Progress!! We've finally made some further progress... TG has lost the cast, we have the shelf brackets up in the room, and we have some track laid... Here we are last week painting the base ground color Here's the shelf up on the wall. We chose 48" for the bracket height (plus 2 inches of foam) so that it's at a nice eye level for her if standing or kneeling on the bed. The bed is moving out away from the wall for other reasons, which works out nicely. Here she is installing the track. I soldered the rail feeders and laid the first turnout. She did the rest, with a little coaching. Here's the progress so far. We're going to tackle the flex-track segments on the next work session. (yes, that knife was picked up and put away a few moments after the picture was taken... as were the rest of the tools...) Could use some advice on some good-looking but beginner-level building kits. She wants a cupcake factory (bakery / mill), a button factory, and a farm... I'd like to squeeze in some sort of small tank facility like a fuel dealer or something, and a team track or general freight house.
