Some more progress.

Well all the track on the left side of the plan is complete up to the red lines. All of the roadbed through Duryea is installed, and just waiting for a order of switches to keep moving forward.

Also making progress on the engine project again.

And it Begins...Part II

Roadbed is cut and risers installed on the first branch line and onto the Wye back to the mainline. Managed to get the first bit of roadbed installed tonight as well, tomorrow should be laying track and running the first section of bus wiring.

The Paint Shop

Some of you might remember the giant paint project I took on a few months ago. Located Here. Turned out....sort of..The replacement colour for Polly S Reading Yellow is listed as Model-flex Railbox yellow, let me tell you, not even close. So into the brake fluid they all went, and stripped back to plastic. Now fast forward a few weeks/months and I am ready to paint again, problem is all my Polly S Reading Yellow I have is almost solid in the bottles. Happened to watch the MRH what's neat video, and saw the part about using an oscillating tool to re shake the paint. Works like a charm!

So with Model-flex Reading Green and Polly S Reading Yellow we are in business! Now I just have to wait for decals to be completed.

And it begins...

Well with work getting back to normal, and my evenings and weekends free. Things are starting to take shape. My birthday recently passed and my oldest bought me gift cards to home depot, so lumber shopping I went.  The first section of bench work up is the branch line to Kingston on the left side of the previously posted track plan. This weekend I am hoping to get the bench work up for the staging yard. And if all goes well my order of track and switches should arrive soon!
