No updates as of yet, I typically don't work on it much during the summer. I will post updates once I start working on it again.

Thanks for the interest!

Well, now that the weather is getting cooler, my other house projects are finishing up and I recent went to our fall train show - I have been making some progress on the railroad.

All of the track has been installed along with all of the ground throws:







This also means I was able to finally finish all of the feeder wires. I have feeder wires every 6 ft. on the mainline (so no single section is further than 3 ft. from a feeder). I also have feeders on every dead end siding. This is a total of 25 feeders I think. The other huge benefit of this is that I was able to cleanup under the table and finally put all of my boxes under the table instead of throughout the room.





I am not sure on my next steps, I think I am going to run it for a while to ensure the track is working and doesn't need any modifications prior to painting and ballasting.

I am currently using JMRI Operations to provide train orders, so all of the cars you see on the railroad have been put in those places based on orders and not just randomly set.
