The last photo for tonight shows just how close we are to completing the circuit. A right hand switch needs to go in here. We should have a completed loop tomorrow.

CONNECTED!!!!! The circle is complete. We decided to allow the owner the privilege of being the first to go all the way around.

Now we have shifted to the trackage leading up to the turntable. The next milestone we are working towards is to get the owners Northern onto the track to see how it likes the track.

   Well,,,,,we need a report. Was he "tickled pink" with his new RR. He should be!! Hell, you followed a lot of practices on track work to handle long framed engines. By the pics, I don't see why the should be any problems.  Let me know when the event of his engine running is going to take place. OK.
 
    Again,,,,,Nice work Bobby, nice work !!

Yah, let us know when the event is going to happen, it would be neat if we could be there to watch, or if someone can get it on video.

Progress has slowed down a little, since the main line is done. Now we are focusing on service tracks and yard trackage which takes a little longer to do.  
This first photo shows the 3 approach tracks to the turntable. The center engine lead is complete. the left track will be to the 2nd yard track and will parallel the engine lead track. The right track will go to the unloading transfer table.

Wow!
 
Can't wait to see a certain C of G 4-8-4 shine up those rails!  Will we see a certain NYC Hudson and possibly Mohawk pay a visit?

Progress in the yard is coming along nicely. This is looking towards the east end of the yard.
