Here are some photos from today of the layout progress, the inner loop has been glued down, and some grass has been applied:

By the way, the three squares on the layout, one with stripes, one with PCRS, and the one with PCR are examples of what decals we may come up with for the front of the locomotive.

The GP38-2 will be painted as a Possum Central freight locomotive.

Status Report 18October2017:

1.) Layout Ready to Show
2.) Participation Increase in progress, preparation for 2017 Charleston Area Train Show underway.
3.) Locos 14/12
4.) Railcars 17/24
5.) Vehicles 12/12

The first 3' x 4' layout is complete enough where I would feel comfortable showing it off, although I am still waiting on a few sections of track to complete the outer loop.

The outer loop of track has finally shipped, and should be on the layout within the week.

In regard to the 2018 TT Scale Resolutions, I will go with five resolutions again.

I do not feel like repeating all of the 2017 resolutions, and with the development of the 10' x 14' layout depending on acquiring enough track, I do not feel it wise to try to pin myself to such a high standard, as I do not like setting myself up for likely failure.

Here is a "look" at what I have in mind for the 2018 TT Scale resolutions:

1.) Display TT scale trains in operation at 2 or more model train shows in 2018.
2.) 24 TT Scale Vehicles (Trailers count as a separate vehicle for the resolution).
3.) 24 TT Scale Railcars either completed, converted to knuckle couplers, or purchased.
4.) 12 TT Scale Structures (Buildings, bridges, railroad infrastructure, just not landscaping only things)
5.) To Be Determined - Suggestions are welcome!

As the case for 2017, these will involve North American proto only, aside from European stuff that will "fit" on a North American layout.
