    Hmmm - Regarding the 4th photo of the Lyric posted above, where is the upper window? Was that a later addition? What's the story with that?

    FYI, I am planning to attend this year's Academy of Chemical Engineers' meeting at U Mo S&T in Rolla again next month. I do plan to make my annual trek to Newburg, Cuba, etc during that trip.

    Does anybody need any pics of anything there?

    Hope the weather is as nice as it was last year.

    Well, the east yard throat rough work is done. Now I need to tweak and fine tune the switches, drop feeders from them,paint/ballast/weather and continue laying track to the west.
    As you can see, the "main" is just laying there for test running. I will lay the main through town when I get the yard trackage down. There are six tracks on the south side and there will be a small three track yard on the north of the main just past the "T" road/branch crossing. The roundhouse lead will come of track six (all the way to the left). I'm going to have to do some hand laying on the west end also, but am getting more comfortable with turnouts now. I think this worked much better than trying to use commercial turnouts because I can do the throat more compactly with hand laid and some curved turnouts.
    Picture ain't that good, but you can get an idea.

    Looking good, Don. I wish I were at that stage of construction, but I have a few kinks to sort out before I can start actually building. I don't know if selective compression can save me....

    I spent most of today tweaking and tuning the turnouts and still need to work on them. Dead spots, some shorts and assorted pains in the butt.
