Throughout the fall I want to get the layout all tuned up for running trains again, get the trains themselves in good operating condition, finish off the basic scenery on the board, and have a scattering of detailed scenes on view. All in preparation for the Christmas season, especially for this year’s Silver Spike Ceremony.
I had plans to have some electrical prep work finished by summer’s end, but that didn’t pan out. Anyway, I thought I’d post a few photos of the layout just to document its present state. When it’s not on display it’s stored in the basement on a tall, wheeled frame. Right now it’s been rolled into the workshop so it’s easy to work on under the main shop lights. But, I think the first job I’ll need to tackle is cleaning up the workshop – it’s been neglected and abused all summer and now it needs some attention before I start on the layout.
