This morning, I was unable to work on the railroad as my entire routine was off due to the girls being out of school plus a sleepover last night.
This evening, I began to ballast the mainline between Ottawa and Joliet, but failed to remember I needed to paint the rail/track first. Shoot! Vacuumed up the little bit I put down so far.
Painted the track/rails from Ottawa to UD Tower at Joliet. Spread ballast from the bridge just east of Ottawa down to the west switch of Joliet. It still isn't glued yet.
