Welcome everybody to the gateway to the weekend. It sounds like I was not the only one to purchase a portable air conditioner last week as temps here were 100 degrees s or more. I hope you all stayed safe and cool. Congrats to rray on his well-earned Master Model Railroad achievement award, lots of great modeling and it is all in Z! It looks like we were busy last weekend so let's see what we have planned for the coming weekend. Friday Night: Over the past week I got a fair amount of progress done on the NTrak module. I got the blue, yellow and red lines down and last night, I filled in gaps with ties on the areas around rail joiners and where I soldered my feeders. It occurred to me that I have not used Atlas Code 80 track in 20 years! I switched to Code 55 the same year Atlas came out with theirs. I hope to paint and ballast the track tonight so that it can dry overnight. Saturday: If I am successful with ballast, I have a list. If not, my morning will be spent ballasting. I have one more coat of poly I need to apply to the fascia after a finish sanding of coat two and then that should be done. I need to build the three bus lines and wire up my three lines and then I should have three running mainlines within the NTrak specifications. Basic scenery will follow as well as work on a skyboard. While things are drying, I'll be mowing and hopefully building a carrier for the Wrangler so I can haul my module safely. Sunday: For the dads out there, Father's Day! That means Car Show! Finally get to go to one now. I'll need to get up early for the one hour drive up north to get the Mustang CA/GT out of storage and meet my father-in-law at a local car show. It is at a roadside pub that serves breakfast so after some coffee and breakfast, we'll walk around and admire the cars and trucks. After that Ang is taking us to lunch for Father's Day with some friends that will join us. After that, I hope to start fine tuning the module and getting it completed as I'm less than a week away. It's nice that it feels like old times again. So how about you? What do you have planned for this Father's Day weekend? Let us know. We'll assemble on Monday the 20th to see how we all did. Until then, have a great weekend, be safe, stay healthy and... Happy Father's Day & High Greens!
