    Happy Wednesday Frisco Nation,

    Hoisting the last two modules for the Crawford and Cherokee (7.5-ft modules) up onto the workbench for switch machines. The 8 new modules all have feeders and power bus.

    Hope all are well, and Happy Thanksgiving!.

    Looks good Robert.

    Not much here this week. I did get the chassis to the Springfield truck painted black. I also have a couple more I'm working on for my buddy in Toledo.

    Bill, I have an idea that involves a multi-layer pc board interleaved joint that would align them vertically and horizontally.

    Keith mine is on a curve so theirs extra involved. I can line it, without too much trouble. It would be nice if I could just shut the gate, take a look and hi-ball. I will be watching to see what you come up with. Bill

    That is good work on the landscaping, that is what I want to try super detail. Making the scene look real is now my challenge. Ol James does some nice stuff, and theirs nothing wrong with a operating layout, something functional to simulate train movements. I had 40 years of that though, so, for me it's the memories the scenes. I want realism I should have a edge, cause I have seen a LOT of Railroad. Realism Period. Bill
