The photographer came again.

yep, my Uncle dropped over this afternoon with his camera and we took 11 pictures. I put them up on my website

http://www.muskokacomputes.com/CVR_Layout02.htm

Here are two shots that give the overall view or the CVR "Alcove".

But don't look at the mess under the layout.
Eventually, there will be a fascia on and skirting around the benchwork.





Dang, had to edit it.
Isn't there a way to fix "posting a picture" so it is user friendly? IE: without having to upload and then remember what to edit out?

Just to keep you folks up to date, tonight I finished the wiring on the "Mainline Control Panel". Next comes finishing the panel enclosure and mounting it on drawer glides so it can tuck under the river at The Forks Of The Credit.

The layout has 36 blocks, the Mainline Panel has 20, the Yard Panel will have the remainder.

The control panel is nothing impressive.

Just a piece of pegboard material 24" x 12" with the track plan drawn with a black marker and 20 mini toggle switches up through the peg holes.

There is also a Bachmann controller wired to the pegboard to power the system.
Yes, I said Bachmann, remember I am starting with two Bachmann train sets,

Will,
Oh boy, wiring. My favorite part of the hobby.

But, it looks like it is almost behind you.

Thanks Bruce, wiring is my favourite too, NOT.

I still have the Yard Control Panel to wire, so I count it 50% done.

Finally had time to work on the layout.

Not much done, wiring is about 75% done, the benchwork is now skirted and instead of blue foam, it now resembles red clay.

Also, I used my tax refund to buy a Fuji E500 digital camera.

I have all the photos posted on my website:

I like the red clay better. And the skirting looks good. Tidies the room up nicely.

Thanks David and Rick.

David, my wife likes it too, the layout is in an alcove off our living room.
