John....

If you are not careful....  you're going to end up with a real railroad on your hands.

I may have to plan a trip to Michigan sometime to witness this  ! ! !

Thanx'
Bob

You are welcome anytime, I would love to have you visit. I'm looking forward to getting this new section wired up and running.

Update:  Tomorrow will be a special day on the S&S RR.  I have one more track joint to link the new expansion to the original layout. The sections will join right over my new workbench. This will complete the track work - but not the wiring. I have many hours of work ahead of me getting everything powered.

Update:  I completed the track connections so the original layout is now connected to the new expansion.  So we officially have a gold spike. I will be working on powering up the track and turnouts in the Superior Yard over the next few weeks. Today, I'm working on the control panel that will connect all those wires that need to be pulled.

As you can see from the pictures this test run was for the mainline only - construction debris has yet to be cleared. My Grandson Isaac is 3 and is having his first sleep over at Papa's house to help him work on the trains. Tomorrow he will help Papa pull wires so the train can go farther into the yard.
