    Not a fun week for me. This danged thing gave me no end of problems and ultimately turned into a bit of a mess -



    Adding insult to injury, the overhead lighting failed after just one day (inept wiring or something), so I eventually decided to just tear it down and start over from scratch. Hopefully I'll have something better to show for my efforts next week

    Sigh... Looked good to me. I'd be very happy with that! Hope the next one turns out the way you want.

    Simply ran trains while waiting for paint to dry on the new stable door I'm building. Paint a little, run trains. Paint a little, run trains.

    This will make Mr. Moose happy @Moose2013

    repaired Shay, running on new test loop made with flex track instead of sectional. Yes, there is a kink in it, someone without thinking reheated the solder joint to make sure it was still good after hammering the nails in.....

    Got some benchwork done. IMG_20190512_204049404.jpg It is stand alone bout I attached a wood strip to the wall then attached it to the wood strip.

    IMG_20190512_204052693.jpg
    This section was made from the framework from a past layout. That is why I have a patchwork of colors. It is stand alone but also attached to the wall.

    Good grief, I just noticed that the front sign on that overhang is different than the two side signs. That's some nice attention to detail there, Mark

    I guess it's time to fire up the laser printer again - hopefully I can just decal right over the old one.
