The work has started toward restoring our HO layout. When the layout is restored it will feature a new switch yard, several new freight yards, and it will be completely DCC. I've started a video series to track the work progress. The first video shows the layout in its current state (our starting point); the second video is a short glance at my locomotive collection. Hope you enjoy the films, thanks for reading/watching!

We are making progress on the layout, but before we start our track work we wanted to ensure the locomotives fit the existing turns. I successfully tested my Spectrum J and 2-10-2; however, my spectrum passenger car had trouble tracking the tightest turn. It may have to be widened :eek:

We completed the track work on the original layout. Here you can watch J-611 pulling a passenger cut over the new main. J-612 is also seen in operation at the end. This week I hope to have the new yard sections mounted.
