Lower Level Benchwork Teaser

Additional work cycles have been dedicated to the benchwork requirement remaining for the lower level during the previous weekends' great weather.

Here is a teaser shot showing the beginning of the northern end of Acca yard. Expect a further update soon.

Hamilton Industrial Park Expansion

Operators may recall that there are three industrial spots at Hamilton, two on the south end and one at the end of the switchback lead north of the south spots.

During the ongoing clean up of the basement area, pieces of lumber were evaluated for reuse elsewhere.

It happened that with a bit of trimming, the original plywood subroadbed used to skirt the helix area was a great fit to fill in the area between the industrial spots and the backdrop.

Expect the Vic Smelly treatment of this area in the future.

Signal Update

Signals on the upper level at Hamilton, XR, Milford and South Milford have been installed, lit and tested.

Signals at Doswell are mounted and testing/integration is coming.

Here's a shot of the crossover signals at the North Doswell Control Point to keep you interested.

Signal closet to the camera is a BLMA (now Atlas) modern cantilever bridge. In the background is one of my scratchbuilt creations as signal bridges can't be found at this time.

(Late) May Already?

I am pleased to report that significant progress has been made on the railroad since the last update.

Web content updates, not so much...

I will attempt to try and rectify this in the next few days.
