Friday April 1st

 All but the light over the DC, HO scale railroad, have had the diffusers remove, creating a much brighter layout. There is only a few more flip cards to be added, and throttle holders were put up in high traffic areas.

By adding some more hoppers, that were previously used to haul gravel, to the unit trains we now have 2, 10 car trains, 1 empty and one loaded. There still needs to be cars with horn hooks at 1 end and kadees at the other made. Flip cards still are needed for the single hoppers of coal loads.

In a couple of weeks the backdrop painting should be complete, at which point all the background building flats and pictures can be permanently installed. 

Almost all of the Wellington division's mainline is ballasted, but there is a lot of the darker ballast to be put down on the Elsewhere division's mainline and many sidings and yards.

Power and a control switch still needs to be installed for the turnout at the log pond.
