We have had this discussion several times now on Frank's builds. It is becoming redundant, but here we go again. There is no question Frank. You are definitely a perfectionist craftsman, way past a master modeler classification. And a very huge role model, pun intended on this forum'...

Dave, the track work on the second version of the #3 turnout was very satisfying once completed. The performance of the ďYĒ is so smooth and it looks way better. The electrical part was a definite head scratcher.

Ted and Mike, thanks for the compliments, theyíre much appreciated.

Bill, thanks.

Iíve done a little more work on the carfloat. I added a set of HO steel girders to the sides of the bridge.





I turned down some F-scale belt pulleys into O-scale grooved pulleys.



I soldered a lift structure for the bridge. This is me testing for size and overall fit.



Some more work on the lift structure.



Here it is in place with the carfloat.



Dave helped me out by adding a welder. He's become our iMovie expert.

Iím sure that will fix that nasty problem spot. https://youtu.be/xq7RQoNdcrA
