Hi

The 2 boxcars are the battery and electronics cars,
ie. dead rail, so they are necessary!

I hope to land some sort of job this winter,
so that I might buy 10-20 pieces of rolling stock.
 
I expect to be setting the final pieces of tile on the tunnel portals this evening,
so pictures of those will be posted today or tomorrow.

The portals are finished.  The thinset/grout has to dry for 7 days before they can installed outside.

Hi

Been busy with the electronics this winter,
finally back to working outside on the track. 

Tore almost everything up,
and restarting with a "loose" prototype of Omaha Union Station.

Cheyenne will become a signpost down the line.

Have installed all the track planks on the trestle,
and as much track as I currently have.
