Completed of installing the Bridge and associated track each side, so the Mainline is complete and the Golden Spike as been driven.





Other work was installing the Boosters along with power wiring, also got comm. wiring from the command station to the first two booster and the wireless working. With a couple of jumpers I got to run a train for a short distance.





Also had my first group local N Scale MRR to visit the layout Saturday.

Very nice Dwyane...I'll bet you're spending a bunch of time operating rather than messing with pesky scenery right now! LOL
I know how it is.
