The basic backdrop was completed, and joints painted.

This week I worked on creature comforts, installing a refrigerator, stereo, and dispatcher’s desk.

My friend, John Garfield, came over and we completed all the prewiring which included fast clocks, Cat 6 for phone system and train order boards, 110 for outlets around the room, 3 wire system for Tortoises, and all 8 power district busses.  Still have to hook up all those wires but I did label them for easy identification including the ends and the holes in the joists, so no mistakes are made mixing districts.

    No grass growing under your feet! Looks grand!

      Thanks, Greg. I hated the idea of starting over at my age, but decided a move to Texas was the best for us. Working as fast as I can. Hoping to have trackwork done by August for the National NMRA in Dallas.
