    Motion sensor hooked up to a camera and recorder? Report to police!

    Find out who they are and make their names public!

    Allen,

    Can you put some carpet strips on the top of the fence. You know the type they use for holding down broadloom carpet. Or better still Barbed wire.

    Don,t get me wrong, I'm not a mean person but if someone broke into my home, I'd do the maximum allowable to keep them out.

    I hope you solve the problem.

    Ralph and Mark, . .We are part and parcel of a community center which is very frequently rented out to private

    parties, especially for wedding receptions. Our leaser is now stipulating that renters will be responsible for paying

    for a security person to be present when their event occurs. Hopefully, that policy and our new fence and gate

    will solve the issues. Here are some pictures of our new enclosure:

    At first glance, it just looks like a new and taller wooden fence and gate, . .



    But behind the wood is a steel structure, . .



    And a locking foundation.



    Note that the fence has four steel rails and two wooden reinforcement supports, . .



    And the back fence has been enhanced with new and taller siding.

    What kind of a sick mind does that stuff? Absolutely sick. I also hope you catch them with a bat!

    Better yet, electrify the fence! That'll teach them! [:-hot]

    Allen,

    Don't you wish you could beat the living carp out of who ever is doing it? What about adding a motion sensor and a baseball bat? I know I wouldn't sleep night, just so I could catch the bastards.

    Several weekend's ago and after numerous break-in's, our club decided to take a breather and enhance its security efforts.

    First, there was a damaged clubhouse door with some items missing, then there were the soda cans over the fence, then

    our famed wheelbarrow on top of one of our large rocks turned up missing, then the large rocks in the courtyard were top-

    pled, then more cans, then a deluge of water from a tampered spicket, then graffiti, and now, this:









    So a group of us convened several Saturday's ago to build a new fence and gate. Pictures of these improvements will be

    posted in the near future.

    More great shots Allen! It looks like you guys are making great progress. I'll bet it is an absolute thrill for you guys to finally see benchwork going up

    after all that brutal back breaking work! The rewards will be plentyful!

    Although the picture below was taken from a different angle (looking South), the black pipe has been tucked against the wall

    to accommodate the helix:



    Above and below, the first/last turn of the helix has been temporarily placed as benchwork in the mole proceeds.

    Below, looking East from the middle of the mole:



    Below, from inside the helix looking West as Rick stated, benchwork is on the fast track:



    And from the West end of the mole looking East, note temporary location of track footprint on floor, which will eventually

    depart through the wall to Tallman:

    Mark, . .I inadvertently erased your entry here of 'things being well worth the wait'. I apologize.

    Please feel free to use the edit feature and comment again.


    Thanks,

    Bob & Others, . .Just a little note, . .I'm working with several handicaps which make this a frustrating experience.

    Several months ago, we lost our computer and we had a new one built to our specifications. We were not able

    to utilize our existing software. So I'm working with new and unfamiliar software, and things are not moving very

    fast when it comes to editing pictures. I'm now utilizing two different programs to do what we used to do with

    one. Also, for some reason, I'm experiencing a slowdown in the flow of data. :erm: I certainly hope the problem

    is not on my end. Thanks for your understanding and bearing with me.

    The following pictures were taken just before benchwork got under way:

    The new mole gets its final coat of paint:



    Take note of the black pipe to the right. It will need to be modified to accomodate the helix:



    The firring of the walls for backdrops and benchwork continues:



    As does the masonite:



    And filler:



    The valances display their recently installed molding for holding railcar consist cards:

    That's great news Rick! After all that work, it sure is good to hear that the layout is progressing.

    I don't have pictures, but I can tell you that the benchwork in the staging area (Mole) is nearly complete, and benchwork in Tallman which is the first town coming out of the mole is complete, the homasote is down, we have laid out the switches for the main, siding, the house tracks and Industrial spurs. and we have started to laydown the roadbed.
