Thumbs up on the vaccine.  And that’s one beautifully weathered and detailed U-Boat.  I’d have never guessed it was N except for the couplers. It beats my Large-scale PC U25b by a long shot!  Guess it’s time I try weathering mine...

Hmm, another one will eventually come too...

Seeing your PC GP30 in the 2200-series reminded me of this photo, taken in December 2018 at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, of our children aboard No. 2233 in Conrail paint.

That new wood smell - Heading to new house for the weekend. Stop at HOME DEPOT with shopping list
and working in train room/office/studio all weekend. Adding cleats to the top of the shelf brackets, using
1x4 cleats and front stringer. Getting Masonite for backdrop and fascia. I have a track plan and what will be
modeled, after extensive planning - Messing up and redoing was the planning. https://www.facebook.com/sanjacintodisctrict

I worked at a lumber yard in high school.  I love that freshly cut, new lumber smell.  Keep us posted on your progress.

@chuck geiger , if I can offer one suggestion, it would be to make that transition to the west turnout in Hemet a little sooner so that the transition isn't so sharp.

Looking forward to your progress.

I have to wait until August, then 2233 will arrive on my shelf, custom painted & decaled...
Stay safe & healthy

Better - There are some future sidings coming, like at Ellis, according to CLIC abandoned siding, gonna make a sugar beet siding, with portable loader....Those cool SP cars. Ellis or Romoland
is just East of Perris on the straight section. BTW first time I have ever used Any Rail.
