Slow progress

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.

Inaugural Run

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.
