    I bought a 30 Watt soldering iron tonight at Walmart for $9.97. My old one needed to be replaced, it was probably about ten years old.

    This evening I bought another soldering iron, this one is a Weller butane type. I've never used one so if anyone has any tips please let me know.

    Well, I finally got to work on my layout tonight. It's been about three days since the last time, installed one piece of track on module 07. There is a slight mismatch in track level between modules 07 and 08. To compensate for the mismatch I put some tooling shims between roadbed and track.

    I received a Frisco passenger train and a E-8 locomotive from Gary, gna, last Saturday. It is the original release that is all Silver with no Red stripes. I've been looking for one for a long time. Will change the number to another E-8.

    Glad you can use them. Let's see 'em run!

    I wish my HO E8 was 2020 Big Red--I have 2022, Middleground.

    Very nice Joe, it will be nice to see it in action on your layout! You are making good headway, you should have in service in no time!

    While Cynthia was getting ready to go to the grocery store I finished installing the mainline trackage on modules 06 and 07. It was just a few minutes but made a little progress. Next is installing track and a turnout on module 08 South. Also cut some lumber for a extension of the L-Girder supports for module 01. Sometime in the near future I'll start working on the valence, it will be 16 inches wide and go around the room.

    Now it's time to go to the grocery store.

    This afternoon I cleaned up solder on several turnouts to get them ready for installation. Will install them along with track on modules 03, 04 and 08 South tonight.
