Salt Grass Short Line Extra

Rate this Entry
Greetings, Nscalers and welcome back to the blog page update for the end of February.

A short and productive month on the short line. Basic preparation of the plywood supporting panel complete, along with an attached operating shelf. While it was flipped on its backside attaching the shelf, affixed a power strip to get that off the floor. Once it got all put together it appears adequate to support the layout and scenery. Now the ball is in Sharon's court to develop and present her track and scenery plan.

Anxious to begin operations on the short line. Got on board, so to speak, by beginning and fulfilling the short line's first 'official' train order, No. 003. Named the 'Big Day Extra', it was a birding excursion out of Winnie Switch interchange south down Bolivar Peninsula to the premier birding location of Roll Over Pass. Consist was an old-time combine coach and the newly acquired old-time gondola. Pusher locomotive the 0-6-0/Prairie tender combo from the Christmas set. An actual 30mi distance at Nscale 30mph speed. Compressed the time to an 8 minute run.

Thanks for looking in. Cheers. arnold
