I completed the outside rail of Track #4 (second from the right), and I couldn't resist putting a train together on Track #1. The train with 9 cars, a caboose, and a locomotive only leaves 7" of space open on the track.

I swapped the "My Library" and "PRR Chartiers Branch" links on the home page. Since the branchline has been the main focus of my modeling efforts since mid-2008, it should get a prime spot on the home page. That section's content has been moved out of the "Articles" section.
