Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend and accomplished a lot. Let's get started. Friday: As predicted, I left work early around lunch time and started working on the layout. I experimented with gluing .010 plastic shims under individual ties of the code 40 to match up against the code 55 and after some work was pleased with the results. Rather than rush and glue the first spur in before dinner, I fought the temptation and set it aside. I also got the last two Tam Valley Switch boards installed. Saturday: I slept in, got up and made coffee and shuffled myself upstairs to get inspired. After three cups of coffee, I was ready to get cleaned up and start the day. I glued the first spur in that I had set up the night before and then started work on the other two spurs. It was a nice relaxing day, listening to podcasts and taking my time to ensure the track was smooth. By the end of the day, I had both spurs laid down and the one spur had its feeders installed. Since I'll be gone next weekend for the Amherst Railroad show next weekend, I had made reservations to a restaurant I had never been to in Bloomington. We enjoyed a nice quiet meal and each other's company for a few hours before going home and calling it a day. Sunday: Up and at it with coffee and the main task was to install bus lines for both the DC and DCC lines, then start installing feeders to the bus line. Since the layout is made of two modules, I use Anderson Power Poles to electrically connect the two modules. With this in mind I tried various methods of mounting both bus lines. By noon I had come up with a solution and started installing the feeders as well as the Tam Valley servos to the bus line. It is slow going as I test each section of track before going on. By dinner time I had installed all but one set of feeders on the first module. Almost got to run a train but that will now have to wait until I get back from Amherst. So how about you? What did you get done this weekend? Let us know. We'll return again on Friday the 26th to start the process all over again. As mentioned before, I'll be at Amherst with the Athearn crew next weekend, so please be patient with the upload on this coming weeks Weekend Modeling Plans thread as well as next Monday's Weekend Modeling Accomplishments thread as the schedule is tight when I'm on the road for shows. Until then, have a good week, stay safe and as always... High Greens!
