Finishing Up Gerber

The rest of the fascia was added for Gerber, phone cutout installed, holes patched, paint touched up, and bezels installed where operators throw switches.

When I take a break from working underneath the layout, I’ll run a few trains thru the yard and try to locate problems.  It has been over a year to the point of running a train.  I may wait for a visitor so two of us are testing at the same time.

Tom Pearson came over last week and finished drilling and inserting feeder wires.  I’ve soldered them to all the rails on the layout.  Currently working on the next town – Red Bluff – installing Tortoises and connecting feeders to the buss.

      Thanks, Jared. I made good progress today after finding another short when I cut a #5 crossover frog in the wrong place. Did I mention I have electrical. Want to get it done ASAP so I can concentrate on scenery and buildings.
