June 4, 2013 - Work Weekend
Bob started putting the roof on the Car Barn extension on Friday. That is a good job for a skinny guy. Saturday we took the afternoon off and visited the Age of Steam Roundhouse in Sugarcreek. That was neat!
The Main Line Extension is still the main focus. This group is digging in some of the signal wires for the first block. We are going to try powering the signals from batteries and solar cells to charge the batteries.
Now that the reverse loop in in place consideration can be extended to the yard and switching. The current plan is to add a track southwest of the yard for a switching lead (red dotted line on photo). This photo was taken from just north of the new bridge.
This photo was taken further to the northeast. The switching lead will come off the switch near the bottom of the photo.
Clee is laying out the switches.
