All the rail is down for Module D (see new photos). The Houston S Gaugers club has a train show coming up in November for which I need to build a junction tower (for the club's wye modules), so I am going to take a break from the layout and complete that structure. I will post photos of that build on this site. My other task now is to stock on up paint. I did an experimental airbrushing session using Tru-Color paint mixed with acetone and I think I am happy with the results. I need to paint the new track and I have several freight cars waiting to be painted and decaled.

For three weeks I literally did nothing on the layout due to a work project. This is rare, because I normally do something hobby-related every day. However, I am back to working on the trackwork on Module D. I am wrapping up the turnout, and then applying some track details. Photos will be forthcoming.

Added a lot of "wild" greenery around and under the trees. It's looking pretty good!

I have installed the first divergent point rail on the layout. I am currently taking a break from track work and doing some more scenery work.

I decided it was time to completely revise and update my popular S-CAB, battery-power page.
