    Finally got out to the shed to do some work on the layout during the week. Finished cutting the plywood sub road bed for the framed portion of the lower deck including the loop. Then cut some 1/2" foam and laid out a Kato double track oval to run some trains. The inner loop is DC powered by a MRC Tech II controller. The outer loop is wired to my Digitrax DCS50. The photo with the trains on the tracks are two different units. It just looks like it's 1 long train nose to tail. I spent most of Sunday afternoon just watching both trains going around and around in opposite directions.

    By the way, for those who may not know, when you click on the thumbnails in a post, it expands to a larger pic. If you click on the larger pic itself again, it expands further to full screen. From full screen click on the back button to escape. Just thought I'd put that out there as I've seen a lot of complaints about the thumbnails attached to posts.

    Moose no knew why people complain ... Thought everyone knew this, but perhaps not?

    Wrong kind of progress here. I have been dislocated!

    Just down the hall, to the less desirable of our two spare rooms, to make room for my gf's fabric-selling business. She does have a point in that she is making money and I am spending it. But it does mean I'll have to get a window AC unit for the summer.

    If you slightly edit the picture, mild crop for example, and save change, it will be upright when you upload it. Most forum software ignore the gyroscopically determined up for the fixed up reference using instead the physical reference, so anything in landscape comes out laid over 90 degrees. Doing the edit with crop creates a new up reference.
    at least that is what I do.
