Catching up on this tread ... Wow, some great progress and super modelling. It will be at least 5 years until I get so far with my project. Keep up the the good work. The photos especially are great to look at :)

Last piece of my catenary is finished now! I also completed the Main Station, which is the last building that I planned for my layout. To do that I bought Auhagen 13329 and cut off the part of it, making it a bit smaller in order to compliment existing buildings and not to overwhelm the rest.
I can say that the scenery on my layout is finally finished.
Few weeks ago I ordered 30 light signals, hope they will arrive soon.
This will be another time consuming process as I will have to assemble them from scratch.

Another project I just completed is the assembly of Diesel Locomotive SP45 and I am happy to say that it is now fully operational, and I will bring it to our next show.

I still have a problem with double-slip turnouts. I can only run trains across and I don’t know how to connect them to have full control of switching.
I am using now MP1 and I wonder what else I need to fix this problem. If anybody knows how to do this please let me know. I would greatly appreciate.

My new SP 45-219 completed!

With some smokey days upon us recently, I decided to spend more time indoors than working outside. What a great excuse to build something for our display (good news I did not have to wait for winter to do this…) I chose a theme of rural setting with some grain elevators for an accent. These are the first grain elevators I have ever built, even though I always liked their rugged architecture. I studied several options and as I could not decide which one to choose…. I had to build three of them! Now I am forced to build TWO modules to properly fit them in! My wife calls me crazy… and I am afraid, she knows something about it….Now I have to order some tracks, build the boxes and finish everything for Chilliwack show.

Finally finished second section on new set of modules.
This will be presented in our November Vancouver show, but only if our cat approves of it!

A very realistic siding with the grain elevators. With the daylight, it looks great. Nice work!
