Tuesday night at the Huff and Puff

Welcome to the to our newest member Jeff. Some of our members ran on the mainline for a while. No problems were encountered so once the feeders are added to the the sidings to Allen Lumber and Gay Lea Foods, ballasting on the new track can begin.

Jim Long has become my proof reader of sorts. We discussed the direction that Jackson Transfer should be switched as you have to go into the Harbor Crane siding and then back into the Jackson Transfer siding. His solution is to use the 2 back passing tracks to make this manoeuvre, leaving the 2 mainline passing sidings open. He also pointed out that I had left the starting point off of several train orders, good catch.

A few of us added supports and adjusted the grade up to Ortona, most of it is about 1.8 to 2.3 degrees, not bad for a branchline. It looks like the stream will flow down where the bottles of screws are. The climb up to the logging spur is only about 2 1/2 inches.
