A bit more work was done today on the staging yard. The North side of the double-ended main staging yard has been laid down, feeders and all.
After a bit of a break, which was spent mostly shoveling ungodly amounts of snow and ice, it’s official. First feeders have been installed on the railroad.
It has been a bit on a slow side past week as the shipment of track and turnouts for the Staging level is still somewhere in the cross-country Post Office pre-Holiday mess. Should’ve ordered these items much sooner, but a local hobby shop kept spinning me in circles for two weeks telling me how they would be able to get these items at a fair price, just to backtrack afterwards both on the price and delivery times.
A two part video from a PECO Instruction DVD circa 2000, with good advice for anyone entering the hobby.
