    We'll it's been May since I updated this thread. I have been busy this last month and now it is official, both ends f the layout reach each other. I still have some main line that needs work but I now have a point to point layout going. I still have some wiring to do and the next build out will be for a drop bridge and the staging yards. Then it's time for scenery. :)

    By chance is the area where you've had derailment problems shown in one of these photos?

    The middle pic. Kinda hard to tell but at the far end is where I did the realignment. The tracks on the far left with all the pax equipment is my main line with the wider curves. The other tracks are secondary line more short line stuff. And are to have the run through trains on main line and shorter locals on the inside.

    Here are some pics from the other direction. The first is the realignment. Second looking down all the tracks and the third showing the corner where I still have to work on the round house area.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have added some new power to my layout. 5 pieces to be exact. All programmed and ready to go and yes they have sound. Now I just need to get some decoders for a few atlas RSD 4/5's. I am planning on using these two RSD 15's as yard switchers. Maybe I will find some decent ones soon.[​IMG]

    Looks like you made quick work of cleaning up and getting re-started. :)

    Yeah, still got some more cleaning to do. But getting started was the easy part.

    I have finished my Timetable and System Special Instructions. I would load it here for all to see but it is in word format.

    I like the coaling tower and that nice gathering of motive power.

    The coaling tower is scratch built. I need one more BNSF unit. Not sure which one to get

    Take a look at the Atlsa Das 8-40B units. Nicely done and they run great.

    Ok here are the screen shots of the time table and special instructions. Do to how the shots took, they look a little different than the actual document but the idea is there.
