Hey all,

I hope that all is well with each of you. Lazy weekend for us. Pop and I took the boy on a canoe ride today and snapped a few photos. Also took a photo of the updated bench work. Hopefully I am officially out of lumberyard land for a while. Despite my uneven garage floor, the benchwork (as of right now) is level with itself and in all directions. Time to clean up, start finishing structures, construct roads and lay some track! y'all have a good week! bridge.jpgbridge 2.jpgunnamed.jpg

...before the kid that inspired the build grows up and leaves home.

Exactly!!! He's 13 now & mostly interested in girls. I've been thinking about putting the neighborhood on it's own 4'x4' table so I can concentrate on completing that portion for him. I'm gonna start on that first thing tomorrow morning.

Build it as a lift out section so it can be displayed on a separate table or lowered into place on the layout when ready.

added the 4' x 4' section today (which is detachable) and put structures (some yet to be built) in place. Gotta get the foam board down then focus pocus on completing the neighborhood portion first.

I hope you all have had a restful Saturday. Between statistics homework, I've been fiddling with track ideas for the section that will be between the station and the wharf. This layout is currently 4 x12 but will be at least 4 x 24 after the upcoming move (so I'm attempting to make provisions for that as well). Stay safe out there

Not much going on in the garage today. Sculptamold and paving tape came in a little earlier. Waiting for a few more items before getting started on scenery for the neighborhood side. I hope that y'all have a great day!

Here's a quick video of the neighborhood side so far
