  • Philip, didn't know about your medical issues, but I'm glad you're OK now.
    Gondola looks good and I'm sure you'll get the track fixed and re-ballasted.
    Follow along as my dog and I travel the country in our van.

              Thanks Mike, I'm over the health hurdle.
              Next show I'll guarantee no damage. When I loaded at the house the last module in was sitting on it's edge held in place with a ratchet strap and one drywall screw! Redesigned the load plan after that. Miscalculation of footage. LOL!

              • Small update: Filing that unsightly groove in the copper foil so the ties to looks more realistic . Just about done with this step. Hope to finish this step today.
                I also filed the anchor ties on each end and attached with JB Weld.

                • Those are quite deep grooves. Nice save with the fill in.

                      damage to your layout for the sake of a show. Nice job on fixing the problem once and for all. Looking forward to

                      • Thanks Larry. I'm also building some racks in the retired work van to keep things from moving around. A simple 2 shelf rack. No more oh..... it doesn't fit!

                          The van sounds like a good plan.

                      • Philip good to see you back at this. Like Larry said the van sounds like a great idea!

                            • Philip nice switch shacks; every little bit is sill progress. Curious where the "brick work" is going; is
                              that carved foam? It looks really good.
