It helps to have a sense of humor if you’re trying to build a model railroad of some size and complexity. Recommendation: take photos once in awhile. Here’s a picture taken in July, 2005. I posed some equipment facing westbound at the temporary end-of-track. This is where an interlocking begins on the four track mainline. While I would like to make faster progress, I have the satisfaction of descending into my basement today to see that the plywood showed up, the track got laid with all the hand-built crossovers, and switches are now controlling the points. And I did it all! With a little scenary and a tower my wife is building, this will soon look like an interlocking of the Pennsylvania Railroad I admired in my youth.
