Might just do that... I need to get some work done so the hobby budget can recover first!

Many years ago I built that station from scratch out of cardboard.  Used xeroxed window sheets and some stripwood to tease out the details.  It looked remarkably good, but alas, cardboard doesn't stand the test of time, and it is long gone.

Maybe I feel another TTrack module coming on!

Nothing railroad related this weekend.  More heavy construction for the basement to allow the railroad work to continue later.  In relation to the drop ceiling, we needed to find a way to get around the panel box that will neat and tidy.  Ken suggested boxing out the area, so that's what I did today after a trip to Lowes for more materials.  Got there at right time, $5 sheets of drywall, I should have grabbed 2 cause I'll need more for the bulkhead as we turn the corner.  I've since filled the missing pieces and got first coat of mud on the joints.

This kind of basement work is always railroaded-related in a way . Think of it as ROW prep! When you're done with all this it's going to be quite the transformation of the space.

Code requires you keep minimum 36" clear in front of the panel.  Looks like you have it, and having that closet will help keep stuff from piling up in front of it.  Now all you have to do is keep stuff from piling up in front of it!

The right side of door frame is right at 36".  Right wall is 42" away from panel.  I didn't realize my angle would make it that close  :scared:

More "heavy" construction this weekend.  2nd bulkhead near completion.  Now I can install the upper level backdrop and continue with drop ceiling grid installation.



Need to start tackling helix design and construction.  Layout needs to be operational by Sept 21-22 for Mainline Hobby Supply open house tours.  It will be hear before we know it.

More ceiling work.  Once I get some vertical grid installed, I can finish up remaining tile work.  Once complete, project will be at 75% stage with just the last section needing done.  That will go to the back burner though as after I finish the tile work, focus will return to beginning the helix construction and laying track on the upper level.  Goal is to have operation by Sept 20, but if helix isn't finished, I'll run temporary loops on top and bottom for the open house. 






Please excuse the mess  :facepalm: :facepalm: :scared:
