This morning, I worked on ballasting the main and siding in Peoria. It was a short section (about 2 1/2ft long), but I managed to get it spread and glued.
I also ran a test passenger train back down the layout. It doesn't look like I will have to perform a full cleaning of the track again before the video re-take tomorrow.
This evening, I worked in the layout room while the girls worked on their homework (taking breaks to help them). I added some bushes and such along the stone wall on the Peoria Branch plus some areas between the mainline and Peoria Branch.
I ballasted from the north switch of Peoria up to where I stopped at Bureau Junction previously as well as over halfway around the turnback of the wye. The ballast train has been working overtime. It's looking great!
I ran another test train up and down the layout. I believe are good for take two of the video tomorrow.
Here are some photos of the progress (the ballast discoloring is due to the glue still drying).
