A brisk -31C here this morning, needless to say will not be out much today. Finally stopped snowing, dropped about 45 Centimeters here finally got ahead of it with clearing my parking. On the bright side the day's are getting longer.

Working on a couple of unfinished model projects, which I have put off to long. Laying out yard, looks like I will need to stretch it to at least 10 feet in length, tried to fit it onto a 3 foot by 8 foot sheet of plywood, just to cramped!.

Morning Ken, ouch -31, complete opposite here, a hot 35 degrees today, turned the air-con on when it reached 32 degrees, can say thumbs up air-con fixed, will need it tomorrow 39 degrees and that to Thursday.

Good time to get some projects out the way, I was going to do some work in the ship project today but the computer killed the time, being on Spotify all  afternoon sorting out playlists and a bug in their latest date as usual, have to wait till they fix it. 
Oh yeah I tried the Canadian Club, is a whisky, very nice indeed with dry ginger ale, will get a couple of already mixed bottles.

I have finely levelled the three station modules and approach module car port end, I decided to temporary put down some track platform two and three to set up the Indian Pacific, got to hot today will do that tomorrow morning, take pics and video, long train 28 coaches  split on the platforms.

   

All the modules finely levelled, I decided to save some time and effort in not cutting new legs, I put in paves and old module leg off cuts  in the next pic.






The next pic I decided to improve the points in the  middle double track, swapping an express point with the medium point, passenger go through with ease  







Last pic switching the two points a slight fix up and running again,, now I have to redo the bus wiring again.

Can't wait to run the first passenger train though the points, a while off yet, will get there.

Don't like to have too many pics in a post, a lot of work, this pic with the temporary track down, all up with the temporary track need 24 lengths. The two small points to the right of the pic, the outside point will become a Wye point, the there be three tracks there and the middle track a shunting track, like to plan ahead  and in stages.

 More pics t come tomorrow once the Indian Pacific is set up and there be a video clip of the real train shunting the carriages into the platforms, be fun.
