Re-staging of the layout is complete. I'm not sure when the next op session will be though. The summer has been kind of crazy for scheduling. Before I operate I would like to install the slide switches on all the newly installed turnouts.
I continued a project I started in the spring regarding speed matching locomotives. I matched up my Intermountain FP7 so it can run with two sets of locos. The ROCK was known for running some wild lash-ups. I figure the crew would enjoy running a FP7 on the point.
I attempted to replace the wheels on the E8, but found that the wheels I purchased are not the right size. Sadness! I will have to figure out which ones I need.
Cleaned up the layout room for some visitors this week. In the process the area for Peoria was cleaned out. I started laying out some track and roadbed. I have a general vision for what I want in Peoria, but will return to it after doing some field research in the real Peoria.
