Granite City Train show report

Another show done.
The Granite City Train show is always fun. It's good to meet up with old friends and share stories, catch up with what's going on.
Wingett's performed well, though not perfectly. I know what needs to be done and that will involve relaying some of the track. But I don't have to think about that now.
I even appeared on local radio once again to talk about the layout as it was inspired by a local industry. That drew a few people to come and see the layout later on in the day.
A rather glowing write up of a persons impression of the layout can be read here...
Now I think layout development will shift back to my T scale projects until I decide what to do about relaying that track.

I'm a B-a-a-a-d Boy...

March 15th. Thats when the last post was dated and thats when I said I was going to start work on prepping the layout for the Granite City Train show.
Have I started?
Have I heck. I went out and bought myself a new camera and embarked on a picture a day project.
Though give me my due. I have turned the layout around so I can work on it from the rear to build the extension to the fiddle yard.
I find myself with two weeks to do the tasks I need to do.
Build a fiddle yard extension, paint and decal my locomotive conversion, add some scenic details and make sure it still all runs...

No problems...
