First time the modules have been set up. Looks fairly good. Still a long way to go. Once the track was cleaned (and cleaned again) it ran really well with the AZL SD70. The newer MTL SD40 needed it’s front plow sanded. Then it ran fairly well. Did have to fix one “bump” in the track that constantly derailing the outer line.
After the break is a “helicopter” video view of the route.

Last night was a marathon to get just this plywood pacific running. I somehow borked the wiring and ended up with a short. Didn’t get a chance to test run on the unproven track. Also had plan to run two trains. However, thanks to the USPS detouring the package to Iowa……I couldn’t. Probably a good thing in the long run as I didn’t have time to prep for a 2 train setup. Went to bed around 3a and then work up at 5 to temporarly fix the borked wiring.

Well, the Door Slab layout was OK. Learned a lot. However, since I now have more space and didn’t get too far with it…..well, it will be morphing into modules. Initial plan is:
More pictures after the break…

Went to the Asheville Train Show today and was pleased to meet a fellow Z scaler: Larry Weed. Took a few photos of his 4ft x 4ft display. Looks REALLY nice.

Byron and I along with family friend Jacob attended the 2nd Thompson’s Old Fashioned Train show in Clemmons today. Lots of O and S. Some HO and N layouts. Then there was my Z scale one. Although massively incomplete, it was well received. Finally got a cheap old N scale boxcar to compare to one in Z and then people really appreciated the size more. Alright, enough talking, time for pictures:
