The progress is impressive, Rick. So, have you solved your 'visitors' problem?

Great to see the pics Rick, and WOW, you guys are really moving along! That heavy construction is now just a faint memory, right? Well worth the long hard effort I'm sure. It looks great. I can't wait to see more.

All:

I will up-date with pictures of the progress when I remember to bring the camera with me on work nights. Geez, this last weekend I recognized and talked to a grade school classmate that I hadn't seen in 40+ years, but can't remember to bring my camera to the Club to take pictures....short term memory loss, I guess.

I put the camera on top of my toolbox last night so I wouldn't forget it.

Now, let's imagine. What could happen and make you forget it? A sudden telephone call : work session cancelled, we'll just have trains running tonight...

Impressive series of turnouts, Allen. I understand that my joke about a train running session is yet a bit unrealistic, at least in this part of the layout...

Our wiring foreman is setting a goal of limited operations by Christmas.

By Christmas? Wow, you guys are very determined! Great progress though, so who knows! One thing is for sure, your golden spike ceremony, whenever that will be, should be one heck of a celebration after all you guys have been through to get to where you are! Well done! Keep the pics coming.

Phase one of the project is to get track down on the mole and have the main line and industrial spurs in clear around to Shelburn in the new basement. We will have a celebration of sorts when we run the first train out of the Mole to Shelburn, we also plan to erect a temporary staging yard for westbound traffic at the east end of Shelburn, it will be on wheels so as we advance further east we can connect it in. However once we get past Mill City, the elevation increases so the portable staging will be useless. At that point we will push up over the summit and connect with the helix. Once that happens...yes we will have a big golden spike celebration.

An up-date on the progress of the layout. The wiring and trackwork are going hot and heavy. The Pacific Northwest region of the National Model Railroad Association is going to hold a mini meet up-stairs at the community center in late January or early February and they want to tour our layout, so our goal is to have it at least partly operational when they hold their meet so we are busy bees right now. This will also give the club some pubilicity in the region and a source for possible new members.
