Doug,
At the rate of your build, perhaps the next EXPO should be held in Florida. Absolutely astonishing build so far and I can't wait to see upcoming posts. This is going to wunderful, wunderful. Just make sure that you keep the posts coming.

Yes, but if they schedule it based on moderate hotel rates, it'll be in the hot part of the year.

Tom, I cleaned up my PM message box.  The PM message box limit of 3 PMs seems rather harsh....  :)

I spent five days at the Fine Scale Modeler's Expo in Danvers, MA late March/early April. It was great! And then I spent a week catching up at work. And then my gall bladder decided it "was time" so I spent a couple days in the hospital getting it removed followed by 4-5 days of recuperation. And then I got back to working on the layout.

Installing the 1/8" masonite backdrop and formica coved corners around the center platform for the middle level.





And then I spackled/faired/sanded all the joints/seams several times.

And then I primed with Zinser 1-2-3 primer









And then I painted the sky blue backdrop color







I painted sections of the 2x6 beams that support the upper level 'wings' the blue sky color where they project below the upper level benchwork. I will either leave them sky blue or possibly paint them (and the upper level benchwork) flat black at some point in the future.





At this point I'm going to install the roadbed and track for the mainline all the way around to where it enters the helix (where it climbs up to the middle level).

Doug,

You are making fantastic progress on the layout.

We enjoyed meeting you yesterday and look forward to seeing the Ogden & Cache Valley RR.

Take it easy on the layout while you recover from the gall bladder surgery. I know, easier said than done.

Oh my! That's Incredible! (a late 70's/early 80's show I believe).  Onewolf, You've just built a house inside your...house?  I... like it!  I've got to ask, do you need any locomotives or engines built?  I know my friend Tom L. lives near but even he would need help with a couple orders.  Just saying.   Thanx Thom...

Doug,

Thank you for hosting the SBG this morning. Your layout is most impressive not to mention the bench work. What a fantastic long you'll have for the Union Pacific.
