The past couple of weeks have seen all the wiring finished on the module. I have tested the throttle bus, and repaired the fascia after the module fell off the sawhorses. The tailtrack extension is almost finished, just needs a last bit of soldering/sanding and some paint then I can run a train over the track and check it out.
I also picked up a Kato unitrak V3 expansion module so I could play with building and "Inglenook sidings" switching layout on my bare shelves in the train room. This will just be a temporary setup to give me an opportunity to "play with trains". Check out the link here: http://www.wymann.info/ShuntingPuzzles/Inglenook/inglenook-trackplan.html . The track is all snapped together and Zephyr hooked up, I just need to print out some cards to shuffle for generating the "switchlist".
Yesterday I went to The Hobbysmith and picked up some 0.020" styrene sheets, more Peco code 55 rail joiners, and two 12 packs of Fox Valley Models wheelsets. I got the narrower "semi-scale" units. Eventually I want to convert my entire collection over to these, but right now I wanted to get them to fix some of my early Exactrail cars that came with the plastic wheelsets. I don't know where they got them from, but most of my Exactrail cars have at least one bent axle and a significant "wobble". Those FVM wheels are SWEET!!
Now I need to bust out the weathering powders and paints and get them fixed up.
