Tuesday night at the Huff and Puff
Almost everyone was present for our last Tuesday of 2013. Our first year has brought amazing results. Almost all of the track work is down and a lot of it is ballasted. Can you believe it, a gallon of ballast is all gone. Many structures have been brought in and many more are completed or being worked on by our members. We have used a bag of hydrocal and more is needed. Some of the backdrop is painted and isolated areas have scenery applied. Even with Christmas just around the corner, and everyone in the holiday spirit, we still managed to get some work done. The yard and most of the mainline was installed at Wellington, hills worked on at Miller, more scenery applied to the branch line, gaps in the scenery base filled in and work around the power plant continued.
Looking forward to next year is exciting. We will be testing our track and wiring. Installing the DCC system. Scenery, scenery, scenery, this will make our railroad come alive. Structures and sidings will be installed and details added. We may even start running trains!
I would like to thank our crew for all their work, ideas and insight, and wish everyone Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
