Hi Bob, all
Please don't hold your breath - we are probably 6 months away at least from being fully exhibition ready. We had some layout "misbehaviour" problems at the Convention that prevented the "pretty's" like layout skirting and and some other display items from going out onto the layout.

So we still have some more trouble to "shoot", but we were running the full operations at about 1/2 capacity.

Post convention, we are concentrating on building the final buildings for the mine. There is still also one other module that needs more vegetation (aka rainforest).

Dan Pickard got some photos of the layout being set up at the convention. See https://www.flickr.com/photos/146324467@N05/albums/72157690927955603/page2
New buildings include the Lamp House, Weigh Cabin, Workshop (cutaway to show interior). The Boiler on the V block is to be bricked in as part of the yet-to-be-built Powerhouse building.

Now back to "potholing" the layout build history - still only another 8 modules to go...
