Today, I moved the Swakhammer and Fox Run builds back to their locations on the layout for final track placement. The track has been glued to the baseboards, and once the glue dries the baseboards will be moved back to my workbench for final detailing.

I also setup the track work location for the next two builds in the Eagles Nest Yard Industrial complex.

Thank you for stopping by the thread. I'm making progress but life is really getting in the way of modeling so far this year. Full steam ahead.

Today, the Swakhammer's build was moved back to my workbench with the track glued down to the baseboard.  Now, all of the details can be placed in their final position.

Today, I'm working on the final track work changes to the Eagles Nest yard. Also, started adding all the tortoise machines and removing the temporary caboose ground throws.

Update: For the next few days I will be spending a lot of time under the layout installing and wiring the tortoise machines for the Eagles Nest Yard. I have a few more track sections to install, as well. I keep moving between the yard and the builds on my workbenches.  My back can only stand so long under the layout. ;)

Today, Grandpa John's Welding Company got a sign.  This structure is named after my dad who was called Grandpa John by my kids and everyone that knew him. He was a welder by trade and this is his shop on the S&S RR.
