Great pictures, Mark and Rick. It looks like everyone was kept pretty busy.

Great photos you guys! Thanks for posting. And....There is nothing wrong with the layout owner getting some throttle time during his own operating session. I wish I could more during mine. Bill.

Guys..thanks for the props.....in the intervening time between the last session and the other night, I hadn't run a single train or touched anything on the layout except the one area I had been working on, just barely managing to finish up the re-staging just as the guys were coming down the steps. I was fully expecting a disaster of the highest magnitude.

Bill, I was just perusing your thread on the recent ops session and was thinking what a great idea that is! As far as getting throttle time on the HTRR, I agree...unfortunately they just don't let me, always citing some obscure rule or regulation they can;t seem to produce in writing....

Writing? You want it in writing? Ok, I'll type it up and hang it on the wall!

So Mr. Harsco, rumor has it that you've been building buildings and adding details, but no updates?

Mark's somewhat obtuse comment was supposed to prompt a response chock full of exciting updates to the Seven Miles of Sheer Hell Route...but alas, the changes have been more subtle than seismic....let's see....

Lucknow got a Pizzaland:

...and a crane for the team track, courtesy of Joe (dnhman)

The fire company members recently held a chicken dinner and raised enough money to buy some nice gold leaf lettering for the firehouse:

Been some motive power changes as well... the PRR's newest addition to the Division Street local fleet, a Walther's SW-1, complete with a Steam-Nut installed Tsunami sound system shown here patrolling the backwaters of Capital Street:

A previously acquired H16-44 (and hastily numbered "1234") finally got her REAL name: 8816 via my very first attempt to program using JMRI. Strangely enough, the loco did not smoke, spit, crinkle, crack, or blow up when programmed, although at this point I remain clueless as to what I actually did.

Last, but not least, HARSCO 1329, acquired second hand from the Southern Pacific, finally got the HTRR L&W Treatment. In keeping with the steel mill "make do" philosophy, the lettering and weathering were slapped and smeared on.

Other as yet undocumented projects currently residing on the workbench include a small diner for Market Street and about five real feet of chain link fence for Harrisburg Pipe and Tube....and how I despise making chain link fence!

Rick, I've seen on another forum someone use wedding veil fabric for chain link fence and it looked really good. I'd check it out, might be easier to use. Pics look great as well and congrats on not burning up a loco with JMRI,

Thanks, Phil...still stunned that I didn't smoke the decoder. As far as the fencing goes, that's what I'm using - wedding veil material (tulle?) purchased at Joanne Fabrics. As mentioned previously in the thread, accurately laying out, cutting and manipulating the stuff taxes my patience.

Its good to finally see an update Rick. I love the firehouse and that firetruck. I dont remember seeing that before!

A little here and a little there. It all contributes to the overall effect and looks great!

Rick, I am glad to see that #1234 finally got a real number! I was planning to sneak it home and do it myself but you beat me to it! All of your other projects look great. I wonder if those who work the Lucknow local will have time to grab a slice... assuming that pick up the right cars the first time!
