Model Railroads
PRR Chartiers Branch

I am modeling the Chartiers Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad set in the summer of 1924, in S-scale, with engines powered by batteries.

I had no time to work on the layout this week.

Tuned-up 4 of the 7 turnouts, but I'm going to take a break. I got the supplies I needed to get back to building the PRR N6b caboose, and bought a new CAD program to help me design the car, so I don't make any more cutting mistakes.

Started fine-tuning the turnouts on my layout, to make sure they work flawlessly. The photo shows the reason why I need to add a backdrop to my layout soon. He's in the creek!

This has been one of those one-step-forward, two-steps-back kind of weeks. I realized that I made a mistake in placing the windows in the side walls for the PRR caboose I am scratchbuilding. Unfortunately, I had used all the strip wood I had available in building those, so I have some on order now. I did improve the layout lighting situation a bit (last two photos on the page).
