Most Current Image

I hope it survives the trip.


This is the current state of the layout.

All the wiring is 100% complete. I have put the wire cutters away, there is nothing left to do. It was operational 2 weeks ago, but still needed a lot of little tweaks, the last of which I finished today.

It runs far better than I had expected. The locomotive performs great! I will post more about that after the train show.

Next, I need to make a temporary connection between the layout and the carfloat so I can operate that, I have a precarious connection there now. I would also like to make a mock up of the freight house, will see if I have time for that or not.

But at least it is working, and for the most part ready for the show.

geez, look at the time….

    Been following this from the beginning, great, great work. You MUST have the freighthouse mock-up done by NMRA! And while you’re at it, maybe a photomural backdrop of NYC!
