Curt: I have so much s**t spread out over the basement thatI spend most of my time, searching for tools or parts. There is no wonder why you can assemble quality structures on a regular basis, while I am spending most of my time, searching for where I left off.I have a touch of OCD that makes me keep things organized and clean. That is a folding table I brought upstairs so I had a large area to organize building parts since I'm doing 7 kits back to back. This is #5.
My railroad is mostly code 70, reflecting the Reading's use of lighter rail. The PRR branch on the East side of the layout, was built just prior to WW1, and has heavier 135lb rail, which scales out to Code 83. So, I'm using Code 83 on the PRR. Today, I finished the track work, and while searching for locomotives, I found another box of Code 83 track components including switches.
There's a lot to be said for organization and order.
Now that the revised track is in order, I have to glue down road bed and Gatorfoam, paint the surface, run the feeder wire and re-assemble the track.
While I'm doing all of that, I should finish painting the back drop, and assemble a few background structures.
