      If I don't get radio problems sorted out C-19 may not be making an appearance this year.  BUT I have two weeks to figure it out.

       

      FTFY....

      Sure. 

      The first one(light brown) is Mathesons Cold Storage,(named after Doug Matheson of IPP&W fame) it can be accessed from here or on the other side near the Interchange Track. The next one is Foley Fast Freight(Named after Terry Foley and the eastern subsidiary of the one on the Port Orford RR). Next one is Bellamy's RailRoad supplies, named after Gord Bellamy of IPP&W fame. These are the only industries serviced from the yard.

      The rest are just the backs of buildings that run along the street parallel to the yard. No names on those.(yet)

      I had my BIL over on Sunday to show off my latest work in the basement and he immediately figured out my radio problem just by looking at the stick positions.  Seems a piece of dried leaf had got inside and was getting wedged in the gimbals causing random right stick positions to be sent which drove the RailBoss board and the sound system nuts. Opened it up, cleaned it out and now it's good as new.   Since it was there last the radio components and sound system have been upgraded and it has a new MTO battery from Don Sweet. Should perform better than last time!

       

      BTW - Do you have more roadbed to build?  I have been hording 3/4" x 1.5" PVC strips for spline that I cut from scrap at work.  I can't fit anything over about 42" long in the car, but can bring a bundle if you can use them.

      Thanks for the offer Jon, but I think this is it for any more roadbed. Besides, I still have a couple of pieces in the garage.

      Ken, you always need a stockpile for that next expansion.

      Exactly ...that is why I'm hopefully gonna make this ops session so I can off the ladders I already have built but no use for ....thinking the "Old Goat" will make use of them for switching expansion. He says he won't now but since they are already built it may change his mind.

      Gee, poultry that lives in glass coops shouldn't be throwing stones.
