    • Have finished the channel lighting by adding the lights for the swing bridge and warning light for the rocks. I found the correct lighting arrangement for the bridge which requires, in addition to the lights on the bridge itself; 4 lights lower to the water which mark the two channels on either side of the center span and another light in the center.

      Also added a warning buoy/light for the rocks and this one blinks which adds some life to scene.

      Repairing a faulty switch and adding the staging track is next on the agenda.

          • Looks great! Reminds me of sailing down on the Jersey Shore. I like the low shot looking thru the marsh!

                • Welcome back Dave. Because you used the camera icon to post your photo, it only loads it as a thumbnail. so have to click on the thumbnail to see full size.

                  to load full size direct to the forum, Instead, use the Image icon about 3/4 along the editing bar for photos (see below)
                  Click upload tab, choose file (then select your photo, then click send to server, and then post reply. Apparently the max photo size is now 2mg

                          • Nice scene, Dave. I can almost hear the mosquitos buzzing around my ears.

                              • Well I've not posted for a while but have gotten a bit done. All scenery is in as is the lighting. I also added a 2 track staging yard at the right side of the layout that comes off of the curve and behind my desktop computer. A big step was re-doing my JMRI track plan to reflect all of the changes and the rewiring of switches so that they can be controlled from my desktop. I wound up with a semi-schematic which adds a bit of realism and purpose (Picture below.). Have had a lot of trouble with my only engine and finally have it working the way I'd like. When Atlas engines work well, their slow speed is pretty amazing and I'm enjoying some informal switching. I will see that I crave larger scale due to my eyesight and the greater reliability. When you have micro-contact of wheels and rails in N gauge, there's always the susceptibility for dead spots. Wish Atlas would find a way to put capacitors in their GPs.

                                Not sure about the next step. I know that this layout is not my last and in about 2 years I have some job decisions to make as I hit the ability to leave my current job with a pension. So I'm apprehensive about investing too much more into my current set-up but with the possibility of a move, not willing to start a new layout which will at least be HO. I guess this is good decision to have . Some pictures below.
