Welcome back to the gateway to the weekend! I hope you had a great week and are ready to get some work done with your layout or modules. Last weekend looked like a great weekend with lots of progress, lets continue that theme. Saturday: We are currently in a never-ending cold cycle so it may be another indoor weekend. I'm hoping that maybe by May the sun will come out and so will warmth as I have a list of projects that require the garage. That said, in the morning I will brew up some coffee and work on the N scale layout then switch gears and work on the Falcon. The last mechanical thing I need to do is repair the 2-inch gap between the exhaust manifold and pipe. The previous owner took it to a shop employed by overzealous impact wrench crew members and crammed the two rusty nuts onto the studs. The result was a gap with the nuts so tight that even after a week soaking in penetrating oil would not free them without possibly breaking the studs. The father-in-law got a new tool that will heat up the nuts and we hope will free them so we can clean the studs, clean up the threads and attach the pipe correctly. Once that is done, I'll adjust the carb accordingly. After that, if we are successful, a beer and dinner will be in order. Sunday: Another cold and rainy day. Yes, spring in Illinois rarely makes an appearance. My track from Denver came in after the first shipment had been destroyed by UPS. That means I can start work on the NTrak module. I'll need to remove the old track and carefully de-solder the feeders and re-attach said feeders to the new track. If I'm successful with getting all the track down, I'll return to work on the N scale layout. I need to install feeders on the other module then start laying out the three spurs. I'm almost done with track work which means next week I can build the DCC bus line and possibly run trains. So how about you? What do you have planned for the last weekend of April? Let us know. We'll assemble again on Monday, May 1st, Mayday! Until then, have a great weekend, be safe and as always... High Greens!
