Welcome back everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend and got a lot accomplished. Let's dive in! Saturday: As planned, or not planned, I got up from a nice winters nap and started the day by brewing up a fresh pot of coffee on the stove. I then wandered into the train room. My N scale shadowbox project has sat dormant for almost a year and since it was too cold to work in the garage for the backdrop of the HO layout, I worked on the N scale layout. Friday, I had covered one of the two three foot long, former T-Trak modules with 1/8-inch cork sheet. I used the scrap cork from the roll to cover the second and tweaked the track plan ever so much after looking at two new books I purchased about the B&M. The day went by fast and soon it was time to take the wife out for a nice quiet dinner. We had a nice time and talked a lot about some planning for the next few years before heading home and retiring for the evening. Sunday: I slept in, made a pot of coffee on the stove and had breakfast. The wife indicated that the router would need to be replaced. Imagine my shock, I thought it was a buy it once and you're done. Ah not so with a digital universe. So, after working on the N scale layout for a bit we went to the big box electronics store, got sticker shock for said digital thinga ma jig, went home, installed it and had internet working very nice again. Back to the layout and I carefully laid track on the module, including installing a servo turnout control using a slightly different method than I had used in the past. By supper I had track drying. It may not look like much, but I want the turnouts to be flawless in operation, so I spent a lot of time on installing and checking the Tam valley servo controls and the Micro Engineering turnouts. A good weekend overall. So how about you? What did you accomplish in the train room or shop? Let us know. We'll assemble again on Friday, January 27th to start the process all over again. Until then, have a great week, be safe, stay healthy and as always... High Greens!
