of the wiring (in German)
