Looking really good, and keeping you off the streets, that's for sure.

Thanks for the kind words Ron. I'm using Brennan's Better Ballast, it gave me the look I wanted. That siding is very close to the wall. Thanks John, I'm getting some good oppotunities lately, and want to make progress when I can.

Thanks Jerry,

I wondered where some of the heavy hitters went. I signed up here some years ago, but there wasn't much traffic. Now it's much more active with some of the very best talent, including you. I always enjoyed your posts.

Andy

I finally finished ballasting the mains! Seemed to take forever... In the last picture I had to move the siding slightly to accommodate future scenery...Next, it's on to the yard.

Thanks for looking,

Andy

Nice progress Andy, I'll enjoy following your progress. Those Custom Signals look great. I waited too long and Terry closed up shop before I figured out what I wanted for my layout. Oh well...

Hi Bob,

I wasn't at all ready for the signals, but when I heard Terry was closing shop, it jumped to the top of the list. I've heard Integratedsignalsystems.com has pretty good equipment too.

Here is the wire, connector, and panel for my signal system, from Terry Christopher at Custom Signals. The panel was actually pretty straight forward working with the signal plan provided. Each signal on the layout comes back to the panel, and then is wired to the next signal, etc.
