Where's that pic of the yard goat?
Woohoo! I just completed the frog feeders and point feeders on the 27' and 21' shelves. All tied in, wired up, and soldered. Glad that is done. For the other 21' shelf, I will get the switches wired up before I install them.
Another note, the P2K GP30 pulled 50 six ounce cars without a hitch. Man, that thing is AWESOME.
Well I went camping this weekend so no DIRECT modeling done. However, My dad and I picked up some Plexiglass and other stuff so as to make walls to prevent a, scale drop of 251 plus feet
Well, here's pictures of what I did this weekend. The first one is a before of my engine area.
The second one is an after. I added a track for steamer service. My steamer is too big for the Atlas turntable, so I will put a loco shed there. The track the switcher is sitting on was moved over, and that will either be a rip or a caboose track. The water tank isn't done, maybe tonight.
I even put track into the roundhouse and wired that in. My 2-6-6-2 doesn't fit, I put her there by hand just for the picture.
Lookin good Loren!
I attended a conference on Saturday & I knew we had Sunday afternoon set aside for yardwork, so I purposely didn't plan to do too much model work this weekend.
However, on Thursday and Friday, I DID finish finish a loco kitbashing project (see http://www.the-gauge.com/showthread.php?t=27985) and I did get a chance to operate my trains for an hour or so on Friday night.
Your pics & progress look great, Grewsome.
This was an incrediblibly busy weekend, 2 soccer games, kite festival, birthday parties. But inbetween all that, I finally connected the board to the module I am working on and glued the cork down. I have started building the passenger station for it, but the main building looks a little hard so I build the platforms first. When I get a little more done I will start a thread on it. But, all-in-all, I guess it was a productive train weekend.
Thanks to everyone who posted on my thread. Looking forward to seeing more pics of the projects yall have going.
