        Rick,

        The pictures are not there.

        I think the problem is that Allen tried to up-load pdf. files since he posted the following.

        . . .in the future, one of our club members, Jan, will be providing some CAD drawings/PDF files which

        will enable viewers to observe the Santiam Pass Lite in higher detail. . .


        The problem is that the forum software will not allow this type of file to be up-loaded.

        Since Allen only reads the forum occasionally maybe you could contact him to tell him that there are no pictures.

          Rick, Jerry, John & Others,

          The PDF files are currently in the hands of our forum's Administrator, and Joe will add them when time allows.

          Please be patient. Also, I have other pictures and updates to add, hopefully before we leave on our San Francisco

          trip at the end of July. After nearly a year, the county court finally released me from my probate responsibilities,

          and the renovation contractor whom I have been assisting for the past month or so, is almost finished. I usually

          visit the forum daily, but have had little time to respond. Thanks for understanding.

            Wow, I'm just catching up on your progress. Needless to say those blank drawings are quite a tease! But the ceiling looks great! I love the valance and the painted black area above the aisle ways. That's exactly what I plan to do on my layout. I love the contrast and it will definitely enhance the diorama effect. I can't wait to see more pics of progress!

              Mark:

              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.

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

                  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:

                      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.

                        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,

                          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:

                              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!

                                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.
