My trains sadly are still in their delivery boxes (from Trainworld). I have recently had eye surgery on both of my eyes (cataracts) and the recovery time is unfortunately much longer than anticipated.
Currently I have a (in On30) Shay, a Climax and a Mogul and I have also purchaesd two Heislers in HO scale to convert to On30 . I have downloaded Paul Templar's instructions on how to converrt an HO Heisler to On30. I figured that was better than two Porters for yard work.
Attached is a photo of the status of my train room (14+ feet by 18+ feet). A former next door neighbour (and all around really good guy) has done the wiring (he's an electrician) and I'm ready for the dry wall. I will do that when my eyes are completely recovered. With a little bit of luck I will be starting construction of the Kettle Valley Railway in September. Pictures will be available for those with nothing better to do than watch a fumbling wanna be.
I must warn you that I'm really anal about my work and redo things many times over just to make it the way I want it. On the other hand, I'm not nearly as accomplished as the rest of you..........YET !
