Wow mike! Sounds like you and Gavin will be busy for a while. But with the changes, where will we get out Unobtanium from?

Very entertaining. Gavin has a bright future!

In the opening scenes, Mike looks a bit like a ventriloquist.   :)

We noticed this after we posted it. I really was HAPPY too.

Nice update Mike.  Glad that Gavin is so involved, that adds a whole new aspect to the hobby when you get to share it.

Gavin and I finally had some train room time and I got some more work done on phase 1 of the three part layout rehab.

Pretty good depiction of a month in the life of a layout builder.  I did have to raise an eyebrow a bit at your choice of unsupported Homsote for your hidden track subroadbed.  I guess you did too.

I have had to screw 1X4 to some before and may have to do it under there as well. I do not seem to have a swelling problem but rather a sagging problem. In our climate I have never had a problem but we have had lots of rain and higher than normal humidity here this year.
