    Yesterday was a very productive day, installed track on modules 02, 03 and 04. The mainline was extended three feet and the spur for MFA Grain Mill and the REA Depot. Today's project is to install the passing track and yard lead. Just finished the roadbed for the passing track.

    Here are the photos of yesterday's progress. Will post today's later tonight.

    I'm into DCC now. Dale Baker came by yesterday and gave me a Bachmann DCC system. He is too kind.

    What decoder do you recommend for a N scale steam locomotive, I'm not sure if I want sound. Noticed that some units with sound they sound like it's in a tin can.

    Joe, one of the local installers (aside from me) does a lot of N scale stuff and the Tsunami TSU-1100 Steam will fit in a number of N scale tenders with one of the long shallow sugar cube type speakers and will sound very good. Contact me via Conversation and we can discuss further.

    This afternoon I installed the yard lead turnout and the passing track on modules 02 and 03. Plan on installing ballast on the main and passing track on modules 02, 03 and 04 tonight after dinner. Maybe will install ballast on modules 06, 07 and 08 if there is enough time. Been a busy day but glad to work on the layout for a hour.

    Beautiful track work. Things ought to run quietly and smooth as butter.

    Thank you Jim, glad you like it. Just wish I could find more time to work on the layout but I'm having a lot of fun and that is what is important.
