We got a visit from former NASG president Bill Winans and his wife Sandie. They are officially the first people to see my new layout in person. I was able to run an engine and a hopper back and forth on about 7 feet of track.

The straight path through the second turnout on the layout has been installed. The significance of this is that I can now run a train through all of the modeled portion of Track #1. The turnouts have no wing or guard rails installed yet, but the engine pulling a hopper runs through the two turnouts just fine, forward and back. Neat!

I made a slight change to the time frame I am going to model, from 1921 to 1924. This allows me to include the PRR 4-6-0 class G5s. I added pages to this web site to start capturing research data about these locomotives.

Progress has been slowed due to work, but there is progress nonetheless. Added the straight point rail to the first turnout.
