Wonderful idea.  I love how you got power up to the shell using the brass tabs.  I have installed LEDs into some of my older shells and the disconnect is a pain when I remove the shell.  May I steal your ideas please? 
I actually built my DCC command module using a clone Arduino Uno Rev 3 board, a clone Arduino Motor Shield, and Raspberry Pi 4.  I bought the hardware off Amazon and Adafruit, software was off Aduino, Raspberry, and JMRI (Controller software).  There are a few videos you can use for this.

I saw this thing on YouTube and thought "Why not?"  It works well.  I am able to program my locomotives, etc.  I have not added control to my switches yet.

The whole thing cost me a total of about $100....and I get to use the Raspberry Pi for other things as well  :)

Good luck and have fun!
