The ROCK 3.0: Progess Report 04.02.14

Post op sessions are usually quiet.  No real progress has been made on the layout.  I did repair a turnout point that popped loose at the mortar sand loading track at Ottawa Silica.  I also re-staged the layout, but only the locals.  I plan on operating the layout myself to see what the jobs are like.

I have a 3-day weekend coming up Friday so I look forward to running some trains.

The ROCK 3.0: In Remembrance

Today, marks the 34th anniversary of when the ROCK met it's demise and shut down.  We'll take a brief moment of silence to remember the ROCK .........

No major progress on the layout since Saturday.  I have been working on re-staging the layout.  Progress will most likely be slow now as I don't have an impending op session to motivate me to do more.  :-)

I did receive two new trucks today from Shapeways to use over at PQ.  You gotta love 3D printing.  Very cool stuff.
