Well back at it, another work week about to start for most of us. How did you do this past weekend? I had one of my typical retail weekends, off Friday, full day Saturday, off Sunday. Friday was my modeling day however. I started by heading to Bloomington for some future work related stuff, then took a trip down Route 66 to my not so local hobby shop to look at decoders for a few of my locomotives. It was a good thing I stopped in. For a few months now I have been telling you all about the Tam Valley servo turnout controls. Well my shop is selling a blister pack that includes the singlet board and decoder, the manual push button switch and a servo already mounted to a slick wood bracket complete with a slide switch that allows me to power my Atlas code 55 frogs. Cool! I was amazed at the price of only $25.00 and knowing I had two turnouts on my first module, I went ahead and picked up two packs. After talking DCC and trains for a few hours, I headed home and found that both Jared and Angela were headed out separate ways to do their own things which meant I was alone and had the house to myself. I went straight to the layout and installed my first turn out kit. The first is always takes the longest but now that I have all the bugs worked out, the next one will get installed faster. I was pleased with the end result and look forward to getting the other one installed. Saturday was work and nothing was accomplished. Sunday was a nice day relaxing with family and enjoying a good meal. Overall a nice weekend. So how about you? How did you fare this Holiday weekend? Let us know what you did. We'll assemble again on Friday the 10th and do it all over again. Until then, have a great week and as always... High Greens!
