It only took me about a week to get the roadbed built around New Year and I have been laying track since. I had a big push this past weekend and yesterday I completed the mainline and the yard at Mt Bogong. This means that track laying is complete except for a couple spurs and maybe some revision of the yard at Geehi. It also means that I can run a train the entire length of the layout, and that is just what we did!
My youngest daughter Georgia had the honour of driving the first train into Mt Bogong. Without a stop it takes around 6 minutes to travel from one end to the other. With stops for water, shunting, etc, a round trip should easily fill an hour or more. I am keen to get some more rolling stock built so that I can give an operating session a try
Great to hear Murray. Will be looking forward to dropping by and having a tour of the shed in about a month :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Dan. We are looking forward to having you visitDelete
Well done Murry, did you have golden spike ceremony and cracked a couple of beers?ReplyDelete
Quite an achievement, full steam ahead now.
I have just been advised that the first of the my Na's have been shipped, you must be looking forward to their arrival as well.
Keep up the great work.
