Well folks it's time to bite the bullet and get started. Obviously it's going to be a folded dog-bone, loop to loop whatever. The basic bench work is done and in place (except for one section still laying on top of one of the peninsulas.

No sign of outbreak on quarantined train, health officials say
A Via Rail Passenger Train was quarantined at a Northern Ontario town for a time today. The train was traveling from BC to Toronto On. when a woman passenger died and others...

I found this quite interesting, have a look, an online railway publication free of charge.
Heather is still recovering from wounds suffered while saving her family’s bacon from an intruder last week.
Her eye remains swollen and her snout scratched, but the Tamworth pig bested a bobcat that hopped into her outdoor pen hoping to...
Seven Locos built for the French Railroad by GM at the London shops, on their way to Toronto for export. Kind of weird looking critters eh!
