    • It's not much, but it will be low to mid 60's tomorrow so I'm going out to trim the low tree branches that will be in the RR's way.  Guess it is a start.

      Those two are farther away that it appears.  Someday I will expand out off the lower right one.   I might make a removable section to do what you are saying though.

      Thanks,

    • I really like this.

       

      Since your yard is doing double duty as start and end of your run, why not connect those two stubs off the yard to make a continuous loop when you want to run trains, and relax with adult beverages and conversation at the same time?  You can stack bricks on it, when you just went to operate.

    • Working on finalizing my track plan.  I decided to go away from the traditional loop as that is just not what I prefer to do with my RR.  All trains will originate and terminate at the main yard in the lower left of the plan.  The track on the upper part will be more mountainous and make a climb to summit (wye location) before beginning it's decent back to meet the lower line at the loop in the lower right.   Future expansion will take off from that wye.   Here is a sketch of the basic plan, feel free to make CONSTRUCTIVE comments and suggestions.  I have a PDF if anyone wants me to send it to them.  Remember this is an elevated RR, so reaching to the center is something I have to consider.   North is to the bottom of the screen

    • This car has now received a coat of brush on primer, waiting for warmer weather to paint.

    • I'm not, that's why I have buildings in the fore ground.

    • Nice looking backdrop, Ken.  I didn't realize you too were a painter artist.
