On the eve before the op session, I installed the signal bridge at West Ottawa. It's a long tedious process hooking up the various wires and such. After encountering some frustration with the install, once done, I cleaned up my tools and such and finished for the night. I accomplished everything on my list except installing one additional inbound signal at West Ottawa. Not bad. I looked back and I really didn't start back to working on the layout after a long hiatus until 8/12. So, I accomplished a lot in 45 days.
I guarantee progress will slow down for a little while now.
