Mark,

Glad to see things are again energized. Great recent progress and look forward to seeing the results of this upcoming weekend.

Amazing/scary what that South Jersey gang can do. Maybe you should put a warning on your progress pictures, "don't try this at home, depicted work is supervised by professional steam nut"

Matt, to some extent, I think he is! Poor guy. I think he is 'helixed out'! However, the good news is, his job is ALMOST complete!

Yes, Steam stopped by last night and was determined to get the final loop installed. I was already at work painting benchwork when he arrived and I noticed that the man was talking to himself. Not a good sign. So I kept about my business, finishing painting the underside of the upper level benchwork white. I'm please to announce that I completed this project as well, so we are now officially ready to begin installation of roadbed on the upper level.

So, while I was getting that done, I was also helping Bruce accomplish his task - getting the last loop done on the helix. After a little swearing and mumbling, we managed to install the final pieces of the helix!

As can be seen from the picture, Bruce is rejoicing!

So the next (and final) step is installing the subroadbed for the Glen Burn complex. This area will be located on the second level and will not only cover the helix on the upper level, but will also act as the transition piece between the helix and second level.



Congrats Bruce! It looks great!


Mark

Nice job on the helix. I feel your pain. The last bit is a joy to get done because you don't have to build it again!

Congratulations Mark and Bruce on getting the helix finished.

As you think, so will you be.

I love that clip. Maybe I can get water to go up the helix between the two tracks! Maybe even working track pans too. Can't wait to see double headed 2-10-0"s working up that thing, Its going to be great.

Joe, I love that episode of the Three Stooges! And yes, now that you mention it, it sort of does remind me of Bruce building that thing!

Now, as for track pans on a grade? Well, there's this thing called 'gravity', and something else called the 'law of physics'. Bruce, your the man and I've seen you pull off some miracles, but this one? Next thing you know, we will be calling him Moses!

Baffles in the track pans and water scoops on the tenders that bounce up and down like those birds in the gift shop -- in and out of the glass.
