Also, owing to the "one-two punch" of reduced income due to the current COVID-19 related issues with work, and reduced availability of track (that I have been able to find), the modules section of the 2020 resolutions may be missed, and if missed, will be incorporated into the 2021 TT Scale Resolutions.

How do you like the surface texture left by the printing method? Looks too rough to me, so does it need to be sanded a lot before any painting?
Thanks,
Tom

I do not really care that much for the texture, but the structures that I received are minor in relevance for the layout, and in the case of the Quonset huts, the texture does not matter much on them.

Well, just as I get some work done, I broke my only 0-80 tap in a project engine by dropping it.

Oh well, I have four TT locomotives approaching completition at this time, mainly waiting on paint to dry and some detail work to get done as well.

1.) PVM/Lionel AT&SF F-3A
2.) HP Products 4-8-2
3.) HP Products 0-6-0
4.) HP Products 2-8-2 (light)

Also, it looks like the "Display" portion of the 2020 TT Scale Resolution will be met, as there is plans of going forward with the 2020 Spud Valley Hobby Show in October 2020.

A HP Products 0-6-0 has been rebuilt and is currently running laps on the layout to help smooth everything out. Photos/video to follow as soon as the tender is fitted with a new coupler.

Well, the tender itself needs major work, as it is not tracking right on the layout. I have a few days off, so I should be able to get things rolling smoothly soon enough.
