    Got the roadbed realigned and turnouts positioned for the latest former TimeSaver portion. Waiting on Xuron rail nippers to arrive tomorrow to put track down.

    Okay, track laid but needs to be cleaned (some sat for 15 years in an unheated garage) and turnout controls added before testing. upload_2019-2-4_12-45-46.jpeg

    Two months have gone by. After fruitless attempts to get my 5'x5' section of old layout from my son's to our house, I cut about 10" off one side yesterday (where the continuation of the yard was), and loaded the now two pieces into my van by myself so I would be assured of being able to get it out on my own when I got home. Last night my wife helped me get it onto the table, and today got it spliced back together, fastened down, and leveled.

    And finally, some more progress. Got my wood to lift the modified TimeSaver to the same height as the main board. Making the L-girders today. The first picture is of two pieces with glue applied waiting to be temporarily screwed together. I found it interesting that these 1x2s were exactly .75"x1.5" with sharp corners unlike the old ones.

    And then the 3 sets of L-girders waiting to dry and the rough cut legs.

    Ahh!! L-Girders, one of the best things to use to support a layout. Keep up the good work.

    Table fastened, leveled, and attached to large section! Yippee, progress. Still need to fix and/or replace track on large section and redesign the yard on the black section.
    Here is a short (not too good) video that has sound, but only the ticking of the wall clock! lol
