Gracias, mi amigos! The locals are celebrating, but keeping it within limits. Tomorrow is another working day in the mines.

Verne, your little sliding transfer table is pretty neat. The big hinged one that somebody posted on page 100 was cool too.

Thank you, gents!

Well, I completed a bumper at the end of track on the table, to keep runaway trains from zooming off the table under the layout. I also built an extended bar (NO, not THAT kind of bar! ) to allow an operator to move the transfer table under the benchwork of the upper level.

I need to let the paint and glue dry, and I will bolt it to the table tomorrow. Then I just extend the wiring to reach the switches on the panel, and make a 'backstop' to keep the rearmost trains from somehow falling behind the table onto the supporting benchwork. Maybe I can find some light vinyl molding that is high enough, or an L-section made from light gauge sheet metal.

Once this is done, I can concentrate on finishing some of my projects that have been in limbo while I have been fooling around with the Estrella extension!
