Tuesday night at the Huff and Puff

There was lots of running, I think we had 6 or more trains on the move at once.  With that much movement of rolling stock a lot of Red Cards and blue push pins got used.  At our monthly meeting we should decide if the club will supply parts to repair and adjust rolling stock or if everyone is responsible for there own rolling stock. We will be replacing the track on the trestle west of Springbank which has come loose because of expansion.  Another project is to add a run around at Northdale, which requires a left hand #6 and some flex track. As next week is our work meeting we can tackle track work and wiring in more feeders. I also talked to most members about double tracking the upper loop. This would involve replacing the trestle deck with one wide enough to hold 2 tracks, adjusting the outer wall of the approach to the tunnel, putting in a double tunnel portal, moving the turnout out of the tunnel to a new location by Trent's Hill and adjusting the tracks. Good thing the new lumber yard in Lincoln has lots of lumber.
