Great first build Jeff.

Good Morning,

Helped SIL move 50 boxes of viynl flooring last night and my lower back is not happy today after being sore from the other day. Getting older is for the birds.

I hope that everyone has a good day.

Good Morning All,

Just came in from working outside for 2.5 hours and I'm done for the day. Trying to cool off enough so I can get cleaned up.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for your kind words Mark and my thoughts also.

Today I sanded the cork, made sure it was level, added the turnout cork base and sanded the edge down to board level. After a trip to Lowes I painted this section.

Probably no layout time tomorrow since I have a project outside tomorrow.

Afternoon All,

Thank you Tom, Jerry, Jim, and Karl for your very kind words.

Today I finalized the track layout for the engine servicing area (third variation) and laid roadbed around the future facilities. The radius ended up being 27.5 inch. On the inside facing framework I will need to glue some blocks to the existing framing when putting up the fascia to give a little more room.

I still need to sand the roadbed and verify that everything is level. In the past I used latex caulk to hold the cork, but today I used Elmer's. I'll see how it holds tomorrow. I should of laid down cork for the initial 2 turnouts but forgot to. Everything else will be glued to the plywood in this area. That means a trip to Lowes tomorrow for brown paint before gluing track down later this week.

My SIL is coming out next weekend to router out the black rectangle in the photo which will be the ash pit. I plan to fix it up similar to what Tom has done on his layout.

Good Morning,

Just waiting on the storm (slowed to 8 mph). I'll do some inside chores then layout time.

I hope everyone has a good day.
