    I finally borrowed a camera tonight and have 7 shots of the layout (such as it is).
    I have not had much time this summer to work on it.

    Now I just have to remember how to upload pictures :D

    In the mean time, they are on the website under "Gallery".

    Thanks all.
    As to the camera, I am doing some contract work for our hometown Radio Shack up here. The owner, let me sign out on loan a 2.1 Megapixel camera, this weekend I will be able to try a 3MP one. I will keep working up the price range until I find one I really like [:D]

    I will try to get a better "overall" view of the layout with the better camera.

    As for working on the layout, I wanted to finish ALL the cork and subroadbed before I laid the track. Unfortunately my next day off is not until Wednesday, so no more work until then.

    Just a note that most of the mainline is actually 2" above the bench, I am trying to simulate the tracks being higher than the river level. If you remember the trackplan, the river meanders in and out of the first 4 modules.

    As of today, the rails have all been laid on the CVR. Only the turntable spurs have to be completed, but all the mainline and sidings are down. All the various feeder wires are hanging below the bench.

    Now comes the hard part, how to wire this thing up so it will work...
    This I know nothing about. :D

    Thanks Andrew and Val.

    now I have to find a good website that tells me how to wire using the DC block system.
