This week I completed the installation of Tortoise switch machines on the left-hand module.

I added the "Disassembly" article, about how to take my layout apart. In addition to that, I also have been able to drill the holes for the fascia LEDs and push buttons for the first module.

Apparently there were some ties where I didn't apply all of the tiny strips of styrene on the tie plates, so I went through the whole layout and applied the missing ones. Starting today I am going to work on taking the layout apart, to get ready to work on installing the Circuitron Tortoise switch machines under the modules.

This week I managed to squeeze in a bit of time for the layout, and cut all the rails at the modules' borders. Not much, but every little bit helps.

Continued to work on the last turnout. Only 2 more pieces of rail (the two wing rails) to install on my current layout. Hopefully, I will be able to knock those out this weekend!
