Management secured some screws this morning allowing crews to continue on slide switch installations. I managed to install six more. It's amazing how on some I have near surgical precision bending the wire and installing quickly and with great ease. Then, the next few, I feel I can't handle the simple task of tying my shoes. It's so frustrating! After failing three times, I had to walk away from the layout.
I must have been feeling better later as after everyone went to bed, I tackled the slide switches again, but different locations this time. I managed to install four more in the hard to reach Utica.
I counted up the remaining switches waiting installs. I have nine plus one that needs repaired on the original layout. I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
I then constructed the new highway bridge that traverses Ottawa yard. I will post pictures of that tomorrow.
