    I've got almost all the track completed along two of the walls which is 48 feet of shelves. Did a lot of running trains today, switching the spurs, run-arounds, all that, and I am loving the electromagnets and the turn-out controls. I would guess I am seeing about a 95% success rate with the uncouplers, both the electromagnets and the permanent magnets on the spurs. I found a couple of cars that are not acting properly, I'll have to adjust them. Also having very few, almost zero derailments. Good stuff.

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Great to hear you are up and running and having fun. Sounds like you have a better track record than CN so far this year...! ;)

    Hey Andrew:

    On occasion, I see a CN loco in Houston. And an occasional CN covered hopper. Pretty neat to see them way down here.
