For the last 2 weeks I forgot to take my camera so no pictures. However the layout keeps moving forward. The 2 new turnouts installed in Herons Landing were wired up with only a few minutes delay in operations. The loss of power when running through these turnouts was very annoying so no one minded the break in operations.
When the system was turned on operators got right to it, including 2 exchange students who came up to see the layout. They were both quick to grasp the basics although Montana had trouble with the momentum on Don's doodlebug. Waiting passengers got their exercise chasing the train down the tracks. The other student's train also suffered the consequences of momentum while switching his train in Springbank. Tank cars were exploding, people were running, .... OK 1 car was derailed. A fun night for one and all.
