I have made a decision as to what to do about the destroyed trestle.  Though I have been reluctant to head for the basement and view the carnage.

I am going to pull out the remains of the trestle, put in a length of sub-roadbed, and lay track across the valley.  I will model a retaining wall on the down slope side of the track.

I want to get trains running again and the thought of spending another six months to a year building a new trestle is not attractive.  

But the next big project is my shop.  I have acquired a really nice Atlas 618 lathe and I bit the bullet and bought the LittleMachineShop.com vertical mill.  

I have a lot of clean up and arranging to do before the shop is functional, but once complete it will give me a lot of great model building space.  

Our kitchen project (which has kept me away from modeling) is essentially complete this afternoon, though I need to spend next Saturday finishing up some trim, so I will have more time to devote to modeling.

I apologize for not being around much. And falling down on my duties as a moderator.  
We have had a major, and rather frustrating kitchen project going on.  The railroad hasn't seen much attention, even though I have some major repair work to do as a result of the dripping plumbing.  
I will hang around, but the next big project (after we return from vacation to the east coast) will be my shop.  I have acquired a very nice (older) Atlas 618 lathe and a small vertical mill.  I have been collecting the smaller pieces for a machine shop for years always hoping to get to the point where I could actually set one up.
I am almost there.
