Dave Thanks for the input. I agree with you. They are not cheap, I still ran out and used a million pin's every inch. Still not the same effect. I need to sand more. But it's getting done. Dennis

Dennis, ;D

This is coming together nicely. I've always enjoyed the track laying/planning process.

Tom & Jerry, I went way backward's today..As A dummy I did the track and let it dry for a few day's and this morning looking over things. I FORGOT TO DRILL HOLES FOR ALL MY SWITCHES. So today I tore up about 80% of track in the congested area. And drilled all my holes.  Dennis

Dennis,

I hate it when things like this happen. Of course, you understand I've never done anything like that. Oh wait, I think my nose is getting longer. Now, where is my small wood saw?  8) :P

Update. Today I did some riser's and cut them in and installed some more roadbed and track and cut a hole where my double bridge is going. Tomorrow I like to install more track and hopefully install that bridge.....Dennis

Dennis,


If you looked at my layout thread you know I had to tear up track that had to be relocated because I goofed.  I guess what I am saying is, "join the club".  I see lots of progress since your "oops", so keep the pics coming.
