Keep up the good work and keep us posted. You are off to a great start.
Jim, thanks so much for the encouragement.
I wish I were posting progress more frequently but life has been tireless at throwing challenges at me for quite a while (but those details are for another forum) and I've done nothing on the layout for some time.
Hopefully I can get through everything and get back to the layout at some point
