We were able to lay track for track four of Phase 2 but ran out of straight tracks. Chas Ro shipping some now.20190403_162857_1554414963241.jpg20190403_162423_1554414989925.jpg20190403_162411_1554415017292.jpg

Nice to see you making progress, looking good.
Looks like that's going to be an interesting section of the project.

This is coming along very nicely. Can't wait to see the continued progress.

How did you protect the layout in winter? Did you just put a tarp over it or was there more to it?

We do not cover it. Track, on Phase 1 has been out several years. Nothing has moved. Track is tapconed through trex and into a solid concrete 4 x8 x16 block.

Makes sense. Looks like solid construction work. I've always wondered if there were any concerns from the winter weather with outdoor layouts.

We just finished track 4 including a bridge installation and ballast. Wiring is next and additional landscaping. 20190424_193006_1556202592723.jpg20190424_131538_1556202633305.jpg

We had our official town park opening. There was a huge car show on the
grounds. Our train
museum was open and the outdoor G guage was
operational with all four
tracks.
