I have been busy this past month, all track wiring is done and concealed, and all track has been attached to the layout except some dead end sidings that could have minor changes to them.
Test runs are proving to be very good.
In this set of pictures, the trains are parked at Chicago which is the West end of the layout, the long 4 track run is next which is the South wall, then across the aisle from the long run is Denver, then circling around and coming into Salt Lake City, back to back with Denver.
Looking at Salt Lake City from the West, one can see the East wall with several buildings and the viaduct. A line will branch off just before the overpass and head North to the right and reach San Francisco.
I have lots of wall to cover with backdrops. Along with that will come topography work, cutting in a river, adding mountains etc.
I sure am enjoying everyone’s layouts and info, all has been inspiring to keep at it.

And now on to Bill (his last post is here).
Thank you for all you do for our hobby!
I’ve gotten more done with scenery and have both sections of my layout together and am operating my railroad.
Attached is the latest video showing the layout in operation.
Hope you enjoy!
It all started after I discovered your site and went from arm chair to benchwork 😀

A huge thanks to Bill and Dick.
I do love what love Bill has said:
“It all started after I discovered your site and went from arm chair to benchwork :D”
What a fanstastic line – expect to see often now, folks.
That’s all for today.
Please do keep ’em coming.
