Well for anyone who has been following along you probably have noticed the lack of photos or progress. I have been on hold due to work and received news today that I will be transferring in the next week to Oklahoma City. So the Bend layout will be coming down and parts saved for the move. The backdrop will need to be removed and the wall repaired. It is going to be a busy couple of weeks!!!

I have finished the Brooks Scanlon lead all the way to the mainline. This includes installing the track that will be for the woodchip loader. I still have not wired anything but cars roll well over the completed section. I also extended the Brooks Willamette spur track.

Well the track gang has finished laying track into the Brooks Willamette particle board plant. This track will hold between 3 and 5 cars depending on the car type. Boxcars will be the main car type used but I may have a few bulkhead cars to stick in every once in awhile.
