      Any ideas of when calendars may need to be marked?  Finger Lakes Live Steamers Fall Open House is the 24th-26th of September and so is the Bluestone Southern OPs.  Just letting you know about those dates.

      No idea yet, but I'll keep those dates in mind.  Lots of things going on here vying for attention, so work on the RR is sporadic.

      In between all the rain, I got some more work done on the Williamsport rebuild yesterday.  

      Here you can see where they warehouse goes (lower left, will have tracks on both sides now, plus the pipe dealer spur in the center) and the lead for the car ferry on the right.

       

      A look back at the warehouse trackage.

      This is just getting track down.  I dont have the spare time to move the switch throw to the other side at the moment.

      Something I learned during the 1978 BRAC strike while stationed at N&W's Bellevue hump yard in Bellevue, OH.  The real roads sometimes have trouble placing switch throws due to tight track clearances.  Their solution is to locate the throw as much as a track or two away, and reach the switch via running the throw rod through a conduit.

       

      Just something to consider.  In OO/HO, I used plastic coffee stir sticks for conduit.  Brass tubing probably works best for large scale.

       

      Best wishes, David Meashey

      "1978 BRAC Strike" - I remember that day.  Only unauthorized day off in 16 years of working for the railroad.  Really, only unauthorized day off in 50 years of earning an income.

      Hey Dave, I'll thank you for your comment, my grey matter had totally misplaced the piece of information.  However, I do still remember who the villain was in the Beach Blanket Movies.  Eric Von Zipper, played by Harvey Lembeck.  Why would anyone remember useless cr#p like that?
