Work has been keeping me very busy (I love what I do, though), but progress is being made at a very slow pace on the layout. I have finally completed the first throwbar installation on the layout. I tried to get fancy, but in the end I settled for the "old reliable" PC strip.

I have completely reworked my S-CAB and battery-power article, to split it over several pages (instead one huge page). New is the quick method of making a section of track be the charging station for my battery-powered locomotive(s) on that section of track.

I added the start of an article about installing the Caboose Industries ground throw on my layout. I am still working on finishing up the rails of the first turnout, but I wanted to capture my thoughts on the ground throws.
