    As promised, a thread to document progress on my layout.

    Electricians were here to swap out my Federal Pacific breaker box, install LED lighting, and additional outlets.

    Bye bye dungeon.

    The "studio" room was eliminated as mentioned earlier. On the "list", remove nails from the 2×4's. I'll re-use them building the layout.

    Many of the coaxial cables in the overhead have been removed, they were remnants from the previous owners.

    Trying to decide whether or not to go with flex track or sections. The loose "period" is the 1950's, however everything from decapods to GP38-2s may be seen on the layout, even more should I acquire them, so sectional track would be correct, but I like the benefits of flex track.

    Nothing like an empty basement to get the juices flowing.

    At this stage everything is still perfect and all things are possible.

    Remember the seven P's.
    Prior, Proper, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance.
    Good Luck with the layout!

    Moving right along. Thanks for sharing. Wish I'd known those 7 P's previously, John. I'm living with the last 3 of them as a result on my little slice o' railroad empire.

    Best Regards,

    Ok, while technically not part of the layout, it is somewhat related. As part of the "self-serving/honey-do" concurrent list, I have painted the "library" room which holds my accumulating Frisco and M&NA/A&O technical/historical materials.

    I've also spent time repairing/maintaining my '68 F100 daily driver, preaching a message at my aunt's funeral, preparing to perform a musical piece co-written with my daughter for this Easter weekend in Cincinnati. My plate is full. Lol.

    Get that "infra-structure" in good condition, keep good relations with the folks at home and always be prepared to demonstrate the skills developed in the principal effort can produce collateral benefits. ;)
