Good Afternoon,

Bob thanks for following and the support. I lucked out with a large interior room (loft) that was not really being used for anything.

Today I finished the peninsula. The finished length is 9'6'' instead of 10'6'' on the plans. It will have my yard, a second reverse loop. and possibly a business (undecided). I also attached 2 angle boards to ease the 90 degree angles on the back corners.

 Today I hit one of the milestones for the layout finishing the framing portion of the build. ;D In the photo the wide ends are 3 foot apart and the closest distance from the corners of the peninsula is 27 inches. From the end to the wall (next to camera taking picture is 4 foot. This has better access than my last one that you had to "suck" it in to walk down the edge or get to the center which makes me happy.

The next steps will be running the main buss, reverse loop wiring, accessory buss wiring, and loconet wiring. The fun stuff :-\. It will probably be Sunday or Monday before I start.

The benchwork looks great.  I'm looking forward to seeing this RR come alive.

Great progress Curt! Benchwork can be very satisfying that way...no other aspect of the hobby can fill a room so quickly!

Curt - Very impressive bench work. I will regularly stop by and view the progress.  Will there be a dock for submarines?
