Things have been moving along very slowly–both because of our summer vacation and waiting for some parts to arrive. At this point, I’ve received my DCC command station, power connectors, and track joiners, so I’m working my way around the main line getting track joined and power distribution done. Nothing fancy, and not much to see, so no photos for now.
Here’s the first run of a full train all the way around the mainline loop down on the weed block in the raised bed. That’s the Piko BR-80 as before, but this time with the box car and gondola from the freight set. You can see that there’s still a long way to go, but I think this is the final form of the mainline loop.
After several rain delays and other interruptions, the concrete roadbed and track are down.

Those white pipes are the sprinklers for the lawn (I’m tired of moving our lawn sprinkler tractor around) and a riser for drip watering the plants on the layout.
I’ve finished putting down some track and ran my Piko BR-80 (0-6-0) around the mainline loop. Our little guy ran along side and gave commentary 🙂
