Umm who forgot the wire??

As I add rail I have been dropping feeders every place I have a rail joiner. Being as this section in a Free-Mo piece I want to make sure It has good conductivity. It was going so well and things were going so smoothly right up until my 20 gauge wire ran out. I did get quite a bit done in the way of track and even got my crossovers all modified. I plan on getting some more wire Monday and should have it all running by next weekend. I will go ahead and hook up my buswire and may even hook up a tortoise or two.

I got a great book from Kalmbach on how to paint backdrops. Here is what I got done today. I still have all the forgoround to do but I think it is looking good.

Crossover...a good idea

Well, after I had compelted the cork I was looking at my drwaings and  figured out I could move my crossovers onto the module. So I tore up some of my cork and redid some of my CVMW ties strips. Although it was a pain to go backwards I think it was well worht it. I should have all the ties  done by next week. So here is what we have....

Benchwork ALL DONE

I completed all the becnhwork today and was evne able to get all the cork roadbed down. I have a little rasping to do and then I will give everything a coat of paint and try to get some CMVW tie strips glued down this week. If everything will goes well I should be able to have all the track in place in a couple of weeks. Wiring should be pretty easy as there is only one switch to wire and the rest is straight through. I have eliminated one switch in my plan due to space restraints and a slight change in the operations.

With REAL wood floors

I have been  working on the Tum-A-Lum lumber company and will be focusing on the interior of the structure. I added flooring today made from strip wood to really enhance the feeling of the building. I also worked on the ceiling but have not completely figured out what exactly I am going to do.
