    I give up building my turnouts:oops:. It was ok when I was planning the changes to my layout, when I was sitting at my work table building them, but when it came to laying the ties and installing them ( and thinking about the 20 I still have to build ) I find I don't have the patience. I was checking every five minutes to see if the glue was dry yet. Then I would get in a hurry before the glue dried and mess up the tieswall1.

    So I have gone back to using the Atlas cl's I have.

    I want my layout operating now!

    Ack! Sorry to hear about that Loren.

    The waiting is the hardest part. It's like you complete a step then have to wait 24 hours before moving on with the next one. I hear your pain. Things have not been progressing to well on my end either which is why I haven't updated in a bit. I mean, the trackwork is slowing coming together...I just don't have the inclination or the patience to spend any considerable amount of time on it. I think its about time to walk away from it for a while and then come back to it. I've been modeling steady for the last 4 1/2 months roughly...time to take a break. Once I get the double slip in, I'm calling it a day for a while.

    Tetters, I don't blame you. We all need to take a break once in awhile.
