Tuesday night at the Huff and Puff

Started out by setting up the sawmill complex and the gravel dock. After agreeing to the layout of these structures we went back to grading the lower mainline. After some adjustments to get the grade between 1.6 to 1.8 % the road bed was added. The area under the gravel dock was lowered 2 1/2 inches so that there will be a straight run to the track coming from Jutland.
Power and a shelf were added under Lincoln for a quad unit and it's power supply. As there is an unused terminal on this quad we decided to split the branchline into 2 sections.
Up for discussion, to simplify the trackwork and add more elevation separation between Lakeview and the lower mainline, we could remove the connection to the lower mainline near the sawmill. This would allow all of Lakeview to be lower. However this would mean you would have to back out of Lakeview to the turnout at the east end of Lincoln to get onto the lower mainline to continue on to Elsewhere.
